The training programme was held in October 2011 and inaugurated by Vandana Chavan, former Mayor of Pune, who was the Chief Guest.
The programme was specifically designed to provide a panoramic view of climate change science, the ensuing environmental and social crises, the crisis of energy security, as well as the likely range of solutions to be sought for adaptation and mitigation. These included the central role of energy, fuel, food and water, as well as other environmental resources and materials. For the time-bound implementation of these solutions, a range of governance and institutional issues need to be dealt with in the near future; an outline and discussion of these was included as part of the programme. The participants who attended included technical and non-technical personnel from various industries, journalists, NGOs, and other civil society activists, as well as academics from various disciplines. The programme provided a multi-disciplinary overview of the real issues confronting us in the 21st century and the need to rapidly generate awareness and capabilities for the future.
