WELCOME TO THE CLIMATE PROJECT FOUNDATION
OUR CLIMATE IS CHANGING, SO SHOULD WE | TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Human caused climate change is one of the biggest, most pervasive threats in the world and South Asia is amongst the most vulnerable region to impacts of climate change. Now, the onus is on us to act and mitigate the impacts of climate change for a better future for the upcoming generations. We believe that the simplest path to act on climate change is by collective committed actions however small.
We have strategically aligned all our initiatives in order to create awareness, mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change and create leaders of the future who will be taking the baton fighting the cause. Our programmes and initiatives like Green Campus Program, Tree Plantation, Water Conservation, Teachers’ Training Program, all have been developed keeping the same in view.
“Solving the climate crisis is within our grasp,
but we need people like you to stand up and act”

YOUTH FOR EARTH TEAMS CELEBRATE WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY
Youth has the 'Power to Change the Future.' These words were quite apparent as The Climate Project Foundation and Mobius Foundation celebrated World Environment Day with them. More than 150 teams, who registered for this year's edition of the Youth For Earth (Y4E) championship, a flagship contest for youth to find solutions for climate crises at local levels, joined in with great enthusiasm and shared their ideas for the betterment of Mother Earth. This year's theme is also SDG 13, Climate Action, thus, the session served as a perfect start to their on-groundwork with more motivation coming from projects that won in the last year’s
edition. The winners for the Y4E championship will be decided based on the scale of the project, its impacts, and replicability potential. Keep watching this space as well as our social media handles to know more.

COP27: A Choice for Hope
A devastating climate crisis, war, and global energy crises have made the UN's COP 27 climate conference in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt a moment of choice for world leaders this November.
The answer cannot be more of the fossil fuels that got us here.
Not with countries seeing climate change induced floods, rains, and unprecedented heat waves. Not with Europe on fire and Asia and the Americas slammed by deadly storms. Not with rising temperatures fuelling rising injustice across the Earth. It’s no more an emergency, it is a climate catastrophe, if we do not wake up still.
It's time for a new way forward. For world leaders at COP 27 to choose hope over fear and fossil fuels. To accelerate the just transition to clean energy that can stop rising temperatures and build a better world for us all. Now, while we still have time.

CLIMATE ACTION STORIES
8800 KILOMETRES ON BIODIESEL
By CRL Avinash Narayanswamy
Worldwide, biodiesel has slowly but surely gained importance as a green alternative to petroleum diesel & is thus being accepted as an environmentally friendly fuel. However, in spite of closely being related to petroleum diesel in terms of physical & chemical properties, biodiesel continues to be sidelined in many parts of the world & especially in India mainly due to various reasons such as pricing, availability & warranty on the engine & other parts of the car not being covered when switched to biodiesel from petroleum diesel.
