CONCLAVE 2021: The New World (Dis)order

Registrations for the conclave are now closed. Please write to Tushita Rawat for more information. 

Covid-19 has shaken the world, and laid the grounds for what is being referred to as the “new normal”. The pandemic and its management hold lessons that are critical for the very survival of the human race and our Earth. What are these lessons, and how best can they be acted upon?

Centre for Science and Environment and its Green Educator’s Network invites its Network members – teachers, principals and vice chancellors from universities and colleges – to its Annual Conclave of Educators, to be held from September 23-25 (three days), 2021, at CSE’s Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute (AAETI) campus in Nimli, Alwar (Rajasthan).

Over these three days, the Conclave will discuss and debate some of the key post-pandemic questions and issues with well-known experts and the Conclave’s participants. These questions and issues will touch upon:

  • Governance and its glitches – the virus, its variants and vaccines
  • Dystopian relationship between nature and humans – the question of zoonotic diseases
  • How not to lose the gains of lockdowns -- air pollution, mobility, accessible cities
  • Building more resilient societies for the future
  • The question of public health and sustainable habitat
  • A world struggling with multiple crises – climate change

These discussions would be expected to help our educators build a fresh perspective on their understanding of the pandemic and its implications, and use this perspective to enrich their classroom interactions.

CSE and AAETI have put in place stringent Covid-19 protocols that must be adhered to by everyone attending this Conclave (please see link for Conclave guidelines).

Network members are requested to register through the registration link. We are offering a limited number of seats in this Conclave, owing to the restrictions on numbers of such gatherings and the accommodation capacity of the AAETI campus. The selection of participants will be done by CSE, and the decision of the selectors would be final.
