Environmental and cultural education must produce as its final outcome an ethic in individuals that recognizes the importance of our natural and cultural heritage as well as those of the host country and the necessity to take an active role in their preservation This type of education should create a common bond and cooperative effort between people of different nationalities and ethnic backgrounds. In order to better understand a particular country or culture a large part of any education program should not only be stimulating but offer an exciting environmental and cultural encounter. This requires experiencing our surroundings with our senses, rather than having these muted by amenities that are not a normal part of that environment.
