Abstract: Environmental concerns originated as a result of the massive social changes that happened in the United States following World War II. While environmentalism has a long history, and it wasn't until after World War II that it has become a widely recognised social issue. This began with outdoor recreation in the 1950s, grew into the wider field of natural resource preservation, and then became integrated with efforts to combat air as well as water pollution, and later hazardous chemical contaminants. Just after Cold War, the environment became a major priority for scholarly analysis, not just because scholars were concerned about conservation, pollution, and resource depletion, but that's because there are intriguing technical puzzles surrounding how the international system should address them as well as the effects that occur from the implementation of novel forms of governance, organizations, and agencies. Social demonstrations and opposing organisations have sprung up in response to India's looming ecological catastrophe, often at the grassroots level. Chipko's attempts to preserve mountain forests have garnered worldwide media attention, as has widespread opposition to the Narmada Dam project. They are signs of growing grass-roots political opposition. They are, according to Madhav Gadgil and Ramachandra Guha, the most visible instances of environmental political activity in India.
