The SJI team: Dr. Yang Gyeltshen Mr. Dawa and Mr. Cheku Dorji participated a two day international workshop on the ‘Role of University in Promoting GNH through Practice and Rural Development’ from 10th – 11th March, 2017, organized by Sherubtse College, Royal University of Bhutan and Centre for Southeast Asian Studies, Kyoto University, Japan. The workshop was informative and enriching, especially the comparative studies being done between Bhutan and Japan on rural to urban migration issues and related interventions such as the role of agriculture and eco-tourism in sustainable rural development.

SJI shared its experience from GNH in practice through our program areas: Zero Waste, Organic Agriculture, Youth Engagement & Lho Mon Education and Menchari GNH Model Village.

Thank you for inviting us and we will continue to share our experience as we go on.
