EcoNiche is a conservation consultancy based in Goa. We work with partners across India to develop processes for evidence-informed, equitable, inclusive and sustainable actions to address challenges facing our natural environment. We provide guidance and support to identify, synthesise and assess what works, how, for whom and at what cost.
COMING SOON: CLIMATE LEARNING TOOLBOX
Climate change is a long-term reality; its story is about our communities and lives. It does not impact us in the same ways around India. Children will need to contend with a present, and future, of food, water and biodiversity crises, in the context of intensifying weather events. They will need to be prepared to live in a rapidly-changing climate, particularly in vulnerable regions, like our coastlines. Many educators have little or no formal training on how to teach the subject. With the ever-changing research on climate change, formal education systems do not often address the subject in integrated and locally relevant ways. Working with partners across India, we're developing a toolbox to strengthen climate literacy in the country, by enabling educators to easily convey complex climate science in relatable ways, and engage children in relevant discussions and meaningful actions. Stay tuned for more!
THE WEIRD & THE WACKY!
We have all sorts of crazy neighbours on this tiny planet! From tiny architectural wizards and light-producing phenomenons, to expert communicators through song and dance, they live in all corners of our planet, from the darkest depths of our oceans to the coldest heights of our mountains. While we wait to go back outdoors, Journeys With Meaning and EcoNiche have have decided to bring wildlife indoors!
