Step into the world of Bhoomi College — http://www.bhoomicollege.org/
A unique community-based institution focused on fostering Earth Consciousness and Sustainable Living…

Bhoomi College has been an idea, a dream in seed form for a long, long time. It continued to grow through the Prakriya Green Wisdom School, where in subtle and tangible ways they continued to work on building consciousness about ecologically wise living.
In 2007, a group, began working on an Earth Citizenship seminar and then went on to organizing conferences on Food, Health and Climate Change(2009) and on The Good Life (2011). As Bhoomi Network this group expanded, and after 2 years of bringing out the Bhoomi magazine and organizing several programmes on Inner and Outer Ecology, they are now a formal college as well.

THE PEOPLE’S INSTITUTE FOR RETHINKING DEVELOPMENT

After fifty years of so-called development efforts, and despite great scientific advancements, India (and the rest of the world) finds itself mired in a paralyzing socio-cultural, environmental and spiritual crisis – overwhelming in its scale, intensity and rate of growth.

While education has been framed as the cure to this crisis, in reality, the factory model of schooling is part of the problem. Around the world, education systems have become commercialized ‘businesses’ which serve to stratify society, glorify militarism, devalue local knowledge systems and languages, manufacture unsustainable wants, breed discontent and frustration, stifle creativity, motivation and expression, and dehumanize communities. The 19th-century model of factory-schooling today stands in the way of building organic learning societies for the 21st century.
