The stories of our roots

Updated : June 19, 2019 03:58 PM IST

Cities and Canopies is an account of trees in Indian cities written by Harini Nagendra and Seema Mundoli in which the authors explore the intersection of history, culture and ecology in urban India, through trees.
With an urban-oriented future looming, the authors bring attention to the natural elements of the urban environment that the next generation is going to grow up alongside and emphasise the need to protect it.
In their interview to Mongabay-India, the authors talk about their inspirations and their attempt to change the narrative of urban ecology by looking at economic growth and development through environment protection.
