2016 Dialogues pour l’Himalaya

1er Dialogues dans l’Himalaya, à Chandigarh et à Solan “Himalayan Ecology”

The events around the proposed dialogue we plan to have in and around Chandigarh. The two-day dialogue will be held at Solan (Himachal Pradesh) in the midst of lower Himalayas on Jan 31-Feb 1. Solan is about one and a half hour by car from Chandigarh. This event will be jointly organised by Dialogue Highway, Chandigarh, in collaboration with Shoolini University (www.shooliniuniversity.com).

We are expecting a participation of about 40-50 people. In addition, we will have participation from the Shoolini University and also of students/faculty from Horticulture & Forestry University, which is less than 10 kms away. The Shoolini University has only ten days back set up a Centre of Research on Himalayan Sustainability and Development. This Centre was inaugurated by Prof Robert Humber, a Nobel laureate from West Germany, on Dec 15. Furthermore, the university is also a part of the Himalayan Consortium established by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) Kathmandu
