(5) My Hunsur activity which is already registered with 350.org is gaining strength and friends of saveourearthclub.org are making arrangements for the event on 10/10/10
FUTURE COURSE OF ACTION
(A) All these days, I was using my PPT on Environmental issues for my lectures, workshops etc.,and now my task has been made easy by 350.org. I have downloaded and saved the PPT uploaded by 350.org for use by registered organisers; it is a very useful tool for creating awareness andinterest. My plan between 3-9-10 and 10-9-10 is to make as many copies of this PPT in CDs, meet as many institutions, NGOs as possible, conduct 350 ppm workshop hand them over a copy each of the 350 ppm is to make copies of the PPT sent by 350.org
(B) For the Hunsur Town activity on 10/10/10, my plan is to have an interactive workshop with the farmers growing tobacco (a health hazard), need for protecting soil from degradation, need for developing a mind set for growing alternate crops, their selfishness for better wealth creation is resulting in thousands of people dying a premature death with Cancer directly attributable to tobacco related diseases, how such deaths are denying family problems, loss of human resource and also how millions of smokers are contributing CO2 and Carbon Monoxide that are causing climate change, global warming.
