Innovation is the change that unlocks value. It is often said that there is only one thing stronger than all the armies of the world: and that is an idea whose time has come. Enactus, Dyal Singh College, resolutely believes in revolutionizing and therefore, bringing a change by their pioneering efforts with utmost passion and integrity.

It is with an unrelenting drive to break the status quo and develop a new, that their youngest initiative, Project Nawah is endowed upon. Plastic is one of the biggest nemesis of the environment and requires instantaneous eradication. Therefore, Project Nawah is a twin fold initiative, that aims at substituting plastic with the green gold, bamboo and utilizing the pre existing plastic in an efficient and ecological manner so as to reduce the quantum of plastic waste in the ecosystem, conserving life and the world as a whole.

Having been scientifically proven to be the fastest-growing plant, Bamboo is a highly renewable, biodegradable, and an environment-friendly substance. By promulgating the market for bamboo products, the project strives to cut down the use of single-use plastic at the source, provide efficient substitutes for plastic products and thereby, prevent plastic from entering and polluting the land or marines. This will not only discourage the obstruction of ecological stability but significantly contribute to eradicating plastic completely from the environment in the long run as well.

The project vehemently aspires to strengthen the standard of living of socially deprived and a marginalised community of women residing in Dallupura who are on the brunt of vulnerability. Built upon the roots of social entrepreneurship, innovation and ecological stability, the project aims to alleviate the stature of these women to make them self supportive.

Through their collaboration with CIBART (Center for Indian Bamboo Resource And Technology), they imparted their beneficiaries with the requisite training and skills to make utility bamboo products in association with Alina Parmarthan Foundation.

Furnishing the women with monetary assistance, economic stability and skill development, the project also breaks the lines of patriarchy and gender inequality, thus, promising plausibility for a secured future.

The natural world shows us in so many ways a simple truth: there is strength in number. Enactus, Dyal Singh College believes this to the full extent. The team members work conjointly to bring about a positive change in the ever-changing society.

The path to this journey has no end. They strive to remain on this path to a better future for as long as they can because this is the only way forward.

COVID-19 Impact on Environment & Learnings for Human Beings

COVID-19 Impact on Environment & Learnings for Human Beings

COVID-19 impact on environment and public health

As per this story by bbc.com Columbia University researchers found that carbon monoxide mainly from cars had been reduced by nearly 50% compared with last year. Knowing that cars killed over 6,000 pedestrians in 2018 in the US, and air pollution kills perhaps 200,000 more here each year, 50% reduction in pollution could result in dramatic improvement in pubic health. As per Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, higher Covid-19 death rates are proportional to air pollution. Small increase in long-term exposure to the pollutants leads to significantly higher mortality.

COVID-19 scary alert for human beings

As per recent story published by India Today, Dr Ian Lipkin, who is the John Snow Professor of Epidemiology at the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University and Professor of Neurology and Pathology at the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University, COVID-19 pandemic should not be considered as the worst pandemic human beings are facing, more health crises and surprises are waiting for us if we fail to control and balance activities like deforestation, population migration, international trade and travel and climate change. There is a urgent need to work on solutions which should immediately stop disturbance to the natural environment.

As per Sunil Dahiya, an analyst based in New Delhi for Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA), “Pollution is going down, but we cannot let the suffering of so many human beings be the way to clean the air,” Dahiya said.”We can only use the outbreak of coronavirus as a learning lesson for us.”

So, let’s change the way we interact with environment. Let’s start collaborating and learning from community of 400+ environment activists to change the way we see things, to change our behavior to adapt to new climate change.

As we are moving to a more developed society, there is something very important that we are lagging behind, our Environment.
