‘Aligning Ecology with Economy’- a one-of-its-kind virtual conference

The Covid pandemic has brought to the fore the global repercussions due to human negligence. Today, we accept that environmental issues are interconnected with the economy and experts are of the opinion that we will not be able to develop our economy without addressing environmental issues.

Hence, Socio Story Foundation (SSF) is organising a virtual conference on “Aligning Economy with Ecology (SDG 13)” on November 7 from 4 pm onwards. One-of-its-kind, this online event is being conducted to create awareness on various aspects of the environment and at the same time to promote sustainability among youth. Climate change is real and it’s one of the most pressing issues in the world that requires our attention. We at Socio Story believe that awareness on climate change is important in order to sensitize youth on sustainable living.

Manoj Pachauri, Founder of Socio Story, said, “The present situation calls for a transformation to a ‘Green Economy’ which is in line with the environment. A positive connection between ecology and economy can help in increasing the well-being of the society and at the same to conserve our natural resources.”

“The event is being hosted with a motive to derive solutions from the environmental stalwarts, which could be implemented in the long run,” added Pachauri.

1.     Grammy awardee Ricky Kej- an Indian composer, music producer and Environmentalist
