Program Overview: The Montana State Bioregions Program conducts research and education for holistic decision-making, with a current emphasis in Mongolia.
You will have an opportunity to learn about:
- the history and ecology of Central Asia, with a focus on northern Mongolia
- the current political, economic, social and environmental challenges in a fromer soicalist country
- a process of sustainable devcelopment in which the indigenous people drive much of the process of interacting with outside forces and knowledge
- how to be a contributing team member of an expedition which interacts positively with a rural community
BioRegions uses a holistic process to engage in community partnerships with Mongolian collaborators to share knowledge and build capacity for improving environment, education, health, and use of traditional knowledge and skills in Mongolia and Montana.
