Organised by

Date: 10th September 2015

Today, the biggest challenge that is confronted by all the countries, societies and cultures across the world is that of how to bring about economic growth that is socially inclusive and environmentally less taxing. It is a known fact that, economic development offers better opportunities to improve the standard of living. However, if economic development helps only a few in the society, then that type of development would leads to social inequalities, which can be detrimental to the country. In developing countries like India, the supply, demand and utilization of resources are extremely uneven and skewed. Therefore, Social inclusion becomes a prime point for social harmony and sustainable living.

Energy is the prime mover for development of a country. Since, electric energy is the pure form of energy, which can be used by the industries as well as the domestic households, the overall development of a country, is dependent on the countries capability to generate electricity and uses it efficiently. Conventional methods of power generation would degrade the environment by adding carbon and GHGs to the environment and would result in environmental upheavals. Therefore, a philosophy of Reduction, Recycle and Reuse needs to be integrated both on the supply side as well as demand side of the economy  which requires a paradigm shift at the micro level where individuals think of sustainability as a requirement and not  as a  forced philosophy.

In a country like India, grid connectivity to all the human dwelling places may not be feasible. Hence, developing those areas may become a challenge for any government and policy makers. Therefore, Innovations and Technologies that provide localized energy generation/supply without affecting the environment are very essential.

The above mentioned explanation leads us to the fact that, discussion on Sustainability is multidisciplinary and would account for sociology, anthropology, economics, technology and innovation, management etc. This workshop provided a platform for academicians, Industry players and welfare champions to address the issues related to Sustainability, Integral development & management   and have a meaningful discussion and dialogue.
