BUILDING NARRATIVES OF SUSTAINABILITY
PODCASTS AND MASTERCLASS SERIES
BACKGROUND & RATIONALE
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a severe effect on societies, economies, institutions and governments on a global scale. It has generated an unparalleled health crisis affecting thousands of people, forcing over 3 billion people to be locked in at home, amid a historic struggle for the future. In the wake of such a public health emergency. Swechha has conducted a series of podcasts, webinars and online workshops/tutorials, engaging experts and practitioners from around the country. It aims to empower and equip citizens on issues of climate change and community resilience.
GREEN THE MAP PODCATSTS
Our ‘Green The Map’ Podcast and Masterclass series has been designed to ‘reimagine and rebuild our world’, through ‘relevant and practical solutions that meet the needs of the people (individuals, families, neighbourhoods and communities), and achieving this through building community and resilience during and after Covid-19.
In partnership with the US Dept of State, we are facilitating a series of 6 online podcasts and 5 DIY Masterclasses on a fortnightly basis. These focus on the need for community resilience through environmental conservation, environmental justice and environmental action, and also focus on ‘green’ stimulus going forward. Through the facilitation of these digital mediums, our objective is to build a more resilient and well-prepared community that would be able to anticipate and address climate crisis threats and public health emergencies, on a more immediate basis. Each of these podcasts and webinars would engage citizens on the best practices and policies that can be implemented at local levels to tackle immediate problems, as well as address the need for global advocacy in environmental issues.
We are always looking for young and enthusiastic minds that can help us create the change along with being the change. Whatever your passion, we always have opportunities for you along with endless cups of Chai!
