pandemic talks - Knowledge for a Cause

As India struggles to deal with the second wave of the pandemic with families, friends and communities struggling to cope, we are struggling to simply be. This problem is not unique to India, but is a collective struggle.

Behind the scenes, the world has come forward to support everyone in various ways. As practitioners in the built environment, we have been wondering what more can we do beyond what is already being done to support the hard work of the various NGO’s and the front line workers, and extend help especially to those who do not have access. Keeping this in mind, a few of us in the community have got together to bring professional knowledge and expertise onto one platform to not only further the cause of the built environment, but also enable it all for a Cause. This platform of knowledge will also enable learning, for those young and old professionals, who are suffering with work and learning, in these times of extended lockdowns.
