These students have led the campaign in organizing biodiversity contests among school children and learning with village community. The objective behind the effort was to inculcate the interest among college and school children towards biodiversity use and conservation and thereby reduce the rate of knowledge erosion with the help of local wisdom.The paper introduces issue of collaborative learning on biodiversity between children and village wise men and reflects some lessons learned about the knowledge networking in the society. It also discusses some possible factors behind creation of good environment of learning between wise men and children in forms of participatory approaches applied.
