On Air: Creating a democratic demand for clean air

28 Nov 2019   |   14:30 - 17:30

Held bi-annually, 'On Air' features conversations with scientists, policymakers, researchers, civil society experts, communication specialists, journalists, and on-ground actors, supporting India's transition towards clean air.

In this edition, we will discuss how citizen awareness and engagement could be strengthened to combat air pollution in our cities. We will hear from resident welfare association representatives, school principals, students, environmental lawyers, and journalists, on their understanding of the air pollution crisis and actions needed to solve for it. In addition, since the implementation of clean air plans warrants coordination between multiple agencies, the dialogue will also aim to answer pressing questions on achieving compliance with dispersed accountability.
