BIOSPHERIC STUDIES AND TRANSDISCIPLINARY PRACTICES AROUND THE GLOBE

BIOSPHERIC STUDIES AND TRANSDISCIPLINARY PRACTICES AROUND THE GLOBE

Born in 2008-2010 as a Training Program from a strategic alliance between many projects of the Institute of Ecotechnics around the world and other local organizations, the Academia Biospherica / Biospherics Academy in its international projection seeks to connect multidisciplinary educational programs within the framework of innovative projects that operate in different countries, encompassing the five main biomes of the earth: mountains, ocean, forests, deserts and cities.

Each course, workshop & event from AB would transmit the practices and know-hows needed to live creatively and sustainably in these critic times at the different biomes, based on essential ecological values, cultural and artistic diversity, restoration of degraded areas, and environmental education. The learning would be vivid and fast due to the experiential nature of the activities, even in its virtual encounters, where participants gain real knowledge by working on cutting-edge projects.

Upon this base built in the existing MOUs, now we are developing its virtual platform and comprehensive articulation/progression in between the 3 levels (Local, Global, Inner), open to establish durable alliances with other key projects on these 5 biomes and its virtual realities. 

4 Areas:

  • BIOSPHERICS & ECOLOGICAL RESTORATION + ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

  • INTERCULTURAL STUDIES & ETHNOSPHERICS

  • DECOLONIZING ARTS & TECHNOSPHERICS

  • WELLBEING & NOOSPHERICS

Attending to the convergences between ancestral wisdom and the new ecological paradigms of science, the focus of the courses & workshops to be offered will be placed especially on the intersection between 4 areas: to transmit knowledge that is at once ecological, intercultural and creative, a seal that distinguishes our contents and intentions.

The training offer will have consecutive levels of deepening from a virtual certification process, through specific courses that will give correlative access to the training itself, with the opportunity to obtain diplomas by participating in face-to-face and volunteer practices of current projects. The high quality and relevance of the topics to be developed would be rooted in a theoretical and practical attitude of excellence, learning hands-on with the best possible references, specially on the main know-how of the different biomes of earth, following the approach established by the Institute of Ecotechnics and allies.

Today, after millennia of Academies distanced from nature and often fossilized in ineffective methods, it was time for the “Academia” to become “Biospherical”, to leave the classrooms and return to the forests, giving rise to a whole retransmission of knowledge, methods and values ​​appropriate to the challenges of this century while being aware of their own synergetic origins.
