Why are we going on climate strike in India?
Climate strikes or marches are peaceful, non-violent ways to let our national and state governments know of our demand to address the ongoing climate crisis and ecological breakdown.
"You must unite behind the science. You must take action. You must do the impossible. Because giving up can never ever be an option."
Greta Thunberg, 16-year-old climate activist
Climate Crisis in India
Declaration of Climate Emergency would firstly require the national government to address this ongoing climate crisis. Flash floods and heatwaves are causing more damage than the rate at which we are 'sustainably developing'. The IPCC assessments for policymakers must be used as a tool to implement any new or review existing policy frameworks.
This means climate and ecology should become our topmost priority in decision-making at verticals from national to ward level. Individual contributions always count and will add on towards the targets, but on a larger scheme of things, only a change in the system can sustain these individual changes.
