The training workshop 'Transdisciplinarity in Fisheries & Ocean Sustainability' is a unique program, developed by Too Big To Ignore. It is rooted in the transdisciplinary (TD) approach, which argues that the problems and priorities in fisheries, ocean and environmental governance require a broadening of perspectives that cut across academic disciplines, bridge division between scientific and local knowledge, and bring about innovation in teaching and learning.
The TD training workshop in Sylhet is organized in conjunction with the 1st International Conference on Sustainable Fisheries (ICSF). The first two days of the workshop will happen prior to the ICSF, with the expectation that the workshop participants will attend the conference. The conference field visit to the wetlands on August 28th is an integral part of the TD workshop, and the last day of the workshop will be on August 29th.
There is no lecture fee and the teaching/learning materials will be provided to the participants free of charge. The workshop will cover lunches and breaks. International participants will also be offered free accommodation on campus. However, participants are expected to cover their own travel, and other meals, as well as take care of their own visa arrangement.
A small number of scholarships are available for participants whose abstracts are accepted for presentation at the ICSF. Given the theme of the conference, 'Wetlands Fisheries for Food Security', priorities will be given to participants from countries where wetlands fisheries dominate.
