International Honors Program – Rethinking Globalisation (IHP-RG)
Kalpavriksh has hosted students from America as part of their study tour, the International Honors Program – Rethinking Globalisation (IHP-RG), conducted by the Boston University. This course is for selected students to travel across several countries to study the impact of globalization and its alternatives.
Kalpavriksh has conceptualized and executed their program in Sirsi (Karnataka) and Pune (Maharashtra), which consisted of workshops on relevant topics by various speakers, field trips and organizing homestays with families for the students to experience the cultural ethos of the place. The topics covered include biodiversity, community-based conservation, sustainable agriculture, urban environmental issues, education and creative learning, and development projects like big dams.
