Study Abroad


Welcome to WE2

Do you feel overwhelmed with information about climate change? Do you think that there has been too much discussion and not enough action? Are you eager to do something, but not sure where to begin?

If you answer yes to these questions, then you have come to the right place. We are a transatlantic group of environmental enthusiasts, initiated by students and teachers in Illinois and Austria. We wish to link ourselves with similar groups at colleges and universities in the United States, Europe, and globally, as well as with non-government organizations and citizens who are committed to act. Our goal is to develop an expanding platform for people to exchange information, discuss initiatives, and to ensure a better future for our planet with our activity.

Are you interested in learning more about environmentally friendly study abroad opportunities? Perhaps you have new ideas for reducing carbon emissions on your campus, in your neighborhood, regionally, and worldwide. If so, we would like to hear from you! By linking with us you will have an opportunity to learn more about various environmental programs on both sides of the Atlantic, but more importantly, to initiate and participate in environmental projects. We will assist you in connecting with others who are interested in your project, no matter where they are. We also will strive to keep you up to date with most recent developments in the field.

If our approach appeals to you, do not hesitate to join us! We look forward to welcoming you!
