CSE Invites Journalists in and around Bangalore to attend workshop on air quality and transportation December 18, 2015

Dear Friend, 

Cities in India are paying a heavy price for development. An increase in the use of private transport is a key factor for deteriorating air quality in several Indian cities. How is Bengaluru faring, and what does the data on other Karanataka cities show?

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) would like to invite you to our workshop “Bengaluru Dialogue on Air Quality and Transportation Challenge: an Agenda for Action.” CSE will monitor air quality in different parts of Bengaluru and present the analysis at the workshop. This exposure monitoring data and data from other sources will be discussed with key regulators and policy-makers from the city, public health experts and civil society groups, among others, who are involved with city governance, air pollution and transportation policies. 

For Bengaluru journalists
We would like to invite journalists from Bangalore and all of Karnataka to this CSE workshop. If you live in Bengaluru, do join us. It will be good if you could send us a line of confirmation.

For outstation journalists
If you are a journalist from outside Bengaluru but located close enough to start your travel in the morning, attend the workshop, and leave the same day, we will be happy to support your travel. Please write to asrivastava@cseindia.org, 99100 93893 to express your interest in this workshop.

Venue: Green Path Organic Square, Eedigara Bhavana, Near Mantri Mall Metro Station, Sheshadripuram, Bengaluru.

Date: December 18, 2015 

Time: 10:30 am to 1:00 pm
