Bar-Camp 6 Experience:

~Gyalpo

I and Ankit attended Bar-Camp 6, on 11 Oct 2009. We gave a presentation on “India’s stand on climate change and role of sustainable campuses”. We chose this topic keeping in view  COP15 meeting to be held in Copenhagen in December, 2009. The importance of this meeting can be ascertained by the very fact that scientists and leaders have recognized COP15 as the last chance for countries to agree on climate change mitigation and adaptation accord before climate change takes charge and become the ultimate devastating experience ever seen by Humanity.

The presentation mainly explains India’s position on climate change that is to be presented in COP15 and arguments underlying Indian Stand.

We believe, top-down approaches like COP15, policies and accords should be complimented by a simultaneous bottom-up approach by involving people on individual level.

Earth club, IIT Bombay envisages sensitizing the students of today and leaders of tomorrow towards the issue of sustainability and environment by creating a chain of sustainability students clubs in various institutional campuses in India.
