Masters Programs in Environmental Studies. M.Des. in Earth Education and Communication Environmental education traditionally swings between extremes of gloom and doom at the state of the earth to a joyous celebration of the wonder that is nature. The earth education course at Srishti is consciously centered in the magical majesty of the natural world in order to help students get inspired by a natural connection to everything, both living and nonliving. This course is constructed and delivered with a focus on experiential learning with chosen sites serving as labs. The students develop a contextual framework by extracting and extrapolating from real time engagement in a specific place with a specific context. In these sites, an exploration is about a hands-on engagement with people and their lives, local flora and fauna and the land itself. Art inspired by animals in action (Ananya Singh. Zoo Project), Photo Courtesy: Anupama Arun Current academic-speak focuses on separating economics and ethics while debating environmental issues. In addition, there is a tendency to either look at a site in a people-centric manner or else in a nature-centric manner. This course is an attempt to explore how these polarised, `silo-ised’ views can be made to gradually come together and overlap, dissolving discipline based perceptions and preconceived ideas. The goal of this course is to inspire artists, designers from diverse disciplines, educators, filmmakers, architects, agriculturists, business graduates and makers who seek to build their practices in an ecological frame. It is for people who desire to inspire intrinsic... [-]
