17 participants from around the country with various backgrounds and skills headed off to the calming foothills of the Himalayas, Rishikesh for the first training for trainers organized by 350.org in India. The happy campers pooled in their energy, enthusiasm and skills to share an experience that we’re sure many won’t forget.
We had sessions on climate science, movement and campaign building, media and the creative use of art as a medium to convey our vision to the world. But the most powerful session was storytelling, where the individuals spent some time introspecting and then shared their stories with the rest of the group and this really bonded us together.
We asked them a few questions at the end of the workshop and our new 350 intern, Vir Chowdhry, a student at FLAME put together a cool video with a few videoclips and snapshots from the training.
