Dr Mandy Sadan, Associate Professor in GSD, will be presenting a public keynote lecture for the Himalayan University Consortium titled 'Learning from Life Stories'. The event is part of a publishing seminar for early-career researchers running from 1 - 11 December 2020 called 'Storying the Sustainable Intelligence of the Earth in the New Himalaya' in which Mandy will also be taking part as a mentor.
The aim of the Himalayan University Consortium is to build a dynamic mountain knowledge partnership among universities, ICIMOD (the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development), and regional member country partners to promote research and learning. By collaborating and pooling knowledge resources, the aim is to help ease some of the shortcomings that regional institutions may have in terms of capacity and funding.
The seminar is part of a drive to bring more attention to Environmental Humanities and the contribution it can make to sustainable development in the trans-Himalayan zone.
