There were 10 participants from nine countries: eight participated in the 4-day study tour August 16 to August 20, 2008 in Kerala and Tamil Nadu, then the two participated during the Kerala leg.

GAIA recognized this as an opportunity to deepen the members’ awareness and experience on how Zero Waste initiatives in a highly populated country like India are implemented.
