We consider rural communities to be the true custodians of the landscapes we work in. Our primary focus is on connecting children, youth, small holder farmers and people with disabilities to the outdoors through experiential learning and nature based enquiry. This project has an interdisciplinary approach with active outreach education modules such as workshops, camps and trainings. We co-created the ‘Jungle Bandi’ with the Timbaktu Collective this is a mobile conservation education vehicle.
At adavi we create quality outreach materials in regional languages and English. We designed for rural audiences. As a grassroots based initiative our mascot for outreach is the Indian Grey Wolf ‘Yerakka’ (which translates to Red Elder Sister). We use this mascot to highlight the incredible species and biodiversity of the area and to champion environmental action amongst the local communities.
