Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), New Delhi and the The Ladakh Arts and Media Organisation(LAMO) invite you to a workshop on environment and its reportage. The workshop is open to journalists working on local environmental issues in Ladakh.
While issues such as climate change, water, and urbanisation trends would be covered in the workshop, the stress will also be on understanding how best to identify, research and report on them. The medium of instruction would largely be Hindi.
Interested journalists in Ladakh are requested to send their applications to email@example.com, along with their latest CV and copy of one published article/news story. The seats are limited, so we urge you to apply as soon as possible.

Electricity accounted for 57 per cent of total energy consumption during 2011-12 in India -- the building sector used up close to 40 per cent of this electricity. The share of electricity is expected to increase to 76 per cent by 2040. With efficient lighting, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration and architectural design in our buildings, it is possible to save 30-70 per cent of energy. How can we cut electricity costs in our buildings?
