ViBGYOR National ENERGY Conference at Thiruvananthapuram

The environment focus theme for ViBGYOR- 2008 is ENERGY. Various aspects of the energy crisis will be highlighted during the festival by screening and discussion of films, international and national. But sufficient justice can’t be done to an issue like energy if it is limited to an event that lasts for 4-5 days. So, we have planned a gradual awareness build up process among the public, policy makers in Kerala. The National Conference on ENERGY at Thriruvanthapuram on January 24th is the first event in this line, which will serve as a platform for presentations by experts and representations of people from areas affected by wrong energy policies or projects, with special emphasis on nuclear energy and the nuclear deal in the present context. People from Koodankulam (Tamil Nadu), and Athirappilly (Chalakudy, Kerala) are some of the groups expected to participate.
