PUNE: A two-day national conclave, titled “Architects, Architecture Education and Practice: Imperatives in the context of Environmental, Ecological and Social Challenges in Urbanising India”, was held at MIT-WPU’s Kothrud campus on Saturday.

Organised by the India Habitat Forum (INHAF), with support from MIT-WPU and Mashal, the conclave outlined the first draft of a manifesto — The Pune Declaration: A Way Forward — framed by the participating architects. 

The final declaration will be submitted to colleges and schools by December 31.
