Book Details

TerraGreen is TERI's flagship magazine that deals with issues related to sustainable development, environment, and energy. In a world standing on the brink of a major ecological disaster, TG hopes to be the ray of light that lights up the road ahead.

The Cover Story titled, 'Sustainable Construction Techniques for Healthy and Ecological Living', discusses that sustainable construction techniques seek to minimize the negative environmental impact of buildings by efficiency and moderation in the use of materials, energy, development space, and the ecosystem at large. Green construction techniques use a conscious approach to energy and ecological conservation in the design of the built environment. The author dwells on the importance of developing sustainable communities and sustainable construction techniques to minimize environmental hazards and for promoting an ecological way of life.

In the Feature article titled, 'Youth as Agents of Change and Drivers of Development', the author dwells on the 2018 Winter Youth Assembly at the United Nations that engaged over 1,200 delegates from nearly 100 different countries around the world in a meaningful dialogue with key players in sustainability and innovation from various sectors. She highlights the key role that youth can play in achieving the sustainable development goals.

In the Special Report titled, 'Plasticulture: Should we Continue with It?', the authors say that plasticulture is the application of plastics in agricultural cultivation and is fast becoming the most sought-after technique to augment farm yields and farm income. But, there is also a flip side as dangerous toxins released from the polyethylene film can remain in the soil for centuries leading to intense plastic pollution in the agricultural domain. The authors have discussed the pros and cons of plasticulture and conclude that we need to go beyond just the ban of plastic bags and address its use across all sectors.
