The conversations are based on our E-book The New Normal: Within me, around me - a compilation of conversations and reflections on ways to bring back balance between nature and humans, environment and economy, development, and sustainability. The book captures in-depth, nuanced conversations with FRB members about concepts, innovations and self-to-society transformation ideas that could be taken up to positively impact our lived realities.
