It’s a big month as the Geology for Global Development team embark on a major natural hazards education and sustainable development project in the Himalayas.
The project (part of a broader sustainable development project in the Himalayas) will be aiming to:
- Share our knowledge and expertise,
- Learn from others about aspects of best practice in both understanding science and understanding culture and social development,
- Identify practical skills development opportunities for students in the UK.
CGS academics are also involved with this project. Professor Tim Wright will be giving a keynote lecture at the conference in India later next week and Ekbal Hussain has contributed to a booklet that will be used to teach school children about natural hazards in the Himalaya region (above image).
