Why earthian?

We are moving into an unprecedented situation for human life on the planet - a full earth with limited resources, breaching a number of safe limits for human existence while social deprivation continues to be a challenge. Ponder these:

  • In the last 7000 years, in which all of human society and culture evolved, the global climate has never deviated as much as 2° from today's climate. As per the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the best estimate for temperature rise even in a low emission scenario is a steep 3.2° F. We are entering a situation that has never happened in the last 7000 years and that is something human society has never ever faced.
  • Conservative estimates suggest that more than 5000 species of our inherited genetic library irreversibly are extinguished every year. And this is 10000 times as fast as pre-human extinction rates.
  • As per World Bank statistics as of 2010, almost half the world, over 2.4 billion people, still lives on less than $2 a day.
  • According to UNICEF data as of 2010, 22000 children under 5 die every day due to poverty and malnutrition.

The current ways of dealing with these challenges have not created any significant shift in direction - in our thinking, attitude or behavior. It is increasingly becoming clear that we need a new way of thinking, sensibility, behavior and responses to approaching these challenges. earthian aims to help our schools and colleges prepare our younger generation to understand these challenges and build the knowledge, skills and attitude needed to deal with these.

22 March - World Water Day A day for water and water for Sustainable Development Every person on this planet needs water for survival. World Water Day is UN’s initiative to spread awareness of this integral resource, so that the citizens of the planet may act responsibly. The Global Risk report for 2015 released by the World Economic Forum ranks water scarcity as the number one risk in terms of impact. At Wipro, our engagement with water goes back more than a decade and spans a range of initiatives both, within our campuses, as well as outside with the larger community. Our initiatives around water efficiency, recycling and harvesting have resulted in a cumulative savings of more than 3,000 million liters over the last four years. Water is an apt metaphor for the kind of emerging future that we want to co-create. ... See moreSee less
