PORT LOUIS, 1 JUNE 2015: Krishna Athal has been selected to represent Mauritius at the International Sustainability School (ISS) 2015 to be held from 3rd to 12th of July 2015 at Lalitpur, Nepal.
The International Sustainability School revolves around 10 days experience, which is designed to give emerging leaders new skills, friends, ideas and inspiration. It is an opportunity to see, feel and know more about sustainability. ISS gives Sustainability Fellows an opportunity to experience grassroot realities as well as learn concrete skills from experts while also discovering themselves. This is a physically, mentally and socially engaging program where selected participants enrich themselves, the communities they visit and each other.
The organiser of this event, Hands-On Institute, aims to create a connection between learners from around the world with the local communities and natural environment of Nepal. Hands-On Institute awakens a sense of connection, appreciation and responsibility towards the natural world and local communities among learners and students. By placing participants in cautiously selected communities and natural environmental assets, HOI’s programs inspire them to act towards a thriving, just and sustainable world.
