Bangalore -- A talk series to educate Tibetan students about Tibet's
crucial environmental issues has begun on Tuesday (24 August) in
Bangalore. Two environmental researchers from the Environment and
Development Desk (EDD) of the Department of Information and
International Relations are conducting the talks.

Jigme Norbu and Bhartso Dhondup Dolma of DIIR gave an interactive
talk on Tibet's Environment and development issues at the Institute
for Small Trade Learning at Nelamangla, a training unit of the
Central Tibetan Relief Committee, Dharamsala, on 24 August.

They spoke on climate change and water issues, grassland
degradations, nomads and resource extractions inside Tibet. The sixty
participants, including both staff and students, took active
participation in the two-hour interactive talk. "The questions raised
during this talk session was interesting and thought provoking. Both
of our staff were really moved by their interest and concerns," Mr
Tenzin Norbu, Executive Head of EDD, told TibetNet.

On 25 August, Ms Bhartso Dhondup Dolma gave an awareness talk on the
development activities inside Tibet and climate change impacts on the
Tibetan plateau and downstream countries. The talk was held during a
photo exhibition on 50 years in exile jointly organised by the Tibet
Museum and Indo Tibetan Friendship Society, Bangalore.

After the talk, a documentary film "Meltdown in Tibet" was shown. The
chief guest at the photo exhibition was Sri Roshan Baig, a Member of
Legislative Assembly.

Both the researchers are now on their way to three Tibetan schools in
Dhoeguling, Mundgod to hold similar sessions from 27 to 28 August.
