This section of the Pune wiki aims to develop ideas for Environmental Education and Information that students and citizens of Pune need and can themselves generate.
These would help us take better care of our neighbourhoods, campuses and the larger city. Maybe they would help us understand how to reduce our individual and collective ecological footprints; how to be a more equitable city, and how to enhance well-being for all of us
