TOWARDS A GREENER ERA: Interdisciplinary Approaches




Acharya Institute of Management and Sciences, Bangalore


on 8 & 9 June, 2007




Today we are facing an ecological crisis caused by the dynamics of development and rapid environmental

degradation. This ecological overshoot is sure to precipitate a collapse of the ecosystem resulting in conflicts and disruptions. According to WWF’s recent report, the earth’s regenerative capacity can no longer keep up with the demand as people are turning resources into waste faster than nature can turn waste into resources. Habitats are being destroyed threatening the bio-diversity as well as human life. Realizing the gravity of the situation, the entire world is trying to cut this global deficit. It is felt that a change in attitude and lifestyle, a more discrete use of finite resources in the production of goods, effective measures to control and prevent pollution, and concerted conservational efforts might forestall the impending catastrophe. Modern

economic development has also taken its toll on culture, language and values.

Some of the relevant sub-themes will be:

Pollution and a Green Earth

Understanding Pollution, Health Issues, Remediation, Futuristic Green Endeavours

Earth Governance

Policies, Law and Implementation, Sustainable Development, Eco-Profit Balancing, Green

Management, Green Efforts

Green Competitiveness

Green Preparedness, Ecology and Corporate Social Responsibility, Environmental Management

Systems (EMS), Public-Private Green Partnerships, Green Marketing

Green Philosophy and Green Cultural Studies

Green Education, Green Theology, Ethno-Science, Ethno-Medicine, Green Literature, Eco-

feminism, Nature-Nurture, Ecology and Gender, Eco linguistics

About OSLE- India


OSLE-India is a forum for promoting ecocriticism, especially in India and also in other Asian countries. Today 'ecocriticism' has come to mean not only 'the application of ecology and ecological principles to the study of literature', but also the theoretical approach to the interrelational web of natural, cultural and supernatural phenomena.
