STOP MELTING LIFE, SAVE THE HIMALAYAS

Today is The Global Day of Action on Climate Change, and we should all be standing up and taking notice.

With Climate Change at the top of the World agenda, it was of no surprise to find a group of youths in Kathmandu’s Durbar Square promoting the cause. The people of Nepal are proud of their famous Mountain ranges but all could be lost if things don’t start to change quickly. The young students have realised this and are standing up for their beloved natural beauties.

A group of 10 young people had set up their banner and display on one of the temple monuments in Kathmandu’s most prestigious and cultural centre of Durbar Square. In a peaceful and friendly way they were approaching passers-by to ask them to sign post cards which would be sent to the National Newspaper and the messages printed for the Prime Minister to read. The youths were shouting messages, talking to passers-by and playing gentle music. A very polite and unoffending way of raising awareness about an issue close to their heart and of National concern.

A concert is to be held all day today, 12th December 2009, in the Durbar Square in promotion of the efforts to Stop melting the Himalayas. No easy feat admittedly but the first step is awareness. The concert will again spread the word and hopefully get more people interested in the topic. The concert will be held in Basantapur.

With the Nepalese Government paing special attention to this issue in more recent times, even hosting their meeting at Everest Base Camp, changes should start to occur in Nepal. The strong focus and movement has been taken by the Nepalese representatives to the World Summit in Copenhagen and the message from Nepal is clear, they care.

Climate Change Network Nepal has initiated this campaign in order to highlight the plight og the poorest and most vulnerable communities of Nepal. This campaign is intented to raise the profile of an issue affecting the country and taking voices of the poorest and most vulnerable population int he global platform to make a sustainable deal which will benefit them.

The group is urging people of the world to stand up and take notice of this epic campaign and actively take part in making changes in our world. The message from Nepal is ‘STOP MELTING LIFE, SAVE THE HIMALAYAS’. Let’s help to spread the word and really make the change.

    I have read from a research paper how climate change is melting glaziers, thus causing sea level to rise and how this could sink places (including Maldives) located along the shores in the next 100 years. We really have to do something before it’s too late.
