The Chipko Movement – Case Study

The Chipko Movement – Case Study

This one of three environment-themed case studies (the others are the Green Belt Movement in Kenya and Right to Roam in UK). This case study is the story of how women in India in 1974 successfully resisted the cutting down of their forests by hugging the trees and setting up groups to guard them. The lessons explore the concept of ownership, introduce the idea of ‘impact assessment’ and use P4C discussion in and out of role.

“A powerful case study that really focused the attention of the students.”
