Schools celebrate WED with the Mamanuca Environment Society

The Mamanuca Environment Society will be marking World Environment Day in five schools in the Nadi District of Fiji, with a focus on recycling. As part of an art competition, students will present their recycling art projects, including items such as bottle caps, musical instruments, pen holders, piggy banks, and recycled bags.

The day’s activities are designed to inspire students to turn waste into treasure! Students and teachers will also be making pledges - including tree pledges, turtle pledges and the better bag challenge pledge. Students will wrap up the day with a clean-up, a composting activity, and tree planting within the school grounds.

The Mamanuca Environment Society is committed to protecting the marine and terrestrial environment of the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji in partnership with the local community and stakeholders. The Society conducts environmental awareness programs, targeting behavioral change through educational awareness, and promotes sustainable tourism.

The Commonwealth Youth Climate Change Network (CYCN) which is a youth-led network and aim to ensure young people understand their role in addressing climate change issues and participate to influence policy through effective, innovative and collective action across the Commonwealth is organising a Commonwealth Youth Expert Group Meeting (EGM) on Climate Change, with support from the Youth Division of the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Commonwealth Youth Council. The meeting will be convened from 9-11 June 2015 and will take place in Marlborough House, Commonwealth Secretariat, in London, UK, in the context of the World Environment Day 2015 and in the lead up to the UN Climate Change Conference 2015 scheduled in Paris, end of this year. The Youth EGM on Climate Change will bring together a group of key young climate change experts and practitioners from across the Commonwealth to discuss, formulate and agree on behalf of their peers key recommendations for a post-2015 global climate change agreement. At this meeting delegates will also identify avenues for these recommendations to be included in the pledges of Commonwealth member states in the lead up to the COP21. The meeting will also provide the opportunity to achieve certain secondary objectives, such as facilitate experiences and skills sharing amongst participants within a learning goal, and foster collaboration between the CYCN and the participants’ organisations and networks in order to position the CYCN as a relevant youth-led initiative across the Commonwealth. About fifteen Youth Experts on climate change will take part in the meeting, representing various Commonwealth nations and playing an active role within their active organisation or network. They will be assisted in their task by invited Senior Experts on climate change and sustainable development, representing relevant institutions such the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre, UNESCO, the University of West Indies, the Commonwealth Secretariat, the Commonwealth Disaster Management Agency, the Prince of Wales’ International Sustainability Unit (ISU), etc. These Senior Experts will advise their youth colleagues in developing a set of clear recommendations for a post-2015 climate change agreement (with a youth lens) to be submitted to Commonwealth member states and other decision makers in the lead up to COP21, and used as advocacy arguments to ensure young people’s concerns and expertise is included in COP21 pledges and submissions.

Climate change signs are already evident with heat wave deaths in India crossing 2000. Forbes MAR 30, 2015 @ 11:43 PM 4,283 VIEWS. Research Confirms That Carbon Dioxide Led To Higher Temperatures In The Past. http://www.forbes.com/…/research-confirms-that-carbon-diox…/ GROW CAM PLANTS LIKE AGAVE AND OPUNTIA TO REDUCE HIGH TEMPERATURES. It is a tragedy hundreds of deaths took place even in temperatures below 45 degrees Celsius. There were places in Andhra Pradesh like Rentachintala which experience high temperatures in summer. In Rajasthan to face hot temperatures people use neem leaves on head. Common sense tells us that CAM plants act as Carbon Sink. Crassulacean acid metabolism, also known as CAM photosynthesis, is a carbon fixation pathway that evolved in some plants as an adaptation to arid conditions. In a plant using full CAM, the stomata in the leaves remain shut during the day to reduce evapotranspiration, but open at night to collect carbon dioxide (CO2). The CO2 is stored as the four-carbon acid malate in vacuoles at night, and then in the daytime, the malate is transported to chloroplasts where it is converted back to CO2, which is then used during photosynthesis. The pre-collected CO2 is concentrated around the enzyme RuBisCO, increasing photosynthetic efficiency. That is why they occur naturally in desert regions. Thanks to the wonders of nature we have care free growth, regenerative CAM plants like Agave and Opuntia which acts as Carbon Sink. Traditionally Agave(Small size) and Opuntia(Small sizes) are placed in front of the compound in pots. Also they are tied on the sunshade before entrance. To give it more religious importance they are claimed to dispel DISHTI (Bad glances from eyes.) There is more science in this. Both are CAM plants and they act as Carbon Sink. Carbion Dioxide emission has a direct influence of rise in temperatures. How is it that heat waves are claiming hundreds of lives even at 43 degrees Celsius which is common in Andhra Pradesh? https://www.scribd.com/doc/267068397/CAM-Plants-to-Control-High-Temperatures-as-Carbon-Sink

A workshop on Consume with Care would be organized by our NGO Vivekananda Institute of Environment & Management, Kolkata (VIEM) with Belur Sramajibi Swasthya Prakalpa Samity (Organization of Workmen for Health Welfare situated at Belur, Calcutta) in the Hospital of the later organization. The workshop would include lecture and sharing hand on experience by Scientists & Technologists of Vivekananda Institute of Environment & Management, Kolkata (VIEM) on Consume with Care. Practical demonstration on the methodologies to be adopted for achieving this concept would also be included. The research conducted in our institute (VIEM) has revealed that technologically advanced methodologies would not only suffice to achieve the desired goal as more technologically advanced methodologies often leads more energy intensive processes thereby increasing carbon foot print. The traditional and natural are required to be nurtured. These would be taught by the experts in the workshop.
