Divyang Govind resident of Kharol colony, Udaipur, left for Bengaluru on Tuesday. And all this while he has decided to go cycling to a distance of 1700 kilometres.
On 26th December, Govind will take part in Learning City unConference in Bengaluru. The agenda of the conference consists of discussions on weaknesses prevailing educational, political, social and economical systems. The conference will go on until 30th December in Bhoomi College, Bengaluru.
This inter-generational gathering will bring together leading “thinker-doers” from around South Asia who are active in challenging the monopoly of factory-schooling and monoculture, and nurturing diverse learning communities, vernacular traditions, intercultural dialogues, deep consciousness and swaraj. There will be alternative educators, organic farmers, artists, artisans, activists, designers, ecologists and nature lovers, filmmakers, healers, social entrepreneurs, homeschoolers, unschoolers, barefoot innovators, grandparents, youth, spiritual seekers, and more. As with all learning societies’ events, the unConference welcomes families, youth and children. In an unConference, the participants co-create the agenda together around what matters deeply to them. There will be a lot of open space for participants to self-organize in groups around questions, experiences, experiments, workshops, play, music, dance, sports, cooking food, treks, art, etc., in the spirit of deep dialogue and friendship. The gathering seeks to engage the heart, hands, head and home, all of our senses and sensibilities, for re-imagining our lifestyles and systems.
Most importantly, the central purpose of this gathering is to build strong friendships and critical connections across the country. Previous unConferences have been held in Sardarshahar (Raj), Pune, Himachal Pradesh, Udaipur, Mumbai, Brazil, Jordan, Pakistan and Iran.(copied from source shikshantar.org)
