ABOUT US
Welcome to a research network in quest of finding answers for 'big question' of sustainable development. We are a think tank aspiring to contribute through our cutting edge research work in the field of ecology, environment, and sustainability. We want to establish ourselves as an advocacy group which can influence decision makers to incorporate sustainability in their decisions.

Founded in 2014 CREESS explores areas such as environmental management, human ecology, industrial ecology, environmental ethics, traditional knowledge, and cultural ecology. 
We are in the field of dance ecology, folklore, and artforms with reference to its connections with traditional technology & wisdom, conservation of natural resources, and sustainability. We work with 'Baiga' community in MP and Chattisgarh and 'Kaibartya' fishing community in Assam. We are associated with other national level cultural research organisations too
