Yale Himalaya Initiative (YHI) is the first interdisciplinary initiative in North America that looks at the Himalayan region as a trans-regional whole. YHI partnered with the Center for Trans-Himalayan Studies at the Yunnan Minzu university to jointly teach a summer school in Yunnan Minzu University in Kunming, China from June 27 to July 03, 2016. The summer school was focused to provide an interdisciplinary understanding of Himalayan issues across different themes and to provide a good base for disciplinary approaches to engage with each other. Following the success of the summer school in 2016, the next summer school will focus on the theme of sustainability of landscpaes in anthropocenic Trans-Himalayas.
