Attention all University Students!

Air pollution is sometimes terrible in India. You have probably heard that India now has some of the most polluted cities in the world. This is your opportunity to suggest ways of helping fix the problem! 

The Collaborative Clean Air Policy Centre and The Energy and Resources Institute are offering a prize for the best idea for reducing air pollution in the country coming from a team of university students. All ideas are fair game – ways to promote behavioral changes; new regulations; better enforcement approaches; or new technologies.  Completely new ideas are welcome, too.

The first stage involves just a simple online application – see  It is due by midnight IST on Jan 5.  The five winners of this phase will be invited to present their ideas to a group of judges in Delhi, in person or by Skype.  The final winning team of two will be offered internships to work at the Centre/TERI next summer to make their idea become a reality.

Please apply your thinking to solve this significant problem that affects nearly all Indians!
