LLC23: Social and Cultural Sustainability in South Asia
We are an interdisciplinary core group of twelve faculty members from four Corridor institutions, each working on different aspects of sustainability in South Asia. The Corridor institutions represented are Syracuse University, Cornell University, the University of Rochester, and Colgate University.
Active since: 2019
- Syracuse University
- Cornell University
We were successfully able to hold a major international conference, "Rhythms of the Land: Indigenous Knowledge, Science, and Thriving Together in a Changing Climate" on the Cornell campus, October 11-13, 2021, after many delays.
The conference ended with a series of workshops on the following topics:
- Practical policy implication of Ecological Calendars? (e.g., application in other regions, peace building and climate migration)
- How can this knowledge be dynamic, updated and transferred to the next generation (e.g., environmental education and STEM curriculum)?
- What are the next steps for further research? (e.g., developing strategies for new ecological indicators)
