HANDPRINT: ACTION FOR SUSTAINABILITY, ICSE, New Delhi, 9 September 2019

The Handprint session at the ICSE presented the Handprint concept, its conceptualisation and vision and how it is used globally. The session also presented four case studies (Earthian, Eco-Schools and Paryavaran Mitra, Pune Cycle Plan) which are Handprint Action based school programmes of CEE and partners.

The session presented SDG Handprint Lab, a local area study and sustainability action pedagogy for Higher Education Institutions initiated by CEE and Plastic Tide Turners- Young Leaders’ Challenge, a programme by UN Environment, in partnership with WWF-India and CEE. 

The core group of Hand-Print CARE discussed the methods to incorporate ESD into the school curriculum. The Hand-Print CARE is an ethics-led action learning proposition emerged as an acronym reflecting an ethic of inclusive respect through Concern for others, being Attentive to needs, showing Respect for each other and being engaged in learning actions for the common good.

The session provided an opportunity for participants to explore how they can use the Handprint methodology in their own projects. The session also introduced the Global Handprint Network and ways in which participants can join it. The session was attended by more than 60 participants.
