Evolving Education in Culture

Evolving Education in Culture

About the WE-ASC Congress
The World Education Culture Congress, WE-ASC 2011 adopts a two-pronged approach:
1. To influence the evolving culture of education and educational pedagogy, with the objective of deep systemic change.
2. To examine representation and application of cultural/traditional knowledge and their dissemination in education systems with a view to developing practical solutions and formats for training, application, sustainable development and human empowerment.

The current system of education, adopted under colonial rule in the 19th century, has served to separate the mind from its local environmental and cultural roots. This has encouraged the formation of a “top down”, structured society, directly opposed to child-based organic human development. Through this excessive control creativity and the growth of innovation and improvement have been stifled. Thus the educational has been distorted.
Delegates from over 40 countries convened in Delhi at the ground‐breaking WE‐ASC World Education Culture Congress, from 12th to 15th January, 2011. This four‐day meet will explore the Relevance of Integral Systems in Formal “Education Culture”, with a special focus on Soft Skills and traditional knowledge systems, and their role in human development and socio‐ economic empowerment.
Initiated in Delhi, the WE‐ASC movement promoted ‘mainstream’ development of holistic teaching methods. It is with this objective in mind that Shruti Rana initiated this movement for cross‐cultural debate, consensus and dynamic action on the evolving “education culture and “culture in education”, by revisiting traditional and modern ways of pedagogy, curriculum development, skills training as well as evaluation and accreditation paradigms.

Shruti Foundation (SF) is a non-profit organization, registered under Sections 12A and 80G of the income tax act, and works towards human empowerment and sustainable development. It was envisioned and founded by a team, whose experiences of traditional knowledge, education, artistic sciences and health care deeply influenced the SF vision. It was concerned about the state of education, gender issues and health care in India and other parts of the world, which often lacked inclusiveness and holism in their perspectives. The foundation’s vision and efforts are in response to the unrest and seeking in society, to a need for empowerment through sustainable living systems and developmental paradigms. The overall purpose of Shruti Foundation is to facilitate research, education and empowerment through skills training and applications in modern and traditional systems, arts, sciences, psychological and spiritual systems for greater empowerment of individuals, communities and societies, especially women, youth and children.

The facets of SF’s action are Research, Experimentation, Education and Application of knowledge for training of aptitudes, faculties and skills for socio-economic empowerment, cultural connectivity and multi-leveled wellness. The foundation has been experimenting, documenting and disseminating traditional, cultural and scientific knowledge through a wide range of educational, cultural and health/wellness projects for facilitating global empowerment and peace, as well as providing relief to the poorer and empowering women and other disadvantaged sections of society. This empowers the underprivileged, women and youth, addresses socio-economic and gender issues, helps reduce inequalities and poverty, and encourages sustainable development for evolving a resurgent world society.

Shruti Foundation is now facilitating its operative branches in South Africa and United Kingdom which will be launched in 2011.
