Background: India is seen as an emerging economic power, but with its
unprecedented development schemes, it has turned out to be one of the most
vulnerable countries to climate change. Being the second most populous
country in the world, and that its extant resources are perceived
insufficient to cater to the needs of its population, it is in danger of
exploiting its vast natural resources. There is an alarming Climate Change
problem being discussed all across the globe. While the Indian subcontinent
is grappling with the challenge of a sustainable development, the citizens
of India are also becoming aware about the issue of Climate Change.

About the workshop: The primary focus of the workshops is on students and
young professionals within the age group of 16-35 years. They will get an
opportunity to interact with and listen to various experts on issues
pertaining to local environments, vulnerable sectors and its linkages to
climate change. The participants will also learn how to build a campaign
using social media and will have to opportunities to know about green
carriers among other things. The workshops will also be useful for the
participants in building networks with the entrepreneurs. The workshops
will enable them to devise adaptation strategies and actively engage with
the local administration and policy makers to include a Climate Change
resilient plan in their development.
