New Delhi International Conference on Cities & Climate Change

Events
Cities cover less than 1% of the planet’s surface, and are home to around 50% of the world’s population, and many of them see a rapid growth trend. Taken together, all cities and urban areas worldwide use 75% of the world’s energy and are responsible for 75% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Remembering Tiananmen Square: Celebrating an Endangered Democracy

Remembering Tiananmen Square: Celebrating an Endangered Democracy

Events
The International Tibet Support Network is coordinating Tibetans and Tibet supporters in remembering the Tiananmen Square massacre. In Delhi, this will mark the celebration of an endangered democracy. Ever since Delhi was brought to a standstill around the time of the Olympics Torch relay, Remembering the Tiananmen Square incident is more to do with how we are entrenching democracy today, within China and outside. People are also being encouraged to wear WHITE that day as a part of the campaign advocated by a Tiananmen veteran Wang Dan who is leading such a protet rally in Washington DC.
