About the session and presenter
ICCCAD generally hosts weekly seminars where researchers’ and/or other relevant environmental professionals present their work, experiences and lesson learned in regard to climate change and development. The seminars are meant to increase coordination, cooperation and technical and social skills among ICCCAD staff.
Mr Iqbal Ahmed (Visiting researcher from Durham University, UK) will facilitate the session with the children from (Social and Economic Enhancement Programme (SEEP), an NGO in Bangladesh working with street children.
The children will have an opportunity to participate in dialogues with scholars, researchers, and practitioners to discuss their own lived experiences that may create awareness and opportunities for bridging research options with ICCCAD and its partners about children’s issues. Further, the dialogue may also give the children an opportunity to experience a professional working environment, a space that could be linked with their aspirations to ‘boro howa’ and ‘manush howa’.
