    AHIMSA AND THE ENVIRONMENT: PROTECTING THE HIMALAYAN REGION

    Ahimsa (non-violence) is critical to restoring our Earth and dignifying all living beings. Through public policy, corporate responsibility and personal lifestyle choices, it is imperative that we reduce harm to the environment in every possible way. This event seeks to promote and educate society on non-violence as a practical means of achieving our climate objectives whilst directing us towards a kinder, symbiotic relationship with nature.

    Last year, Hanuman Dass and the GD team were joined by Alok Sharma (COP President), Maneka Gandhi, Sadhguru, and many other esteemed speakers, who delivered messages of reason and hope for non-violence, as well as the practical application of non-violence in addressing the climate crisis, within the context of COP26.

    This year, alongside COP27, our event will focus on how we can protect the Himalayan Region, which indirectly provides the security of more than 2 billion people. 

    The Himalayas face a number of serious conditions that threaten the region’s environment, biodiversity and human prosperity. The most important of these are: climate change, habitat loss, and species extinction. As a result of the damage that has already occurred, less than 25% of the natural habitat of the Eastern Himalayas remains intact, and an estimated 163 native species are endangered.

    The Himalayas are one of the most vulnerable regions to climate change in the world, and its effects are rapidly emerging. The situation is only expected to get worse in the coming years with serious implications for food, water and energy, as well as for biodiversity and species extinction, not just in the Himalayas, but across Asia and throughout the world.

    To take just the problem of water, the Himalayan glaciers provide much of the water of Asia and act as the source to many of the world’s greatest rivers: the Yangtze, the Irrawaddy, and the Ganges, the Indus, and the Mekong. The water security of more than 1 billion people depends directly on the Himalayas, with another billion indirectly, and more than 500 million in South Asia and 450 million in China relying near-solely on the health of this sensitive region.

    Yet, this is to only consider the water implications. There is also the animal cruelty of poaching, the destruction of the habitat, and the effect of the rising temperatures on the plant, animal life, and the local communities. This is why we must come together now to raise awareness on how to stop and reverse these calamitous results, whilst we still can.
