FERAL: Foundation for Ecological Research, Advocacy and Learning

Foundation for Ecological Research, Advocacy and Learning

Events

We organise and participate in a number of events each year. These are typically part of ongoing projects, with some exceptions. This page summarises the events we've organised across the years, giving you access to resources and an overview of our participants.

FERAL hosts an independent course management site using Moodle for its courses and workshops. You will find more resources at our Moodle site which you can access here: < http://feral.edu.in >. Compressed backups of some of the Moodle courses have been provided along with the materials here as well.

Workshops

These are the most numerous types of events organised at FERAL. Workshops typically involve an active participation from those attending. We cover a number of hands on workshops trough the years covering applications of GIS and remote sensing, landscape ecology, field hydrology, field methods in wildlife biology and participatory methods for social and vulnerability mapping.

Seminars and Conferences

We often share the results of our research work with primary and institutional stakeholders by organising seminars. These range from large events in conference halls with senior bureaucrats and hundreds of participants to small sessions with a handful of community representatives in schools and Panchayat halls.

Courses

FERAL collaborates with colleges and universities and runs courses for their undergraduate students. In the past we have covered subjects such as marine sciences, culture class and gender, sustainable agriculture and wildlife sciences. We hope to develop this component of our work to include post graduate courses in the future.

Meetings

Members of FERAL often play the role of a facilitator and moderator in events which require a consensus or agreement between two or more competing stakeholders. Examples of such meetings include our fisheries co-management meetings or meetings between traditional leaders and women representatives of self help groups. Many such events are a continuous process of negotiations and involve other institutions and organisations.
