School for Environment Communication

At a time of unprecedented media and digital access for some, issues that matter are rapidly disappearing from newspapers and television screens.  The real issues of governance, regulation and compliance don’t figure in the mainstream media or, at best, receive passing mention. We aim to return the debate to substantive issues.

The School of Communication wants to encourage a robust debate on creating an environmentally-friendly, low energy development model, organically participative and equitable, currently missing in mainstream media.

Following a truly multi-disciplinary approach, the School provides students and young professionals insights into the complex functioning of regulatory systems, the issues of land acquisition and water use, government and judicial intervention, urban sprawl and unequal access as well as waste disposal and pollution control.

Faculty, cutting across disciplines and backgrounds, are invited to interact with students. The courses draw on the rich experiences of editors and writers from CSE's fortnightly magazine, Down To Earth, now in its 20th year.

Field trips, to observe and report on ground-level developments, are key components of our courses.
