A congress of journalists, environmentalists, experts and opinion leaders. A state-of-the-art symposium to discuss, debate and demystify the year’s key issues of environment and development. After the grand success of the inaugural conclave in early 2019 (https://www.cseindia.org/page/aad-gallery), we bring you the second edition of this annual event.

Issue and subject-based sessions. Releases of new reports and books. Opportunities for interactions and one-to-one interviews with experts. Access to a wealth of top-quality content and information. For three days in CSE’s beautiful residential campus at Nimli, at the foothills of the Aravallis.

Close to 70 journalists and 30 experts meet and brainstorm over the three days.
