SAgricultural entrepreneurship is imperative for the enhancement of the livelihood and living condition of the people in rural areas. Transformation of farmers into entrepreneurs is often emphasised as a strategy for development of agricultural as well as rural sector in developing countries. Assam is one of the agricultural backward states of India and yet to experience agricultural advancement. The paper attempts to answer two specific research questions. Why is agriculture not a remunerative livelihood option in lower Brahmaputra valley? What are the strategies used by the farmers to make farming a profitable avenue? It is based on key informant interviews with 30 agricultural entrepreneurs in the lower Brahmaputra Valley, Assam. Free listing technique of cultural domain analysis was used to collect data. A multi-stage sampling procedure was used to select districts, block, villages, and agripreneurs. Amongst the ten districts from lower Brahmaputra valley, two districts have been chosen, on basis of the intensity of agricultural activity. The qualitative data was analysed with the help of Anthro tools an R package. Smith’s salience was to analyze the free list responses. In the perception of the agricultural entrepreneurs, inadequate financial capital, farmer’s non-willingness to work hard, and non-remunerative prices were the three main reasons for farming remaining unprofitable livelihood option in the lower Brahmaputra valley. The entrepreneurs use a number of strategies to make agricultural as profitable as a business venture. The most prominent among them were undergoing training, farm mechanisation, availing bank loans, adoption of modern agricultural practices and networking with officials so as to avail the benefits of government programmes.

Quality Higher Education and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) have become part of the discourse and issue in higher education contexts. Every phase or debate of higher education is now being urged to declare its support for ESD. Recently the United Nations (UN) 2030 Agenda proposed that quality education and ESD should play a vital role for the transformation of the world‟s economy as expressed in the Agenda‟s goals and sub goals. The UN Incheon Declaration 2015 highlighted the vital role of education that it plays in the universal journey towards sustainable development across the globe and saving our planet. Higher education should play a pivotal role in the transition towards achieving quality in the entire education system. The UN formally adopted the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) as an outcome of a major global consultative process. Agenda 2030 advocates for providing the opportunity to progress towards the transition to implement quality education and ESD that fosters the knowledge, skills, values, perspectives and actions that lead towards a more sustainable future. The study examines the implementation of Agenda 2030 Global Goal on quality and sustainability in Zimbabwean higher education. The aim of the study is to increase knowledge of potential strategies to meet the fourth UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG4), which strives for quality education. Institutions in the study were at different levels of interpretation, understanding and implementation of Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development Goals. The majority of the participants did not have an all-inclusive knowledge and comprehension of ESD mainstreaming as a holistic approach. That is, an all-embracing ESD integration as a curriculum systemic concept that holds both curriculum and institutional change, to contribute to the overall re-orientation of education towards sustainability. The qualitative study provides a detailed description on the challenges of implementing quality and sustainability in higher education.

Author Name :: Souza, Sérgio Rodrigues De, Santos, Vinícius Da Silva
Country :: Brasil
Page Number :: 49-54
This work addresses the issue involving Bioethics and the role of the graduate in Biological Sciences from the perspective of sustainability. It is a discussion of deep scientific and social interest, because it encompasses present and future life processes, for all generations. As a methodology, bibliographical research was used in texts and documents that deal with the training of Biology professionals and the application of sciences on human existence and its procedures for technical progress and what this implies. Bioethics has its foundation, based on Philosophical Anthropology, since it comprises man in the totality of his expressions and in the infinity of his realization as a person. It is concluded that, as the new responsibilities placed on the professional licensed in Biology go beyond the limits of the simple mechanical transmission of content to a concept of ethical training and social commitment, where the individual learner develops a sense and nonsense of duty to the future, impacted by the progress of its constructions.

Author Name :: Zetou, E., Gouridou, E., Filippou, F., Pitsi, A., Blani, N.
Country :: Greece
Page Number :: 61-68
The purpose of this research was to evaluate the impact of the cooperative method on the learning two Greek traditional dances (Tsamikos and Enteka) and life skills improvement, in children. The participants were 68 children aged 9-12 years (MO = 11,8 =. 28), of which 40 were girls and 28 boys, with the basic condition that the trainees do not know any kind of dance. The participants were randomly divided into two groups, the experimental (n = 36) that followed the cooperative teaching method and the control group (n = 32) that followed the teacher-oriented (order style teaching). The intervention lasted 8 weeks (2 lessons/ week, 45 ́). There were three measurements: initial, final and retention to determine the learning. For the evaluation of the dance performance, the scale/roubrika of Pitsi, Diggelidis and Filippou, (28), was used. The instrument contains eight criteria. In addition, the questionnaire of Hogan, (13), which validated for the Greek population by Papacharisis (23), for the assessment of knowledge, perception and transfer of the use of life skills, was used. Analysis of variance with repeated measures showed that there was group and measurement interaction, but also main effect for the overall performance of the Tsamikos and Enteka dances. In terms of life skills there was group and measurement interaction, main effect of the group, and main effect of the measurement, which means that participants of both groups improved life skills, but the participants of experimental group were better. As they defined, participants understand the concept of thinking positively, setting goals and solving problems. In conclusion, it is recommended that teachers could use the cooperative method for teaching and learning traditional dances and at the same time trainees may develop life skills that are very important for their later adult lives.

Page Number :: 75-81
Due to the unpredictability of global events, many modern organizations attempt to identify potential crises before they occur in order to sketch out plans to deal with them. When and if a crisis occurs, the organization must be able to drastically change course in order to survive. The aim of crisis management is to be well prepared for crisis, ensure a rapid and adequate response to the crisis, maintaining clear lines of reporting and communication in the event of crisis and agreeing rules for crisis termination. The COVID-19 crisis that began in 2019 can be expected to become a textbook example of crisis management. Businesses around the world were forced to shut their doors. Millions of employees were sent home. In this article I will discuss what the crisis management is and ways to create effective crisis management plans. In addition, crisis management will be considered as pandemic crisis management for organizations and specific solutions of effective crisis management systems.
Existence of Crisis management plan allows the organization to lead effectively at the period of crisis. So having an effective crisis management plan for organizations is vitally important. In this article, I will consider two different sectors – economy and education of countries and specifically I will give examples of Georgia.

Paper Title :: Rousseau on the Size of Republics: Between radical democracy and representation
Author Name :: Philip Dingeldey
Country :: Germany
Page Number :: 97-109
Rousseau attacked political representation as repression of the free people. However, in his constitutional drafts on Corsica and Poland, he suggests some representative elements. This article claims that this shift depends on the conception of the size of the republic – for example, the ability of the citizenry to assemble. Any relativization of Rousseau's critique of representation is thus rather a necessary weakening of his theory. This concerns not just the power of the people, but the general will that isunrepresentable. This critique is fundamental and categoric. Though, why does he accept representation for larger states?From the shift in Rousseau's thinking the question arises: Where exactly do this (apparent) contradiction and the differences in the size conceptions of the republic in Rousseau's work come from? This article will comparatively examine the Social Contract and the two drafts – concerning popular sovereignty and its relation to the republic’s size.
