Toxics Link, in collaboration with India International Centre (IIC), invites all to a Public Lecture on “Delhi's dying trees?” at India International Centre (IIC), Lodhi Road, New Delhi. Delhi has transformed from being the green capital to being a concrete jungle in less than decade. In a short time, tens of thousands of trees have been chopped down for roads, flyovers, the Metro, the Commonwealth Games, and new constructions. Those remaining have been imprisoned in concrete pavements, or their branches chopped off so brutally that they are now stark looking and stump like. From the early days since nineties, when the Ridge Forest came to be legally protected and the unique Delhi Tree Act enacted, it has only been a steady decline. In fact even in many protected areas, the state of

Invite to Public Lecture: Yamuna and the City – Natural or Ornamental

Events
Toxics Link’s Environment & Health Public Lecture Series "Yamuna & the City : Natural or Ornamental" Landscapes of rivers, ecology and nature have been shaped by institutions of "progress" through science, engineering and politics, over time. Nature has 'served' humankind to become ornamental rather than exist as an entity in its own right. The river Yamuna when it flows through a city like Delhi, has to content with being a controlled waterbody, rather than a free flowing entity with its rich biodiversity and shifting river bed. What is its future, and can it navigate between the streams of institution imaginations? Speakers: Mr. Manoj Mishra, Yamuna Jiye Abhiyan Prof. A. L. Ramanathan, Professor, Environmental Sciences, JNU Mr. Kuldeep Singh, Town Planner Modera

Toxics Link’s Environment & Health Public Lecture Series The Urban Tree— Lost in Concrete? ‘If you are determined you can find a wilderness close to you, no matter where you live.’ (Ruskin Bond) The tree has great significance in our lives. But the loss of this identity has its origin within the heroic nature of architecture and its stipulated growth especially in urban areas. The plausibility of making an honest inclusion of trees in the urban spaces is the need of the time for the sustainability of resources. The entire 7,777-hectare of protected area in the Delhi Ridge is facing acute danger from all corners in the name of urbanization and construction. Its therefore an appropriate time to discuss what measures can be taken both individually and collectively to prote
