CSE Media Fellowships- Deadline Extended
Last date for submission of applications extended till April 22, 2012
Lives transformed: Tales of climate change impact
While we all agree that climate change is for real, there is actually limited reliable information available on how and where its impacts are being felt the most, and what peoples, places and governments are doing to cope with it. In their proposals, applicants are encouraged to focus on one or more of the following eco-zones: deserts, coasts, Himalayan/mountainous regions, plains and the northeast.
Good news: Celebrating success stories in managing lives, livelihoods and the environment
Environmental reportage has evolved from being disaster reportage to much more; but truly heart-warming stories – good news, literally – are still a rarity. Bring us tales of people, places, programmes and policies that have helped make a difference.
May - July 2012
Last date for submission of applications extended till April 30, 2012
Renewable energy: solution for the future?
India has ambitious national plans for tapping renewable energy, but will these plans stay on course? There are issues of transparency, cost and technology dogging the sector. Also, are RE projects any different from other industrial-mining projects in terms of the impacts they have on the people and environment? What is the current state of affairs in India’s renewable energy sector?
Sustainable mobility for livable cities
How are Indian cities planning their mobility? Are they banking on infrastructure solutions such as more roads and flyovers, or is public transport, pedestrian facilities and cycling spaces the norm for the future? What is working in our cities and what is not?
