ICIMOD Hosts Stall at Eco Festival 2013 in Nepal


On 22 February, ICIMOD participated in the second Eco Festival organized by the British School in Nepal with a motive to raise awareness of environmental issues among students and other visitors. Organic products from ICIMOD Knowledge Park in Godavari, including cardamom and honey, were sold at the ICIMOD stall. In addition, ICIMOD publications and a see-through glass beehive were displayed. 

The British School has been working with the UK Eco-Schools programme for the last three-and-a-half years. Through the programme, many new eco-friendly initiatives have been put into place such as regular community litter picks, recycling systems, organic vegetable and eco gardens, and curriculum projects related to the environment.
