GENERATE YOUR OWN
The existing pattern of energy use and demand is now a global concern not only due to its impact on climate but also due to their exhaustive nature. Renewable energy is therefore creating a lot of excitement in terms of meeting energy demands and reducing environmental impact. Alternatives such as bio-fuel, wind, solar, biomass has a great potential for ensuring sustainable growth. However, these alternatives have a huge impact on biodiversity which is a cause of concern for conservation biologists. One of the major reasons for dwindling forest cover is the increasing demand for fuel wood. This has a massive impact on the nation’s forests and biological diversity. Many villages in India still don’t have access to electricity Numerous wind farms have been set up in India however; their environmental impact has never been assessed. Bio-fuels present the best ever opportunity to promote sustainable natural resource management and conservation of underutilized and valuable biodiversity. Biodiversity is a central issue to be considered in the production, distribution and consumption of energy – now and in the future.
Each household can use one solar lantern. A solar charging station will do the main work. The project aims to reduce the local people’s acute dependency on a costly fuel- Kerosene. Solar lanterns can be used as less expensive alternate for light, smokeless, bright & efficient, unlike kerosene. Whereas, it is a boon to the students to continue studies after dark, the elders have started using these lamps for vigilance of agricultural land in night.

CONSERVATION THROUGH TOURISM
Conservation of Community: Support Community based tourism as a mentor through model design, operation support & research. Work with some of the world’s poorest communities to develop conservation and alternative income initiatives to protect biodiversity and livelihoods. The results will help govt & non govt organizations to propose new ideas to benefit different communities everywhere.
Conservation of Environment: Cutting-edge research and an innovative approach to engaging communities in conservation of mangroves. There is a scope in sundarbans. This is how we will attract sustainable finances to benefit local communities and protect mangrove ecosystems throughout Sundarbans. Aims to demonstrate the conservation of biological diversity through the active participation of local communities combined with the use of research techniques.
Conservation of Energy: Energy demand in India is expected to grow at an annual rate of 4.8% over the next 20 years. Most of the energy requirements are currently being satisfied by fossil fuels, whereas the rural population still largely depends on fuel wood for basic energy needs. On one hand rapid economic development and its escalating demand for fossil fuels is creating the need for alternatives. On the other hand, rural populations are still dependant on fire wood as a basic energy source.
TOURISM – FOR PEACE
Peace is a very subjective topic and is not simply the absence of direct violence associated with war. It is also about the elimination of structural violence associated with inequality, injustice and unsustainable development. Outcomes of corporatized forms of tourism, which appears as a constituent of consumer oriented capitalist globalisation, have been found to be detrimental to indigenous cultures, ecology, and the environment as a whole. Alternative forms of tourism and the establishment of long term peace is a major objective. Alternative tourism, as an element of alternative globalisation, has the potential to establish a consensus on bringing about sustainable global development and peace.
