Book Details

2015 marks the beginning of the UN Decade of Sustainable Development. Sustainable development involves the incorporation of ecological principles in technology development and dissemination. It is in this context that the present book by Ms Megha Aggarwal is a timely contribution. The book covers a wide range of information dealing with agriculture, energy, engineering, medicine, architecture, finance, and environmental management. It should help the young students to become the architects of a sustainable future for our country. I hope the book will be read and used widely.

As India gradually moves towards a “green” economy, new avenues of employment are opening up for today’s youth. For students thinking about future course and career options, this one-of-its-kind handbook offers a rich body of information required to turn a green interest into a future opportunity. From environmental engineering, environmental science, and environmental law to agriculture, climate science, and zoology – it profiles a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and the broad spectrum of careers they lead to. Peppered with anecdotal accounts from well-known professionals and a handy listing of useful resources, The Green Guide to Environmental Courses and Careers is a must-have for any student keen on harnessing a green passion.

The book is a timely contribution.... It should help the young students to become the architects of a sustainable future for our country.
