On 23rd January, 2015, Care Earth held a one-day consultative workshop in collaboration with the Department of Environment, Government of Tamil Nadu.
As part of the planning and development activities of towns and tourist cities/towns, a number of line departments are involved, and at times, master plans that clearly outline future direction are made. One section that needs to be strengthened within these efforts is environmental management.
The workshop was consultative in its approach and witnessed the participation of senior representatives from the concerned departments such as town planning, pollution control, municipal administration, revenue, tourism, transport, law and order, forests, public works in addition to invited urban planning experts.
After special addresses by the guest speakers, the workshop concluded with a brainstorming session where every participant was given the opportunity to share his/her thoughts and provide inputs on this subject.
