It Takes A Village to Fight the Haze

As toxic haze chokes parts of India, we are reminded of our own recent escape from the noxious fumes that plagued us for weeks. But as we enjoy sunny skies and clean-ish air, we must remember the fight to put an end to transboundary haze is far from over. We discuss how and why ordinary citizens can participate in anti-haze advocacy.
