Mangaluru: Climate change has become one of the biggest concerns in our world today. Many global platforms have raised concerns over this heated issue in order to prevent further natural catastrophes from affecting our planet.
Now more than ever, it has become important that the message of environment conservation is spread among the people around the nation. With this thought in mind, the Rotary International (Dist 3181) and JCI India (Zone XV) from Mangaluru have come forward to support the initiative ‘Pedal for Green’, a wakeup call for climate change.
Shravan Kumar, a passionate cyclist and member of JCI Lalbagh, started this initiative for the noble cause of spreading awareness on the protection of environment. ‘Pedal for Green’, is a cycle expedition where Shravan would cover 6000 Kms from Mangaluru to Imphal, passing through hundreds of cities and villages, with the aim of spreading awareness on climate change by talking to the people. He will be travelling Mangaluru – Goa – Mumbai – Nagpur – Gwalior – Jhansi – Agra – Haridwar – Lucknow – Prayagraj – Varanasi – Siliguri – Guwahati – Imphal.
“This expedition will extend for a period of three months till he reaches Imphal after he goes through 10 states,” said JCI Zone President, Soujanya Hegde. She expressed that Shravan has always been passionate about promoting environment conservation. “Earlier in 2018 he had conducted a cycle expedition to promote cleanliness and proper disposal of plastic,” she added.
“During his journey, he will conduct talks among the people in the villages and cities and will address important issues related to climate change. He will advise the people on what can be done on their part to help with the prevention of climate change,” she further said.
This campaign aims at bringing people closer to nature by motivating them to plant trees and reduce greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere in order to control climate change. This project expects to creative awareness among people towards planting Miyawaki Forest and Pharma culture and planting only native saplings. Through this campaign, the organizers hope that the message will spread through social media and create a bigger wave of change.
