A YouTube Channel : Climate & Global Change Lecture Series

  (Starting Soon).......

  TBD Concept:

  • It is vital that such a transition on global scale better happens consciously, by design rather than disaster. For people to join hands at large, they need to visualize the ‘Complete Picture’ of this existential crisis, its relevance to their immediate lives & a clear road map for action.

  • Any mass mobilization or shaping of Public Opinion requires a minimum threshold of change agents who have sufficiently grasped the complexity of the crisis & also the transition pathways.

  • In this endeavor CTC-TBD intends to be among India’s first digital platforms dedicated exclusively to help understand the fast changing world (more closely India) through the lens of Global & Climate Crisis (GCC) in order to bring the complexity of the Climate science to the common man in a palatable & actionable form through orientation series, domain expert lecture series, interviews and panel discussions.
