The Eighteenth CSE Media Fellowships Urbanscapes: how sustainable are our cities? Application Closed

January 2014 - March 2014

What makes a city a city, apart from its people? Local architecture and  building material, urban design, the mobility infrastructure all come together to make it conducive to  'good living'. What are the essentials then, which need to be taken care of while accommodating the modern demands of designing and retrofitting our urban space?

17th CSE Media Fellowships: Fragile Ecosystems of India

July - August, 2013

India’s sheer variety finds an echo in its diverse ecosystems from the barren cold deserts of Ladakh to the heat-swept dunes of the Thar, from the 7,000-odd kilometres of coastlines to the dense green cover of the Western Ghats. Most of these ecosystems are extremely fragile, buffeted as they are by direct human intervention as well as the vagaries wrought by a changing climate.

16th CSE Media Fellowship: Off-grid Renewable Energy

Power beyond the grid: Is renewable doable?

July 5, 2013 - September 5, 2013

This fellowship is supported by Misereor

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) 2011 report on renewable energy sources and climate change mitigation, 85 per cent of current primary energy driving global economies comes from the combustion of fossil fuels.

These fuels account for 56.6 per cent of all anthropogenic GHG emissions in the world. In 2007, energy generation accounted for 58 per cent of India's net GHG emissions. Use of renewable energy sources — such as sun and wind – could, thus, play a role in mitigating climate change and its impacts.

15th CSE media fellowships on Lives transformed: Tales of climate change impact

While we all agree that climate change is for real, there is actually limited reliable information available on how and where its impacts are being felt the most.

Extreme weather events such as cloud burst, cyclones, floods etc are being reported as more intense and frequent world over, and the number of casualties and losses are ever on the rise. Though mitigation and adaptation is on the world's agenda, the local have to fend for themselves.
