Yugma Network and Draft EIA 2020 Notification
If Environmental Impact Assessment Notification 2020, #EIADraft2020, is passed it will give a free ticket to destructive industries such mining, construction etc. to pursue projects they want to, without many regulations. That's why hundreds of students across India are raising their voice against it. In this video, Anjali Dalmia, DLRC Alumni, speaks about the meaning of development and the threats to the environment and economy. Her work on EIA 2020 turned into the Yugma Network, a pan-India youth confluence that works towards achieving ground-level environmental justice.
