BU team meets with Green Tara Nepal in Kathmandu
A team of academics from Bournemouth University (BU) on the Erasmus+ exchange met with the Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) Green Tara Nepal (GTN) in Kathmandu this week. BU has been collaborating with Green Tara Nepal for nearly 15 years. GTN is non-profit making charity, established in 2007, which focuses on research, publications, advocacy, training and social mobilization in a holistic community development approach. GTN works closely among the individuals and groups through health promotion using participatory and community development approaches. Over the years various BU academics have conducted many research projects with the support of GTN in Nepal, organised dissemination events and conferences, wrote grant applications, published papers, and so so.
The BU Erasmus+ visitors included FHSS academics Prof. Steve Ersser, Dr. Michele Board and Dr. Pramod Regmi, as well as the Head of BU International Partnerships Dr. Alistair Morrison and Global Engagement Officer Elaine Hakes, and from the department of Psychology Dr. Shanti Shanker, and last, but not least, FHSS Ph.D. student Yagya Adhikari.
I would personally like to say thank you very much for all the support I have received from GTN over the past two decades!
