CHAPTER-2

A FESTIVAL DREAMED TO CREATE A BETTER TOMORROW BY CREATING AWARENESS TODAY.

Our lives are linked to the environment in ways that we have just begun to understand and we need an urgent, coherent, holistic framework to address the challenges faced by our actions and its effect on the planet.

This festival will offer a platform for like-minded people to voice issues of sustainable living and will encourage startups, curate ideas and try to foster change.

THE FESTIVAL

We expect nearly 7000-8000 people in the age group of 16 – 50 years, along with their partners, friends, and spouses, to gather together at DLF Avenue, Saket on 1st February 2020 to discuss and debate issues related to sustainable cities, environmental responsibilities, biodegradable waste, while propagating management of waste at the ground level, our homes. We also add our voices to the global call of “What we cannot reuse, let us refuse”.

After all, careful management of all essential global resources is a key feature of a sustainable future.

The festival will have a captive audience who are at their most receptive. Amplification would involve a social media blitz and venue branding. We are creating viral videos with celebrities and recognized faces who will promote the ideology of Be Good and ForEarth.

In 2017, we began our efforts to a better world with The Don’t Party, a concert to raise awareness for Women Empowerment. Last year we scaled it up by creating a bigger core thought within which we keep raising awareness about key issues that affect the world and us.

Change is possible only when we work in collaboration, cooperation, and consensus. Also, common objectives and goals make partnerships more meaningful as they help us achieve our goals faster and more efficiently.

We hope to bring a wave of change in the mindset of youth, adults and the old by sensitizing them to climate change and reduce/reuse waste and to be more responsible towards the usage of non-renewable resources in our daily lives.

We want to introduce and promote the idea of sustainability to them and are looking forward to a good amount of participation from schools and colleges for the cause. We have 3 areas of collaboration with the NGO’s who are rigorously working for the cause and want to engage with the target groups directly.

OUR STEPS TOWARDS SUSTAINABILITY

NO PLASTIC/ FLEX ZONE

We will avoid the use of plastic at our festival and encourage the attendees to do the same

WASTE MANAGEMENT

We are collaborating with companies that deal in waste management to segregate our waste responsibly while looking for alternate ways to deal with the waste that is generated

SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

We will keep our festival production as sustainable as possible by using recycled, up-cycled, re-purposed material

Why?

Global warming, also referred to as climate change, is the observed century-scale rise in the average temperature of the earth’s climate system and its related effects. It is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of this, the largest influence being the emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide.

Alongside, every year 13 million tonnes of plastic leaks into the oceans, of which 50% is disposable plastic items that represent marine litter. Remember plastic can survive in the environment for 500 years.

In India’s context:

India is generating 56 lakh tonnes of plastic waste annually. India’s contribution to plastic dump into the world’s ocean is 60%. The two main rivers of India- the Yamuna and Ganga are examples of the effect of this waste affecting marine life and the rising levels of water pollution.

  • Our water sources are depleting
  • We need better waste management integrating within it the Prime Minister’s vision of Swachh Bharat
  • Make efforts to reduce air pollution by using public transport and car-pooling.
  • If we do not change our waste practices now then we will soon be buried in our own muck.
  • We hope to bring a wave of change in the mindset of youth, adults and the old by sensitising them to climate change and reduce/reuse waste, and to be more responsible towards the usage of non-renewable resources in our daily lives.
  • We want to introduce and promote the idea of sustainability to them and are looking forward to a good amount of participation from schools and colleges for the cause. We have 3 areas of collaboration with the NGO’s who are rigorously working for the cause and want to engage with the target groups directly.
