Local Need, Meet Locally

Anil P Joshi

The green activist and Padma Bhushan awardee Dr. Anil P Joshi will deliberate on our channel.

 

Come every World Environment Day on June 5 and we remember Earth and Environment. We say good words, paint pretty pictures, do some quiz and think perhaps it is engagement enough with the “good and nice” idea called Environment. But here is a veteran Environmentalist who sternly reminds us that it is not sufficient to think and act superficially. Dr. Anil Prakash Joshi, the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan awardee Botanist turned green activist who left his safe and stable job to actually engage with the cause and act towards reviving the ailing ecology of the Himalayan States, raised his voice to make us realize that ecology is economy.


“It is high time that along with Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which indicates economic health, the country and the states collected data on forests, water sources, quality of air and soil and measured the GEP (Gross Environmental Product) to know the health of our ecosystem,” said Dr Joshi. He asked if Mumbai can be the business capital of India, Delhi the national capital, then why Himalayan states can’t be the ecological capital of India!


We think he is the man of the moment to listen from about his thoughtful research of how to have economic assessment of the ecological services we extract without care and how we can actually take actions to save the ecology.


All are cordially invited in the Live session on our YouTube channel RSCPCalicut.virtual at 2.00 PM on the 3rd June, 2020. It is our precursor to the World Environment Day.
