Arvind Mishra will travel 10,000 km across the country to launch his C-Negative movement, which will help people and organizations take responsibility for their carbon footprint and reduce it drastically. Is climate change the question of my life? Arvind Mishra says darkly explaining the reason for his ambitious cycling campaign in Trans India. During this long journey of six months of resistance, he intends to connect almost 300 universities, companies, communities and people through his “travel and talk” campaign. The 28-year-old mechanical engineer leaves Graphic Era University as an adjunct professor to devote his time and energy to the emerging problem we face, but unlike other campaigns, climate literacy, Mishra offers a solution that anticipates awareness. p> Currently, in partnership with Revive Climate, an NGO that was created with this campaign as its central idea, Arvind has developed an application called C-Negative that not only evaluates your carbon footprint but also provides solutions to reduce, compensate or neutralize Your C-negative movement will be the culmination of this cycling campaign that is scheduled to begin in February, and is currently being debated. environmental responsibilities and the basic ethics that should guide us, but we can ask ourselves: when and how a teacher whose life not so long ago revolved around concepts such as computational techniques and analysis by means of finite elements develop their sense of social responsibility ? Planting a C-Negative tree at the Rayat Bahra Engineering Institute A sense of responsibility is rarely packaged and delivered to your door Arvind takes me to the year 2010, when a catastrophic accident almost took away his mobility and, as a result, his mental health. He was left with degenerated discs L4 and L5, a damaged thecal sac (the sheath that protects the spinal cord) and unbearable pain. Remember, I remember those three months of complete agitation and the predictions of the partial paralysis doctor. I was wondering, “Why is this happening to me?” I had so many negative impulses and could see my immediate plans breaking in front of my eyes. “This accident required a complete response, so he gave up his job and returned home to recover, as a mechanical engineer, he started looking for his own” mechanical “disability. One thing led to another and soon, he has The more he read, he was more aware of how unhealthy and healthier our health is. This knowledge quickly spread to other habits that so often lead to lifestyles that deplete our resources. In what can only be considered an incredibly slow, confusing and difficult, Arvind tends to work towards a faulty system and make people know it more, I know that when we investigate and launch a product, we do not make a large analysis of its long-term effect, “he explains. the lack of critical thinking and plan. the need for responsible technology. Although he sees himself as a kind of technological pessimist, he insists that the problem is not with the technology itself, but with us, the people. We need a controlled way to use technology. We unnecessarily complicate our lives with him. / P >>>> Having grown up in a humble setting in a small village near Kanpur, Arvind clearly saw the contrast between his early life in a mud house and the home business in Singapore and France. I saw a life so durable, simple and minimalist. In a way, I’m happier when I go back to the village. In the forum AIESEC Youth Speak, Dehradun The bicycle trip through Trans India It took Arvind four years to to be able to resume after the accident, and only then did he take it seriously and with passion. Recently he cycled from Gurgaon to Dehradun “a distance of almost 300 km” in 24 hours. Pressing its limits of resistance seems to be a way of life for Arvind who, in 2014, joined Guinness World Records for the longest conference in history, which lasted 139 hours, 42 minutes and 49 seconds, without interruption. While explaining this trip, however, he quickly pointed out that the campaign was less about travel and resistance than about discussions and principles. I established some principles for me. Eaststrictly necesary. Eager to practice what he preaches, he has made sure that the entire trip is done with solar energy. A kit provided by Voltech Systems will power your laptop, camera and phone, contributing to carbon emissions. The journey begins in Delhi, passing through cities such as Jaipur and Ahmedabad before continuing to the west coast, and then through Kanyakumari east coast through West Bengal, Northeast, culminating in Kashmir. 200 lectures are expected at major universities such as IIT-Kanpur, IIM-Ahmedabad, Bangalore-TIFR, IIT -Guwahati and many corporate houses. However, its main objective is to connect with village communities, individuals and rural groups or panchayats to raise awareness of the need for resilient societies in rapidly changing climatic conditions. says Ramandeep Sidhu, CEO of Aerosphere and one of the many who support the Arvindare cause. REX Forum was awarded Karamveer Chakra for its efforts in climate literacy in partnership with the United Nations and ICONGO (International Confederation of NGOs The C-negative movement and the Negative letter Since you insist that the most important thing is your C-negative application and not the trip itself, I go back, trying to understand how this application really works. ? assures me that this free application will help you calculate your carbon footprint per day and on the basis that it suggests how to reduce your carbon emissions, how to compensate for this can not be reduced, neutralized and how things can not be avoid everything. ?? a fiery and prepared cyclist For example, plant a tree in your local community for every three flights you take, adds Ramandeep The application was developed on the basis of a holistic formulation that includes quantification and nature of eating habits, transportation, domestic energy consumption, etc. The calculator uses emission factors that take into account all the greenhouse gases (CO2, N2O, methane, etc.) emitted by the activities, with the results shown in metric tons equivalent units of CO2 (CO2e). Follow the standard formulation procedures established by environmental agencies, such as the World Resources Institute (WRI), the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol, the certification of the Agency’s vehicles (United Kingdom). Kingdom) and the EPA. So, what is the C-negative statute, I ask. Is a scheme systematically designed with the help of the Policy Research Center, ?? he explains. These are essentially viable alternatives that people can use to reduce their carbon footprint. It is very difficult to ask people to leave their comfort zone. Very difficult,?? he emphasizes. This generation (born in an era of convenience based on technology) will not understand very easily. This is the reason why the solutions we propose must be achievable. The Charter is designed specifically for individuals and organizations. When someone subscribes and ratifies the C-negative Letter, he will accept a paradigm shift in his consumption of energy and resources. This is very similar to an audit, except that it will be self-imposed. The advantage here is that those who exercise will fully participate in the process, which will make them more aware of their actions, and make “conscious” people, after all, the central objective of this campaign.
