1. What are the one year fellowship programmes offered by Bhoomi College?
- One Year fellowship programme in Holistic Education.
- One Year fellowship programme in Sustainability Living.
2. What is the focus of these one year programmes?
We live in times where there is no dearth of information about the level of environmental degradation/ social injustice, the impending climate crisis or the economic mess the world at large is facing etc. What is lacking is a holistic/systems view, the ability to make underlying connections, join the dots and act proactively. The focus of this programme is precisely that, to enable people to be thought leaders and change agents.
3. What is the target group you are looking for?
The minimum age is 21 and the candidate should be a graduate in any discipline. These courses are open to anyone of varying age groups who is keen on green careers or transitioning to a more sustainable way of living.
4. Are these courses recognized?
These courses include the work of cutting edge thinkers which may take a longer time to reach the traditional universities. However, increasingly in these areas of sustainability and holistic education, new possibilities of work are opening up. We also support those taking up the Holistic Education course to join a distance education programme for a BEd degree from a recognized university.

Faculty will be drawn from a group of educationists, thinkers, activists, social entrepreneurs, pioneers in their chosen field whose life and work are an inspiration.
