Each Dragons study abroad course explores a range of development issues, from issues in health care, resource management and environmental impact, to children's and women's issues, to peace and conflict studies. Through meetings with development professionals, participants learn through hands-on experiential education how the efforts of community leaders and aid organizations both positively and negatively impact the region's people, culture and environment.
This video was created entirely with images, words, and music recorded by Dragons students and instructors in collaboration with local communities (representing 15 countries) who shared their homes, temples, villages, families, music and presence with us. Over 100 contributors from around the world, and growing, weaving together the poetry and magic of this experimental collaboration, Where There Be Dragons' Global Video Project.
