Hands-on Institute is now accepting applications for the 2017 International Sustainability School taking place from June 3-12, 2017. This is different – it is an extraordinary journey, a self-exploratory trek, a hub to find like-minded people lifetime friends, an opportunity to connect with nature, an experience with communities and a place to ignite ideas and inspiration. It brings together change makers from around the globe to become sustainability leaders called the Sustainability Fellows and offers them inspiration, ignites ideas, inculcates skills and provides a team.
Since its inception in 2014, young people from 22 countries have experienced the journey. Program components involve gaining insights from experts through lectures, experiencing village life and a trek in the Himalayas. This is a physically, mentally and socially engaging program where participants enrich themselves, the communities they visit and each other.
The program revolves around 10 days experience, which is designed to give the participants ideas, network and inspiration. It is an opportunity to see, feel and know more about sustainability. Sustainability Fellows will get an opportunity to experience local realities as well as learn from experts while also discovering themselves. This is a physically, mentally and socially engaging program where participants enrich themselves, the communities they visit and each other.
