TERI, for innovative solutions for a better tomorrow. TERI was formally established in 1974 with the purpose of tackling and dealing with the immense and acute problems that mankind is likely to be faced with in the years ahead,
- on account of the gradual depletion of the earth’s finite energy resources which are largely non-renewable, and
- on account of the existing methods of their use which are polluting.

A special project is Terra Green, News to save the Earth, (Homepage).
TerraGreen is an e-magazine (published by TERI) that reports significant shakeouts in India’s energy, environment and sustainable development scenarios, once every two weeks.

The news and features focus on a diversity of issues including important developments in sustainable development, forestry, power and energy conservation, biotechnology, pollution and climate change, and on people trying to make a difference. Also essays, interviews, book and film reviews, interesting facts too. Each issue of TerraGreen has a short e-mail version, with a full presence on the world wide web. (See next: About Terra Green).

They publish on AICAIP (All India Coordinating Forum of the adivasi/Indigenous People). (It) was established as a forum for adivasi’s (indigenous people) movement all over India. The organization endeavours to strengthen solidarity and builds alliances among this community.

Needless to say, wherever the organization has been able to spread its wings, adivasi’s have identified their problems, and has triggered an ongoing debate on these issues that often ends up enlightening those involved.
Does that sound interesting? And, is it inviting enough, then what are you waiting for?

You may reach AICAIP at this address: All India Coordinating Forum of the Adivasi/Indigenous People (AICAIP), K-14 (First Floor), Green Park Extension, New Delhi – 110016 / India, Tel: 91 11 2616 3830 or 2619 6640, Fax: 91 11 2619 8042, e-mail.

Catching them young: If you believe in catching them young then this is the place to be.

And, concluding with an organization: Apnalaya, as the name suggests in hindi, strives to create a just and equitable society for all by creating equal opportunities and promoting an optimum quality of life. The organization was initiated in 1972 by Tom Holland, the then deputy high commissioner of Mumbai, inspired by the sight of children playing at construction sites of reclamation work in Nariman Point. Since then, the organization has come a long way. Today its workers extend a helping hand to communities that lack the most basic of amenities, where access to education is difficult and school dropout rates are high. It concentrates on developing local knowledge, skills, and leadership to work on identifying needs, encouraging self-sufficiency through training, and also on providing direct services when required by the local people. If this inspires you too, please get in touch with Ms Leena Joshi, Apnalaya, 75, Bhulabhai Desai Road, Mumbai – 400026 / India, Tel.: 91 22 24949752, Fax: 91 22 23688512.
