The concept of sustainability ensures a series of short-term and long-term paybacks to humanity. It accepts that resources are limited, thus, ought to be utilized unadventurously and cautiously to guarantee that there are sufficient resources for people in the future, without diminishing the present quality of life. It is undeniably true that since the beginning, individuals have acted as consumers rather than replenishers of ecological assets, and thus, numerous societies have fallen because of a failure to adjust to the conditions triggered by the unsustainable practices. Therefore, sustainability has been accepted by policymakers and academicians as a key driver to address issues aiming at improving the quality of life of humankind. Sustainability is said to be composed of three pillars ‘Environmental protection’, ‘Social development’, and ‘Economic development, informally referred to as Planet, People, and Profit. Against this backdrop, the Department has planned to organize a webinar on “Sustainable Development: Unravelling the Realities of Environment and Health”, in which the contemporary realities of important dimensions of sustainable development are discussed. While the first lecture throws light on environmental sustainability and development, the second lecture is on the practical problems of access to health care faced by women in rural areas, a key element of social development. To make the webinar successful, the organizing committee seeks active participation of audiences (scholars, researchers, students, and professionals) in the event
