WEDNESDAY – 04-20-2022 – PROGRAM
Anil K Gupta
An Indian scholar in the area of grassroots innovations, he is the founder of the Honey Bee Network, SRISTI, GIAN and NIF
Member of the World Academy of Art and Science, NAAS, INSA and ISAE.
He is seen as a pioneer in the field of grassroots innovations, in which his contribution includes documenting people’s knowledge with the help of teams of volunteers spread across India. He helps grassroots innovators and communities build on their knowledge systems by providing help in filing patents, promoting scientific validation of these innovations by involving government scientific institutes and private individuals and bodies and facilitating tie-ups with entrepreneurs and industrial groups.
He is known for crafting innovative courses for students at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. One of his most popular courses included shodh yatra, under which he took management students to different parts of the country to learn from local communities and study their knowledge systems. This course was derived from his larger concept of walking through the length and breadth of the country, interacting with farmers, traditional knowledge holders, grassroots innovators, innovative students, etc., which he named shodh yatra (meaning ‘research walk’). It started in May 1998 in the western Indian province of Gujarat.
He plans to set up Global GIAN to scout and support grassroots innovators around the world and link them with educational institutions, pedagogies and platforms.
Pedagogy of the neglected innovator : seeing beyond the obvious
With Dr Anamika Dey & Chetan Patel
Lessons from Shodhyatras… Funding of bypassed regions & communities… Social, economic, cultural, educational, institutional & ecological entrepreneurs.
Shodh Yatra is to undertake a journey for the search of knowledge, creativity, and innovations at the grassroots. It is an attempt, on the part of Honey Bee Network and organized by SRISTI, to reach out to the most remote parts of the country with a firm belief that the hardship and challenges of natural surroundings are prime motivators of creativity and innovations. Shodh Yatra aims at unearthing such traditional knowledge and grassroots innovations. It is also a journey of mutual exchange and sharing of knowledge.
Whatever knowledge and practices that we have pooled in, over the years are shared with the villagers during the Shodh Yatra. We also share the Honey Bee database with the villagers. Shodh Yatra is also a journey undertaken to spread green consciousness and we do it by involving women and children to display their ecological knowledge through various competitions.

After graduating from a top school, Caroline Sost was destined for a career in marketing until the day when her growing interest in ethics and personal development led her to change her life. With this deep desire to be useful, she became passionate about education. Convinced that something was not working in our school system, she envisioned a new type of school that was truly creative and human.
She created this school in Paris in 2007. It is Living School, an innovative place that welcomes more than a hundred children from kindergarten to secondary school. Pupils learn to read, write and count in a fun way, and to become fulfilled and responsible citizens.
The 3 pillars of Living School are:
- self-knowledge: self-confidence, assertiveness, good relations with others;
- Eco-citizenship: achieving fundamental learning by carrying out projects for the planet such as reforestation, saving endangered species, international solidarity or street corner;
- and adult education: workshops and conferences for parents and the Qualiopi training centre for education professionals.
Caroline is the author of the book “S’épanouir à l’école” in which she shares her 15 years of experience with Living School and provides parents and education professionals with guidelines for a life-sustaining education.
Joy, life skills and eco-citizenship at the heart of school and learning
New keys for an education at the service of Life
A student who has confidence in his or her potential is a student who succeeds. This is what we strive to achieve from kindergarten to secondary school, in order to allow the emergence in the world of fulfilled and responsible citizens, contributors to a real evolution of humanity. Living School is a school where, little by little, everyone learns that they can contribute to a better world, at their own level, and by cooperating with others.

Born and raised in Mexico City, he studied history, business administration and psychology at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM); he also studied computer science and worked in business systemisation for 30 years.
His habit of meditation, which he has been teaching for over 40 years, has developed his mind, expanded his consciousness, balanced his emotions, harmonised his energy, strengthened his will and led him to find his true self.
Today, Noé Esperón, founder and director of the worldwide “Extra Ocular Vision®” project, wants all these benefits to be available to all children, teenagers and adults in the world: his meditation practices have been documented, structured, systematised and converted into a simple, natural and effective methodology that allows immediate results.
He has travelled to most of South America and some European countries to train Extra Ocular Vision® instructors.
What is Neuro-Psycho-Pedagogy VEO®?
What types of children is it aimed at and what are the benefits?
VEO® NeuroPsychoPedagogy is a learning strategy that optimally increases neural network connections and eliminates misconnections, corrects and complements the Behavioural Pattern, and improves school performance immediately, from the very first lesson.

Everything starts with education
Life is a long journey that constantly offers us enriching experiences
I don’t know about you, but for me life is like a continuous education. We learn every day from our experiences. But we still have to be attentive and retain each lesson along the way!

“We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children”
This Amerindian proverb, which introduces the International Summit of Education for the Future, is also an invitation to listen to the words of the new generations in order to build the world of tomorrow.
It is clear that today we are leaving for our children and young people a totally unbalanced world where poverty, malnutrition, hunger, wars and pollution are worsening and intensifying.
In the age of the internet and social networks, the world is increasingly international. We are moving towards a universality of knowledge and education without borders. From the beginning, we wanted to give young people a voice. And Life has put everything in place! Satyanna Chris Luken is delighted to bring together a few young people from around the world between the ages of 18 and 27, for a round table exploring 3 main questions:
- How do you feel about your university experience in your country? What are the positive points for you: the richness and enrichment? What are, in your opinion, the negative points: the dysfunctions, the useless or inappropriate things, the things that don’t make sense…?
- If everything was possible, what is the first thing you would change? The second? The third?
- What would be the ideal university for you… the university of your dreams?
Satyanna has already created a festival where she gave a voice to young people. In 2015, the 5th annual Green ValentineS Festival in Laguna Beach, California, invited young people to speak out about their concerns about their future on mother earth and how we could help them to create a sustainable future.
