Thirty young professionals and college students from any stream will be selected for the course, stated in a CSE statement. The aim of this course is to build up and nurture interest and awareness in the area of environment and its management, added in the statement.

The courses those will be covered in programme include the climate change & global environmental governance, state of India’s environment, environmental movement in India, poverty and the biomass economy, ecological rights & natural resource management, land and its use, conservation & conflict, urban growth challenges, sustainable industrialisation & public health concerns etc.

“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. Moreover, a week-long field trip to rural India will also be organized to explore eco-restoration efforts at the grassroots level. Sharmila Sinha of CSE may be contacted ( for further information.
