Environmental Studies major traveled to India with SCU's Global Fellow program to work with the Green Rhinos Program

This past summer Abigail Suster traveled to India as a Global Fellow.  She was placed at the Association for Social and Environmental Development in Kolkata, India, a non-profit organization started by nature conservationists and social development practitioners in 2001. ASED’s vision is to create an ecologically sustainable society, and they hope to achieve this through public awareness, action research, and people’s participation in biodiversity enhancement. Abigail worked on their Green Rhinos Program, which creates youth nature leaders through a transformational leadership process, igniting a passion for nature conservation. As a student intern, Abigail assisted in the preparation of a trainers’ manual for The Green Rhinos Program and explored opportunities for taking this program to the U.S. and other countries that may be interested in the program.
