Environment Support Group works with a variety of environmental and social justice initiatives across India and the world. We pro-actively address environmental and social justice issues and concerns, collaborating across sectors and disciplines, keeping the interests of local project affected communities and voiceless ecosystems as primary focus. The spirit of our involvement is to be sensitive to contextual complexities so that solutions are environmentally and social just, and deeply democratic. The interdisciplinary and versatile nature of our team is our strength in addressing a variety of issues and complex challenges. Started informally in 1996 and registered as a Public Charitable Trust in 1998, ESG's not for profit initiatives respond through a vareity of actions involving research, education, campaign support, and advocacy. We are amongst the foremost proponents in India for the reform of environmental decision making processes working to make them pro-people and pro-environment. From 2014, Environment Support Group is the India Centre of the Minnesota Studies in International Development, a division of the Learning Abroad Centre of the University of Minnesota, USA.
