Goa State Pollution Control Board, 1st Floor, Dempo Tower, EDC Patto Plaza, Panjim

Degradation of the environment is a growing concern in Goa. The discussion about this is endless and there is a myriad of plans trying to halt the degradation. But garbage problems, water pollution and mining pollution continue to increase and have practically no solution. Other countries and regions in the world with similar climate, economic development and social fabric have solved these problems a long time ago. Why not Goa?

Philippina "Pina" Bausch (27 July 1940 – 30 June 2009) was a German performer of modern dance, choreographer, dance teacher and ballet director. With her unique style, a blend of movements, sounds and prominent stage sets, and with her elaborate cooperation with performers during the composition of a piece (a style now known as Tanztheater), she became a leading influence since the 1970s in the world of modern dance.
