For the past three years, the India China Institute has been undertaking a Luce Foundation supported research project looking at the intersection of religion, ecology and transboundary social and cultural issues in the Himalayas, known as the Sacred Landscapes and Sustainable Futures in the Himalaya Initiative (SHI). To help bring this research to a wider audience, ICI has partnered with the ISSRNC to host an international conference highlighting the theme of Mountains and Sacred Landscapes.
In addition to papers presented by ISSRNC members and scholars working at the intersections of religion, nature and culture, the conference will also feature presentations from ICI’s core research team and from our partners at ICIMOD involved in the Kailash Sacred Landscape Conservation and Development Initiative (KSLCDI). You can learn more about both projects on our Sacred Himalaya Initiative page, including reading several published stories from the field, view interactive maps from the project area, and learn more about Mount Kailash and the many challenges and opportunities facing Himalayan mountain communities.
