Furthermore, besides giving students a theoretical understanding of the subject, this course will highlight the practical aspects of the GNH model in one’s daily life and lay emphasis on the scope for research in these areas. It also guides students in the practice of many of the GNH tenets in day to day life. The course also involves group projects.
