Dear Ashis,

Trust you are all doing well and staying safe, please take care. Please 
see below an email from our colleague and friends which is self 
explanatory. Please see whether some one can use this opportunity, 
retards, Stanley

Dear Colleagues,

over the next 4 years, the DAAD will fund the ABCD-Centre for Global 
Water and Climate Adaptation 
in which RWTH and IIT Madras are involved. The center fosters a young 
generation of globally oriented environmental specialists. Equipped 
with international research, management and communication skills, even 
entry-level professionals will have a significant impact on the 
increasingly important field of climate adaptation.

The Centre facilitates careers in the fields of water security and 
climate adaptation. A master's degree program on "Water Security and 
Global Change" and a joint doctoral program are being established in 
Aachen, Bangkok, Chennai and Dresden (ABCD), in addition to dialogue 
formats for young scholars.

Graduates of Theology will thus have interesting options for further 
academic qualification, for example with the goal of a doctorate in the 
field of Climate Ethics and Development. The Centre does not provide 
full stipends, but offers a Start-up phase for project design 
and scholarship application in Germany.

The Aachen Institute for Theology is part of the Cluster 3 "Transfer 
Strategies for Climate Adaptation". It regularly offers the M.A.-Programm

Theology and Global Development (Theologie und Globale Entwicklung) 
<https://www.rwth-aachen.de/cms/root/Studium/Vor-dem-Studium/Studiengaenge/Liste-Aktuelle-Studiengaenge/Studiengangbeschreibung/~euzn/Theologie-und-Globale-Entwicklung-M-A/> in 
German language and conducts research in Theology and Technology.

Kind regards,

Axel Siegemund

    June 4th
    Date: 	Thu, 27 May 2021 11:42:46 +0000

    Dear Global Tapestry,

    I work for Picture Zero, a UK production company that specialises in
    telling human climate change stories. We’re currently working with
    the Mock COP team to produce a series of short films called My
    Climate Reality, highlighting the voices of young people at the
    frontline of the climate crisis. The films will be released around
    COP26 in November, and we hope they will have a powerful impact on
    UN Leaders and other influential stakeholders.

    We are now casting for the people and stories to feature in our
    films, and the Mock COP team recommended I contact your
    organisation. We’d love your help spreading the word as far and wide
    as possible! Specifically, we are looking for young people (Under
    30) who are living on the frontline of the climate crisis, and whose
    daily reality is impacted by climate change. This could be somewhere
    with dramatic visual changes (sea level rises, fires, floods) or
    more surprising and subtle changes.

    If you agree that this project might be relevant to your network
    we’d be very grateful if you could share our casting call out via
    one or all of the below:


        Share our casting flyer (attached, and also copied below) - eg
        added to a newsletter or sent round a mailing list


        Share the link to our webpage - https://t.co/ldZHbIEg9t?amp=1


        Retweet our video -


        Share our Instagram post in your Insta stories -


        Share our Facebook post -

    Please let me know if you are able to share as it helps us track
    which communities and networks we’ve reached.

    Thank you very much,




        VR Project

    We want to share your story with UN Leaders to highlight urgent
    action needed on climate change.

    We are casting for young people (Under 30) who are living on the
    front line of the climate crisis, and whose daily reality is
    impacted by climate change. This could be somewhere with dramatic
    visual changes (sea level rises, fires, floods) or more surprising
    and subtle changes.

    If your daily life and community has been impacted, and you have a
    personal story to tell about where you live and why it’s important
    to you, we would love to hear from you. Where possible, please make
    submissions in English language. However, if this is not possible,
    we still welcome applications in other languages.

    Please contact matilda at picturezero.com
    <mailto:matilda at picturezero.com> and send BOTH:


        A video recording of yourself (no longer than 2 minutes) AND


        A short-written statement (between 100-1000 words)

    Submission deadline 4 June 2021.

    Some notes on submissions:

    There is no ‘fixed format’ – we really just want to hear your story
    and get to know you a bit. However, as a guide, feel free to use the
    format below. Please tell us:


        Who you are


        Where you live


        A story about something that is important to you about where you


        How where you live has changed due to climate change

    If you have time, please tell us:


        What life was like before these effects took hold (this could
        during your life, or by reference to your parents or
        grandparents or other family/friends)


        What your daily life is like now (do you have to do anything


        What you expect your life there to be like in 30 years time.


        How your friends and family have been impacted


        Please share any personal stories – feel free to be as specific
        and personal as possible
