Our event begins with a screening of 'JUNGWA: The Broken Balance', a documentary about living with environmental change in the western Himalayas. Living with natural hazards is part of life in Ladakh : how much of the change is due to global warming is an active debate, among the communities in the mountains and for global science. In the film, Ladakhi writer-director Stanzin Dorjai Gya shares with us the varying concerns and perspectives of the people of Ladakh about the changes they are witnessing in their local environment.
