Environmental Leadership Course @ Sadhana Forest
Feb 1 2016 – Jan 31 2020 all-day
Environmental Leadership Course @ Sadhana Forest

The Three-year Environmental Leadership Course:

The Environmental Leadership Course was launched in 2009 to offer a unique blend of theoretical knowledge and practical experience. We consider both of these elements to be an essential part of the educational process, it being a means for participants to understand the true work and high level commitment needed to run a successful reforestation project and sustainable community.

Goal and objectives:

The goal of the course is to provide a large understanding to all aspects of sustainability. Moreover, at the end of the 3 years, participants should be able to act independently and to teach this knowledge to others. To do this, they should be able to demonstrate capacities in leadership, improved communication, fund raising, conflict resolution , time and group management, site planning and land evaluation, social networking, construction and infrastructure planning.

Course curriculum

Below is the list of the main themes studied throughout the course:

  • Habitation & Alternative construction (methods, materials, and designs)
  • Water Conservation  
  • Renewable Energy
  • Ecologically friendly Food
  • Waste recycling and composting     
  • Pollution reduction               
  • Natural Farming
  • Natural Building

There is no starting date since this course works on an individual basis.

Our experienced Wellpaper ladies will teach you how to create the newspaper sticks that are made from rolled up newspaper that serve as reeds for the baskets. You will be instructed and supported during the process. By the end of the workshop you will have made your own basket. You will make the coloring of the final product on your own since its needs time to dry.

The workshops are instructed by WELL women from the villages around Auroville. These women are very well practiced. These women have teaching experience in and out of Auroville.
