 "Development" is a word that is deeply entrenched into the consciousness of an average human being these days. Elections are fought and lost on this platform and the society is fascinated by it. Yet, there is very little discussion on socially responsible development and the relevance of a holistic approach. In an effort to improve awareness on this most relevant subject, NECAB plans to organise a talk on this subject titled "An Introduction to Sustainable Development". Shri Jayaraj, a teacher and research student at the London School of Economics will lead the discussion.


Details of the event:

Location - ECA Auditorium on the ground floor. ECA is on the 100ft road, Indira Nagar.

Date and time - 05 - Sep - 10, at 5:00 PM. Estimated duration is 2 hours.

The topic looks interesting. I will be there, the venue being a stones throw from my place. My question:-  How can any development be sustainable unless it stops some where on the line or degenerates at the same rate that it does develop? comment guidelines
