A month-long summer certificate course on environment and development issues. Interdisciplinary month-long summer certificate course on environment/development issues allows Indian participants to understand and critically evaluate issues that lie at the interface of environment & development; poverty; democracy, equity & justice.
Classroom lectures, seminars, several local field excursions, a week-long field visit to rural India, together with innovative, challenging project individual and/or group work. Participants are given an intense briefing on issues that are of concern to India and other developing countries. Field trips and meetings with communities serve to illustrate innovations and eco-restoration efforts that communities make to enable them to face the challenges of managing their natural resources base.
Participants will get time to read, report, watch films and review them, attend seminars, and interact with guest speakers, eminent activists and policy makers. As part of their assignment, participants will put together a journalistic product -- online documentary project using text, video and audio; alternatively they will also report, edit and design a magazine.
The course is inspired by a concern that animated the work of eminent environmentalist Anil Agarwal, whose ideas on environment and sustainability remain relevant even today: the need to balance economic growth and ecological concern. He called it ‘the challenge of the balance’.
Rs 18000/ Includes training fees, month long stay, local and outstation field excursions, select reading materials, together with lunch and refreshments during all training days.
We will arrange accommodation (shared, rooms close to the training venue) for outstation participants.
