This discussion will examine the ways that civil society groups engage climate and environment related policy issues in the US and India. How have civil society advocates framed the need to address climate and environmental concerns as a moral call to action? What approaches do civil society actors employ? How do civil society groups reach out to policy decision makers to address specific environmental concerns — about air pollution, access to water, or renewable energy — and how might this work differently in the US and India?
The event is in collaboration with the US Embassy in New Delhi and American University.
