We are proud to announce our inaugural conference uniting India and Pakistan for environmentalism. Since the environment is an issue that both countries face, it can be used to unite them by peacefully collaborating over similar goals. The initiative will be launched by a 6-day conference in Thailand. The conference will occur in summer 2018. It will bring together 20 selected Pakistanis and 20 Indians. The goal of the conference is to create a sustainable organization that f
The ocean is a resource. The ocean is a resource. The ocean is a resource. That is the sentence that I have heard over and over again. It seems to me that people specifically governmental actors only care about the ocean because it is simply a resource that is depleting. However, the ocean is so much more than that. It is the way of life for so many people. It is part of a greater cultural that some of us will never know but that does not diminish the meaning of that culture.
I just finished my fourth day at the UN conference. Over the past four days there has been a lot of talk of the problems that currently persist yet little to no discussion on what should be done. Most of the time there is rhetoric concerning the dire situation we are all in and while this is an important to know I would hope those attending this conference would know many of these facts already.

Fashion is not related to being covered anymore, to have a piece of material wrapped around you in order to hide your body, or to survive to the weather. Fashion is a lifestyle, with thousands of influencers and big brands covering the media, and slowly our lives, it is clear that this simple phenomenon changes our lives little by little. And it is this change that we need to focus on. Is it a good change or a bad change? For us, for our future, our health, and maybe I can go
Today was my second day at the UN Ocean Conference. I am having very mixed feelings because I am very heartened and disheartened at the same time. I feel this way because I have found that the work of many of the NGOs and other grassroots organizations have been very inspiring and uplifting yet the work of the governments while impressive is rifled with compromises and more often than not do not propose solutions. Instead there is only more talk of what is being done in one s
Today was my first day at the UN Ocean conference. Specifically this conference works toward fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14 which looks towards the conservation of the oceans. I found that this conference is very eye opening in the sense that the ocean connects everyone in so many ways. During the opening remarks of the conference one person said it most perfectly in that the ocean knows no countries and knows no boundaries making it the responsibility o
