I believe that the seminars and awareness programs that are organised in present time mainly involve the learned and educated people as participants while they should involve the laymen,the common people,the tribal people who are directly linked to the environment and who influence it the most.
Please give your opinion on this and suggest methods by which valuable information could b transferred to even the most poor and backward sections of our society,rather than specifying work of NGOs working under the rural development or environment welfare. Give ideas to include the government as organizer in this case.
Thank you for your reply.
I agree. And that's why it is really a need to motivate the young generation to follow the people who really does the work and whose work really matters.
don't you think that there should be case studies based on the work of such people in the school syllabus so that the children get motivated.....
It's only possible if people like you sir will help to do so..
Sir please send me the name of those two men of your village and their work history so that i can tell about those two great personality to my fellow beings.
It will be of great help to me.
Its good to hear such practical words from you M'am.
The main problem is that we don't want to approach the part of society that actually need awareness and that is effected the most.
Most of seminar are held to deliver presentations and promote research work but it should not be forgot that in field of Environmental sciences the participation of people is most important.
It's an urgent need. We all should start together
that's a great idea.
I too do feel that the pen,paper,costly food and high teas aren't of concerns of the environmentalists.
Yes we don't need them. We are not businessmen, we are not VIPs, we work for welfare of people, for nature and the thing we require is passion and a strong will to protect and serve.
My friend I agree with you and I believe that the people whose lives we think of changing should be given a chance to give their opinion and ideas.
There is a lot of tribal and ancient conservation techniques that can be modified and used in present days context.
Pls do spread this idea so that soon we see the common people happily joining the conferences without any bias.
The answer lies in transparency! You should not put knowledge in a walled garden through training and seminars. The vast knowledge now residing free on the internet is a great solution. We need to add to that knowledge with solutions that work at the grassroots. That was my main goal in creating Global Learning School, http://guides.globallearningschool.com/ an online platform where anyone can add simple guides on solving problems that professionals and people in the field can use to solve field problems. I would love to have volunteers like you who can organize field knowledge into simple interactive online guides that grows with collective wisdom. Are you ready to write your first guide??
Yes definitely it'll be my pleasure if I can be of any help to the people regarding spreading awareness and knowledge related to the environment.
Can I ask you the process to be followed now so that I can be of your help.
Kindly give me the procedure.
