A 4 hour session on Environment, held on 18 Aug 2020, as part of the Janta Parliament (People's Parliament) process for India, 16-21 August. This was organised by several dozen networks and organisations of people's movements and civil society, to highlight the fact that the official parliament has not met when it should have (with COVID as an excuse), and to raise demands from people across India that political circles need to listen to.
