Rebuilding Kolkata's air quality | Kolkata Dialogue - Episode 2

Rebuilding Kolkata’s air quality | Kolkata Dialogue – Episode 2

After a successful inaugural episode of Kolkata Dialogue in May, we are back with yet another episode and this time it is about the city’s air quality.

We have heard and often participated in discussion related to the air quality of our country and city in specific. No wonder that the city’s air quality has always been poor until however the lockdown was imposed to the global Covid-19 pandemic. So what happened then? And how can we further REBUILD the quality? We as individuals have roles to play in our society and hence what roles can we play and contribute?

To talk about this and a lot more about Rebuilding and Reconstructing Kolkata, we’ll have our two talented speakers – Ms. Anumita Roy Chowdhury, Executive Director – Research and Advocacy Centre for Science and Environment and Anthony Khatchaturian, Freelance writer & columnist, a historian.

Join the conversation on Friday, 5 June aka World Environment Day at 12.00 pm as our speakers discuss the WHYs, WHATs, and HOWs of Rebuilding Kolkata’s air quality.

The conversation will take place on Zoom and will be livestreamed on our Facebook page.
