Bir, Himachal Pradesh,
Presenting the autumn edition of Ecological Futures, an 8-day course, exploring the deep interconnectedness and interdependence that human communities share with their natural environments. By using the principles of ecology and tools of design, the course aims to bring together the scientific and the spiritual worldview and offer insights into anthropocentric to ecocentric paradigms.
This is the third of the ecological future courses this year.
The course will be hosted at a small farm in a village called Bir, in Himachal Pradesh, where the participants will also learn about ways of natural farming, soil care, and seed saving.
This course is for people to get familiar with patterns in nature and develop a new language required to articulate the follies of our current worldview and system and imagine the possibilities for a better future.
