Every Wednesday during Michaelmas and Hilary term the OICSD hosts the India Ideas Room; a weekly discussion forum – an ‘Ideas Room’ – at Somerville where we hope to bring together  young and enthusiastic students and early career academics who work on, or are interested in, India and its diverse set of sustainable development challenges. This space will initiate conversations that will spark innovative ideas and imaginative thinking. These ideas may range from scientific to artistic, concern gender or political ecology.

The idea room will be an informal, non-judgemental, space to test out ideas, whatever they are.

In 2016-17 we hosted many Ideas Rooms, covering subjects from Smart Cities to Pakistani and India artists’ collectives, to river systems and child slavery.

If you would like to come along do email zuhura.plummer@some.ox.ac.uk or join us at 5.15pm on Wednesdays during Michaelmas and Hilary terms.
