Looking back on the Ecological Learning Collaboratory
New from the Cornell Chronicle, a story about the Ecological Learning Collaboratory we discussed in our previous post. Read the Chronicle article here!
The article does a wonderful job providing additional details on the workshop, its goals, and its future. SFHC looks forward to its continued partnership with workshop participants from Tanzania and India, and we are delighted that the gathering attracted interest from both Ritsumeikan University and the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo, Italy. We hope that this is the first step in a dialogue across institutions, organizations, and hemispheres.
Worth highlighting is a quote from SFHC’s own Laifolo Dakishoni (excerpted from the article above):
“Whatever ideas are generated here, we will continue discussing…This will be an evolution. We’ll get some ideas, we’ll test them under our own conditions, and if it doesn’t work we’ll go back to the people where it is working … and get their advice.”
We look forward to keeping you up-to-date in this ongoing experiment in knowledge production and problem-solving.
