Hi Mirian,
I donot know whether or not you are aware about high maternal mortality ratio in India or not. Can you contribute something in educating Indian girls/women in the pursuit of reducing maternal mortality?
Please do not feel taxed because of comments.
With lots of regards,
Dr. Balraj

Hi Shahidul,

Thanks. I will be going to India in November to attend Tiblisi+30 Conference on Environement and Sustainability Education... We will be offering an Earth Charter workshop there and a whole session with different groups sharing experiences of working on these issues... You might wish to come or ... we might decide to stop over in Bangladesh... I know some people there who work with us and basically translated some of our documents - The Earth Charter - in the main local language. They are called the Centre for Sustainable Development, the head person is also (or was) the Chairperson, IUCN National Commiittee-Bangladesh. In our website you can find the Earth Charter text in Bangla language... Cheers,

Hi Mirian, Your area ‘effective education (formal, non-formal and informal) and behaviour change’ is interesting. I too cover education, among some other issues, with great keenness.
I think you would find Bangladesh a fascinating place for research in non-formal education as NGOs, social groups, donor countries and the government have been working together in the sector for more than 30 years.
Let me know if you think about to visit the land.
Stay in good health

You should tell everyone that your work on sustainability goes back to the preparatory days of the Earth Summit. No?

Hi Shahidul, I think you were quicker than me.... I was joining this group while doing other things.... Basically I am interested in sustainability and in bringing this notion and understanding to a broad gorup. I am researching for ways in which we can be more effective in education (formal, non-formal and informal) and behavirour change.

Why didn't you tell anything about you? If you think your smile tells many thing, I guess to some extent you are right.
Anyway, let us know about you more.
Thanks and regards.
