Dr. Deepti Ganapathy’s book – Media and Climate Change, has been selected for the 2022 Green LIT Fest Honour Books.

Dr. Deepti Ganapathy is Chairperson of the Centre for Management Communication at IIM Bangalore. Currently pursuing a multidisciplinary interest in media and communication, she is engaged with exploring the use of media for strategic political and corporate communication, climate change communication, news coverage of human trafficking, health communication and digital activism.

Using a combination of popular ratings on e-commerce platforms, reviews and critical engagement with the literature by the team and carefully chosen juries, GLF annually shortlists and honours books in three categories: Business, General Fiction and Non-Fiction and Children. The idea behind having honour books instead of a single book prize is to give readers a sample of the best books on the environment coming out of India and build readership for this literature.
