About

The highlight of this program will be a unique opportunity to meet with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people, in a day-long audience in Dharamsala, India. Professor Tarik Benmarhnia will teach two courses connected to themes that are relevant to the Dalai Lama's teachings and his own research in climate change and public health. The program will be divided into three parts, an orientation in New Delhi, a service learning project coordinated by Amrita University in Kerala Province in southern India, and a final week of lectures and excursions to understand Tibetan culture in Dharamsala. This program is appropriate for all students interested in environmental studies, as well as public health majors and minors who would like to learn about the connections between health policy and climate change.
