Supriya Sobti: When applying for this course I was hoping to tap into some local issues that are of global importance and interest. A good chunk of what was covered in the programme did make for that. I have got research material and plenty of ideas which should translate to some documentaries over the year.
Garima Gorwankar: I will surely ask my friends to join in. I learnt so much from this course especially during the field visit.
Shobaraj Yumlembam: The program structure addressed the relevant issues adequately, the content and the structure of the course was very good.
Mukesh Rajak: A number of expert discussions, movie screenings and classroom exchanges have resulted me in facilitating a better understanding of environmental and developmental rights and solutions both of which need to be looked at with a holistic perspective rather than through a narrow lens perspective. It opened my eyes on the environmental disaster; it motivated me to discover more about Science and environment and to make a constructive story on this issues.
