BUSINESS PROGRAMS
From fast fashion
LOCATION

PROGRAM DATES
Round 1: 12/22-12/31
Round 2: 2/3-2/12
UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
12: Responsible consumption and production
ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
Sustainable fashion industry is one that must operate in ways that can continue working for years and decades to come. Unfortunately, this is not true of today’s dominant ‘fast fashion,’ meaning wearing clothes only several times before throwing them out or moving on to newer and trendier cheap clothes. The fast fashion cycle is far from sustainable because it depletes the Earth’s natural resources at exponential rates, exploits workers around the world, and results in an overwhelming amount of waste.

During this Summer 2021, the Keru research team will find ways to create sustainable ecosystems that can raise awareness and reduce the impact of environment by promoting sustainable designed clothing. Students will have the opportunity to showcase their work during an exhibition or sale and up-cycle new sustainable fashion.

Shanghai Sunrise would like to expand its audience to broaden its promotion channels, as well as take advantage of best practices in fundraising to increase the effectiveness of its efforts.

Shanghai Sunrise has asked a Keru team to support their efforts by creating and prototyping a fundraising event. During the summer of 2021, Students will conduct research on fundraising practices, establish a compilation of fundraising best practices as it fits into the SHSR context, and actually conduct a prototype fundraiser.

HUMANITIES PROGRAMS
tibetan cultural preservation through ecotourism
LOCATION
Danba County, Sichuan, China
UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL
10: Reduced Inequalities
PROGRAM DATE
2/3-2/12

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
Zhonglu Township is a small Tibetan community located in Danba’s mountains, part of the Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, a community known as “A Thousand Stone Castle Kingdom” that
until recently had limited contact with outside world. The expanse of this tourism hasn’t left Zhonglu untouched; in fact, Zhonglu has seen a large growth in tourists over the past 5-10 years. On one hand, local people are excited by the prospect of new wealth and tourism as an additional source of income. But on the other hand, this increase in tourism have left traditional cultural activities by the wayside. Even in one example, local villagers knocked down a 500-year old watchtower in order to use the bricks to build a standardized guesthouse.

Our local partner, the Yunhe Centre, aims to reduce the impact of unsustainable development and finding innovative ways to preserve the local culture. In the past year, Keru has brought out multiple teams to address the major issues of unfettered tourism and find creative solutions to better help preserve the local culture and traditions of the Tibetan people in Zhonglu.

This summer, students will have the opportunity to experience this unique Tibetan Culture. They will utilize research, photography, filmography and marketing skills to reveal hidden culture and traditions. Students will create a mini-video documentary to highlight ecotourism features in Zhonglu. All these resources will be potentially used as a CSR showcasing initiative and further contribute by raising awareness to support the campaign of Yunhe Centre.

Tuition fee includes local transportation, meals, lodging, activity fee and mentor payment 
COLLABORATION WITH KERU
Keru started our first collaboration with Yunhe centre in winter 2019. our Keru team compiled a comprehensive Ecotourism Guide for future tourists at a popular local guesthouse in Zhonglu. This Ecotourism Guide will help tourists better understand Zhonglu’s culture and traditions, while also encouraging them to be respectful and engaged.
