Volunteers at DYSoC 2010

The real challenge starts at the end. And the preparation that went in to come to such an end is indeed praiseworthy. Over hundred delegates turned up to face the challenge Delhi is in and took a stand against climate change. Harnessing the beautiful minds of the youth were prominent figures working on environmental issues across different fields in the city.

The carbon map of Delhi highlighted for the first time in public by its author Dr. Chirashree Ghosh, Asst. Professor in Delhi University, raised the temperature of the summit on the first day. The youth got a guiding map on how the city suffers at the hand of the climate change causing agent ‘CO2’. The second day brought forth what many delegates termed as the most exciting part of the summit, an ‘open discussion’ regarding various issues. Dunu Roy, the man known for his sharp mind and debating skill drove the discussion to many meaningful destinations and conclusions that left the audience clapping in agreement to it.

The summit highlights were well expressed through the report our volunteers came up with during working with different groups. It will be a great loss not to share such young minds at work, so the following paragraphs are dedicated to them and their voices. Enjoy reading their thoughts and works…and be a part of the change!

Water (Anupriya Shome): Water is the most important element of our life. Suppling water for consumption is facing many problems politically, socially and economically. Yamuna is the life line of Delhi, but the Delhi sewage system is going into Yamuna largely untreated. This is polluting the Yamuna on a very large scale…

Waste (Pragya Lama): Waste segregation is a major problem. Either it isn’t followed, or even if it is, the segregated waste is eventually mixed at the larger bins. We came up with a few ways to rectify this and discussed other aspects of waste management…

Energy (Munmun Chowdhary): The discussion on Energy was dominated by moral responsibility and attitude change versus commercial and financial viability. The need of the Government is to formulate policies that encourage the growth of the alternate energy sector was highlighted…

Transport (Simpy Singh): The burgeoning economic prosperity of Delhi has empowered many a citizens to purchase personal vehicles. This increase in the number of vehicles is resulting in greater emissions from the transport sector. We tried to list all the problem areas as well as their solution-approach methods for a DREAM TRANSPORT MODE…

Urban Biodiversity (Akanksha Gulia): The clock is ticking and the biodiversity is dwindling. The highlights of the discussion were Chittaranjan Park tiling, declining bird’s diversity in Delhi, North-eastern biodiversity and keeping the foundation of Squirrel Conservation Network, Delhi…

Urban Planning (Saloni Tandon): The group discussion began by a mental tour of what Delhi was since the time of the Pandavas – to the rise and fall of the most famous of the seven cities, to what it is today. The Group managed to touch almost everything remotely connected with urban planning in our quest for the correct reason as to why there was an increase in infrastructure at a pace so fast that the provision of amenities hardly kept pace…
