Politics, Policy and Pollution Masks: Anecdotes from the Streets of New Delhi

@ POLICY SOLUTIONS TO CLIMATE CHANGE CHALLENGES
ON APR 19, 2017
In the winter of 2015, the condition of air pollution in Delhi was described as ‘severe’. PM 2.5 was 16 times the safe limit. The smog taking over the most polluted city in the world was hazardous to human health. The state and central governments, with contrasting policy narratives and intentions, were able to effectively engage its citizens to help mitigate the problem.
So Praachi Kumar asks: How can policy nudge non-state actors to become mutually accountable for transformative change?

Give Sharks a Chance

Change is coming...
Dearest followers of PechaKucha Lilongwe, As some of you may know, I've moved away from Lilongwe and will no longer be able to organize PechaKucha events for this excellent community. This means that a new person will soon fill the role of City Organizer and continue to bring exciting events to the capital city of the Warm Heart of Africa! Stay tuned for announcements about this move forward. I'll take this opportunity to share a wide and deep thank you to all of you who have supported our first three PechaKucha Lilongwe events -- presenters (of course) for their sharing, co-organizers for helping all of the behind-the-scenes magic to happen, event venue hosts for providing great spaces, and last but never least, all of you who participated as audience members and were an enormous part of the success of these community-building events. May you all enjoy many future PechaKucha Lilongwe evenings! All the best, Jessica
