2. A Talk Program on “Framing Climate Change”
What climate change means – and by extension how we should collectively mobilise a meaningful response to it – remains stubbornly stuck,with most of the difficult ethical, cultural, political and economic questions left implicit, for policymakers to work out!!!!
“Framing” is rapidly becoming a buzzword in debates about climate change, and will not by itself keep fossil fuels in the ground. But we do need a way of thinking and speaking that captures the fact that climate change is not merely one of many environmental problems, but a completely unique collective action problem, and one that is implicated in every aspect of our lives.
Therefore, on the afternoon, a talk program on climate change will be held, with special guests with expertise on the field of Agriculture, Biodiversity, Glaciology and Eco-development.
3. A movie based on Environment will be shown at 4:00 pm in the CV Raman, Tickets for the movie is only Rs. 25.
