BROAD THEME for Volume - VI:

“SUSTAINING GAIA: WOMEN, ECOLOGY, DEVELOPMENT”.

Concept Note:

  • The contemporary world is facing an imminent global environmental crisis and it has become imperative for us to address it. Women have been traditionally associated with nature and its reflection can be seen in widespread use of the terms- Mother Earth and Mother Nature etc. Moreover women are more intimately involved with nature, harbouring centuries old home remedies. With the challenging role of nurturers and providers, women have to bear the brunt of the changing dynamics of the environment.From rural to urban centers,from gathering firewood to providing sustenance to the family amidst new threats to the environment. Family health has also deteriorated due to the increasing levels of toxins in the environment. Women have been proactive in leading campaigns against climate change like Greta Thunberg and Medha Patkar closer to home.
Development is inevitable but it should be compatible with sustainability. The theme of 2022 International Women’s Day as declared by UN is” Gender equality today for a sustainable  tomorrow”. We would like to extend  this theme to explore possibilities for a sustainable road map in which women play an integral part. The proposed volume would try to suggest and look into the relationship between women,ecology and development which would be sustainable.
