A two-day workshop on ‘Indo-German Dialogue on Sustainable Water Resources Management’ was held at TERI University, New Delhi on 03 and 04 October 2016. It received an overwhelming participation from all stakeholders, including youth. The workshop was organized under the umbrella of the German House for Research and Innovation (DWIH), Heidelberg Centre South Asia (HCSA) and TERI University and in partnership with Indo-German Centre for Sustainability, Freie University Berlin and Technical University, Munich.
TERI University in association with ICE WaRM, Australia, organized a two-day Management Development Programme on ‘Gender, equity and water management’ on 07-08 November 2016. The programme aimed at providing a theoretical grounding of issues around gender, water rights and equity, as well as equipping the participants with practical strategies to implement the goal of mainstreaming gender in the water sector. The workshop consisted of professionals from various governmental organizations such as Ministry of Water Resources and associated organizations like Delhi Jal Board and ngos. The pedagogy comprised of lectures, case studies, short films, and group work, to facilitate cross-learning and synthesis.
As part of the School-University Network (SUN) programme a one-day workshop was organized on 19 August 2016 for students of Loreto Convent School, New Delhi. The SUN programme collaborates with higher secondary school students of both class 11th and 12th to various facets of sustainability issues. TERI University’s masters and doctoral students act as trainers, receiving guidance from its faculty members under this programme.
