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.

According to new research published in the ‘Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences,’ mass animal die-offs are on rise. Mass die-offs are individual events that kill at least a billion animals, wipe out over 90 percent of a population, or destroy 700 million tons worth of animals. Big die-offs can also permanently change food webs. Read more about the study here - goo.gl/4ryYVN Image courtesy – news.nationalgeographic.com ... See moreSee less

As a part of our long term vision to further sustainability education in India, Wipro will be co-hosting and curating with IIMB, Day 2 of this national forum of leading Business Schools from across the country on the topic of 'Symposium on Advancing Sustainability Research and Education'. A part of the Obama Singh 21st Century Knowledge Initiative, the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore and the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School have partnered and committed to this 2015 symposium.This forum aims to bring together academic research, highlight specific case studies, promote larger advocacy and nurture the potentially transformative role that integrating sustainability education can play in management studies. (A line to say it is on 6th June) At Wipro, we have endeavoured to work on educational challenges in schools and colleges and on ecological sustainability issues, both, within our organization and outside. From our work in these areas, we have realised that there is a great need to drive sustainability thinking and action through the learning process and embed sustainability education in school and college curriculum. This was the genesis of WIPRO's Sustainability Education Program- earthian, an annual program, the first edition of which was launched in April 2011. Subsequently earthian and its ecosystem of partners engage with the winning institutes as a part of the Continuous Engagement Program (CEP) to increase the space provided to sustainability education within the campus www.youtube.com/watch?v=AP-eEz0uoM8 ...

Born in the margins of society and passed over by the mainstream, the children of rag pickers, beggars and other vulnerable urban children are forced to follow the same life as their parents - a life devoid of basic human rights & opportunities. The NGO, with support from Wipro on the educational activities, ensures that 320 former street children get comprehensive long-term care across 4 open residential homes in Delhi. These homes are sensitive to the street-children’s naturally nomadic traits. DilSe also has a rich volunteer base, with each contributor making it a point to ensure that the children receive the opportunity to make a better life.
