India is on the 350 action map!
In the last few months a new youth movement has begun to take form in India: the Indian Youth Climate Network. You can read more about their rapidly growing network at their new blog: www.whatswiththeclimate.org.
Already, in their earliest stages, they’re charging ahead with action. This 350 action photo was taken at the Teen Murti Bhavan, the home of India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, and it’s just the beginning of the group’s ambitions to set India on course to helping the world reach 350 ppm. The action was part of a Delhi Youth Summit outlining first steps for how Indian youth are going to lead a new movement for action on climate change. There are also plans for a national youth climate summit in Hyderabad later this summer. Indian youth are coming together in an incredible new way, and I think it’s safe to say we’ll be hearing more from them in the weeks and months to come.
