Coastal Apprenticeship Programme – A one year programme for children of the fisherfolk community based on their coast, its ecosystem and biodiversity. Based on our field work with the Tamil Nadu coast and engagement with fisher-communities. The intention of the programme is to position the local natural landscape as a rich learning space, and introduce nature-based, outdoor and art-based learning to children of historically marginalized backgrounds. These alternative pedagogies are increasingly being found to create environmental stewardship, be fun and motivating, while also strengthening academic learning.
