Seven Reasons Why Youth Needs to Act to Protect the Environment

Seven Reasons Why Youth Needs to Act to Protect the Environment

Articles
Our Environment is everything around us and we share an intimate relationship with it starting from our very first day in this world. We, humans, live in this environment but spend little time in thinking and caring about it. This ignorance and inaction on our part is a huge concern because rapid increase in population, unplanned development and other human activities are putting a lot of pressure on the environment today. At this point in time, youth can play an important role in protecting the environment. The young population has more responsibility when it comes to environmental protection. This is because youth is the generation who can easily adopt new ways to save the environment. It is also the generation which will be the most impacted if nothing is done to protect the rapi...
Gandhi, Environment and the Sustainable Development Pathway

Gandhi, Environment and the Sustainable Development Pathway

Articles
Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of our Nation, is recognized the world over for his teachings on peace and non-violence. His birth anniversary, 2nd October, is observed as the International Day of Non-Violence by the United Nations. Gandhi's teachings on non-violence were not limited to conflicts between human beings but also highlighted the need for living in harmony with Nature and Natural Resources. His teachings are therefore even more relevant today, at a time when the world is grappling with an imminent environmental crisis in the form of global warming and climate change. Almost a century ago, in 1909, Mahatma Gandhi had already envisioned and identified the insatiable and unending pursuit of material pleasure and development in the Western Society as a threat to the Planet and it...

HICAP Grant Programme for Journalists Working on Climate Related Issues

HICAP Grant Programme for Journalists Working on Climate Related Issues

Green Jobs
The Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP) is a major initiative  of the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) for promoting adaptation to climate change through applied and basic research programmes. HICAP focuses on five sub-basins of major Himalayan river systems: two sub-basins of the Brahmaputra and one each of the Indus, Ganges, and Salween-Mekong. HICAP is of the strong belief that journalists in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region are often in need of resources (space, time, and means) to support investigative stories on the impacts of climate change and other drivers of change.

Lets Stop Desacreding the Gods

Lets Stop Desacreding the Gods

Green Lens
It is now no secret that all action plans and awareness programmes for cleaning River Yamuna have failed and the polluted stretch of the River has only increased by over 100 km in last few years. It is also known that the status of water quality in River Yamuna in Delhi is no better than sewage. Despite this, the offering of prayers, idols and other sacred religious material across the entire stretch of Yamuna in Delhi continues unabated. This not only de-sacreds the Gods, it also only adds more pollution to the River. The real offering that one can make to this once clean and the holiest-of-the-holy River Yamuna is to urge the government and other related agencies to act, with greater political will, towards its cleaning and management. Until then, let us all stop disrespecting the Go...
