Art has the power to change the world and the world seems to be in dire need of a change, given the utter chaos surrounding us. Even during this pandemic, art seems to be the strongest connecting glue across the world. Hence, this Environment Day, Hilldaari has chosen art to drive home a very important message. Written by Mayank Tandon and performed by Anamika Joshi, this poem in the video urges people to reimagine the world and recalibrate their actions to ignite hope for a newer and a healed world of their dreams.
Whether it’s the pandemic or the unpredictable storms, nature seems to be asking us to pay the price for the destruction caused by people amongst us. But all the efforts and all the plans to mitigate this seem to be falling short given the enormity of the challenges around us. With this video, Hilldaari is recalling the most powerful change weapons that everyone is blessed with i.e. imagination and empathy. Our initiative believes in the power of collective change and wants to remind people that on this environment day, they too can become a part of the change they wish to see in the world.
Hilldaari is glad to share the poetry video with all of you. We hope that with your support and encouragement we can spread the message of a new and better world far and wide.
Hilldaari is an initiative by Nestlé India to improve waste management in hill stations of our country. It is collectively implemented by Stree Mukti Sanghatana and Recity Network. The movement is currently operational in Mussoorie, Dalhousie, and Nainital, and has successfully facilitated the diversion of 4668 MT of waste from landfills and conducted capacity building of urban Local Bodies to achieve sustainability.
The movement is also working closely to improve the life chances of 284 waste professionals across these locations. This is being done by systematically transforming the waste value chain, and ensuring that multiple stakeholders within the cities participate in the process.
