British Council Global School Partnership (GSP) Programme is organising a “Student Workshop” on the Global Themes of Sustainable Development and Peace & Conflict Resolution on September 19, 2011 at Radisson Hotel, Kathmandu.

Approximately 70 students from 26 GSP schools from Kathmandu, Pokhara, Biratnagar and Butwal will participate in the workshop. Along with presentations on the Global Themes, the workshop includes a demonstration on briquette making from recycled waste by Sanu Kaji Shrestha, Chairman of Foundation of Sustainable Technologies (FoST) and British Council International Climate Champion Kritii Shrestha and a forum theatre on conflict resolution by Climate Champion Babu Ram Regmi.

The workshop will help students

  1. understand the concept of Sustainable Development in the real world
  2. see practical examples of sustainable projects
  3. learn the process of reusing waste materials produced within their school to make briquettes and the process of using them as fuel for cooking
  4. understand the importance of conflict resolution
  5. witness a forum theatre presentation on conflict resolution and also be a part of it

Vaishali Pradhan, County Manager, GSP said “In order to bring a global dimension into our teaching and learning, it is important to make students understand subjects through practical means.  This workshop is an invaluable opportunity for students aged 13-15 years to understand the concepts of Sustainable Development and Conflict Resolution through practical demonstrations and forum theatre. We hope that the participants can make effective use of this knowledge and cascade it to their friends in school and the community. “
