Environmental aesthetics is a relatively new field of study. It is concerned with how human beings experience their environment through the senses, mostly in a pleasing manner. Neha Khetrapal and Bhavya Chhabra show that moving beyond a Eurocentric focus and evoking culturally familiar aesthetics can be an effective way of getting people in the global South to absorb messages around climate change. Their discussion draws on their work carried out in Prayagraj, one of the holiest cities in India.
