In developing further the goal to advocate for an alternative development paradigm and right livelihood, the School for Wellbeing Studies and Research will co-create an annual summer school event, Chulalongkorn University Right Livelihood Summer School as an interdisciplinary program in collaboration with Chula Global Network at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok (Thailand); and the Right Livelihood College with campuses in Penang (Malaysia); Bonn (Germany); Lund (Sweden); Addis Ababa (Ethiopia); Port Harcourt (Nigeria) Valdivia, (Chile); Santa Cruz, California (USA). The intent behind the programme is to promote the concept of right livelihood by living lightly on the earth; and to bring together recipients of the Right Livelihood Award and likeminded resource persons, with individuals from various backgrounds and different experiences to share informative and inspiring intellectual dialogues, leading towards future activism based on sustainability and deepening right livelihood. The program will offer the unique opportunity of being in a multicultural setting where participants will benefit from learning and sharing cross-cultural experiences as well as knowledge that will bring in new ideas and perspectives on their careers, new alliances, and policy initiatives.
The Summer School will be held in July 2014 for twelve days including a Right Livelihood public lecture and panel discussion at Chulalongkorn University. Participants will spend nine days in Bangkok. A three-day stay will be organized at Ashram Wongsanit, in Nakornnayok focusing on experiential learning and community spirit. Ashram Wongsanit was set up by Sulak Sivaraksa as an alternative learning space and retreat for development workers.
Topics include intercultural dialogue • agriculture, food and water• green market • post-development • wellbeing economics • empowerment and more…
Participants to the program become a part of a Right Livelihood Movement as they will share their knowledge and vision within the group and for future action. It is through this pioneering process of human connectivity that we join a growing community and expand teachings, discoveries and creativity to others worldwide.
