The programme can be attended online. The talk would focus on topics such as: Can we envision education beyond disciplinary training for young minds? Can we move from preparing students for the workforce that are inherently exploitative of labour and nature in the name of development? Instead, can education serve as a catalyst for promoting a new development paradigm - one that is environmentally conscious and fosters a nature-oriented mindset?
