AWAKENING THE DREAMER, CHANGING THE DREAM

 

By: BIS Correspondent

 

NERUL-NAVIMUMBAI, APRIL 30, 2013: The seminar was held on April 30, 2013 in the Audio visual room in Don Bosco Senior Secondary School, Nerul. It was conducted by Mrs Orla, Fr. Anthony Dias and Fr. Cleophas Braganza.

 

The seminar began with an introduction given by our Principal Fr. Anthony Fonseca.

 

Mrs Orla began the seminar with an introduction of the Pachmama Alliance story which was related to the tribal people of South America.

 

It was basically a seminar to create an ecological consciousness among us and how we could implement it in our curriculum. The four important questions which were further highlighted and explained were:

 

1) Where are we?

 

2) How did we get here?

 

3) What's possible for the future?

 

4) Where do we go from here?

 

These questions were explained through videos and power points on the issues of Globalization and Extinction.

 

The group discussions and brainstorming sessions conducted by Fr. Anthony Dias and Fr. Cleophas Braganza added an extra punch to the seminar. We discussed how we could integrate ecological values in our day to day teaching.

 

The seminar ended with an inspirational video 'Lead India'.

 

"WE BELONG TO ONE UNIVERSE AND WE NEED TO PROMOTE A NEED BASED ECONOMY RATHER THAN A DESIRED BASED ECONOMY."
