Media Briefing Workshop: Reporting on the Himalayan ecosystem: Challenges and opportunities

October 12, 2015

Date: Friday, October 9, 2015

Venue: Indian Forest Research Institute (IFRI) conference hall Dehradun, Uttarakhand

The Himalayas and the cities and towns that they tower over have been at the receiving end of various kinds of environmental threats – unplanned urban growth, depleting reserves of natural resources like water and forests, growing pollution of air and water, and disastrous impacts of a changing climate.

Do we understand the enormity of these problems? Are we doing anything to tackle them? How do we report on such issues and concerns? New Delhi-based think tank Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites you to a Regional Media Briefing to discuss environment and development issues relevant to Himalayan regions, and the craft of reporting on them.

Journalists from the states of Jammu and Kashmir, Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, and Assam are attending the workshop. Journalists based in Dehradun are welcome to participate – a copy of the programme schedule is attached for your reference
