“Over the one month of its duration, it will allow the participants to explore the complexities underlying the environment-development debate in India through a variety of tools and methodologies – lectures, readings and seminars, presentations, debates, film shows, interviews, and a week-long field trip,” informed Sharmila Sinha of Centre for Science and Environment.

Participants in the course will also be expected to report for, edit and design a magazine as part of course assignments.
