Many of today’s global problems arise from the availability and use of natural resources, caused by the growing population and changes in lifestyle. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy of India (Energy Access, 2012) states that India has the world’s 5th largest generation capacity and it is the 6th largest energy consumer accounting for 3.4% of global energy consumption.

Sustainable habitat is the single most influencing factor which outlines a society’s aspiration for living a sustainable life. Habitat policies are the government’s response in understanding problems, perceived approach towards the remedies, and visualize future development of the society.

Future habitat can only be sustainable and inclusive if we can replace the traditional ways of visualizing policy merely with the economic cost-benefit outcome. Our approach is to visualize habitat not only from the perspective of space but also it’s deep ecological and emotional values attached to spaces. This program aims at training the participants in the area of Sustainable Habitat.
