Harsh Mittal, the organiser of the UnConference said that this initiative has been possible with the joint association of a few like minded institutions viz. Shikshantar, Sukoon, Swaraj University, Banyan Roots, Millets of Mewar, Pukar, Natyansh Society, Sankalp, Eco Hut, Flying Foxes, Bindaas Community Media and Verve School.
He added that this Sunday UnConference event will envision a environment where there is a continuous thirst for learning, where each participant is both a teacher as well as a student, a society where each one is a contributing builder, an environment of learning where there is a congruence of heart, mind and labour.
“Most learning is not the result of instruction. It is rather the result of unhampered participation in a meaningful setting. Most people learn best by being “with it,” yet school makes them identify their personal, cognitive growth with elaborate planning and manipulation.” Ivan Illich
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.
