"As India continues to develop and most of the growth is yet to be built with a large younger generation, she has an option now to go for sustainable development and inclusive growth by managing emissions, adopting clean technologies, and, leapfrogging inefficient technologies, assets and practices. India's growth with very large younger generation (over 35% of India's population is below the age of 20), integrating sustainability is the key issue and the conference Greening with Goethe which Goethe Insitut, Bangalore is organizing jointly with CiSTUP makes an attempt towards this goal."
