Informed Voter Project

@ VOL 5 ON SEP 20, 2018

The Indian National Elections will be held in February or March 2019. This will be a momentous election for the largest democracy in the world, poised to select the pathways towards a inclusive, equitable development not only for its own peoples but also one that will determine the trajectory of critical global issues such as climate change, sustainable development goals of the UN etc. for the next 5 years. My organization is preparing to establish a Informed Voting Service (providing detailed, objectively analyzed information about candidates) to enhance the 'quality' of the election so that citizens of India vote based on information and look beyond rumors, biased opinions cultivated by mass media, and religious/caste identity.

Sand: rarer than one thinks!

@ VOL 5 ON SEP 20, 2018

Pascal Peduzzi puts an importance on the fact that our societies are litterally built on sand. We use sand for roads, dams, buildings and other infrastructures, land reclamation, beach refurbishment, as well as in agriculture, electronics, glass and even in cosmetics. Sand is the second most used natural resource after water and its use was multiplied by three in the last two decades to reach 40-50 billions metric tons per year. This is enough to build a wall of 27 m high and 27 m wide all around the equator every year. What are the consequences and proposed solutions.

Air pollution is a silent killer. 91% of the world’s population lives in places where air quality are dangerously high. Over half a million premature deaths annually in the European Region are attributable to air pollution. Air pollution does not recognize borders. Improving air quality demands sustained and coordinated action at all levels. Dr. Maira Neira speaks about her work at WHO, the upcoming WHO conference on air pollution in Geneva and solutions to improve our air through sustainable transport, more efficient and renewable energy production and use, and waste management.
