Sustainability Samwaad: Conversations for sustainable living: Sep 13th – 15th 2018
Sustainable living – a phrase that to us means a harmony between Me (self) and We (environment). This harmony will come when We discuss, think, share, understand and apply. Thus a Sustainability Samvaad!
A space for conversations where we will all get together for 3 days to discuss, ideate, share, reflects on our individual and collective sustainable living footprints. The conversations will also explore the relationship between sustainable living, consumerism & inclusive development.
