HENB | KOCHI | Oct 7, 2015:: Down to Earth – 2015 envisages bringing some of the most distinguished scientists, industry experts and scholars, government and administrative eco entrepreneurs who have pioneered successful alternative communities, and also students from the top educational institutions together. The focus is to unearth deeper aspects of the problem of environment crisis and arrive at an understanding of a well-rounded doable solution that goes beyond temporary, superficial patchwork adjustments.
Indian Union Minister for Environment Prakash Javadekar will inaugurate the summit on environment and economy organised by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) at IMA House here at 10:00 am on Friday.
According to the organisers, the two-day meet titled ‘Down to Earth-2015’ will discuss varying themes like ethics, economy and environment viewing the related crisis and solutions and very naturally the end resolutions are expected in the Vedic and Hindu traditional values and ways to adopt.

The themes of the meet are hot topics with relevance in the current scenario, wherein various developmental projects are getting affected by environmental issues,” said Vinoda Swami of ISKCON at a press meet here on Tuesday.
