Young Bollywood star Bhumi Pednekar has always been a socially conscious citizen and she has started a much-lauded pan India advocacy campaign - Climate Warrior, to raise awareness on Environmental Conservation and Climate Change. Climate Warrior is a concerted social media initiative that Bhumi spearheads to highlight the incredible work done by tireless environmental activists and citizen groups across India. She uses her highly engaged social media following to voice concerns about the rapidly changing climatic conditions in the nation. On World Energy Conservation Day, Bhumi releases her maiden radio show that focusses to raise awareness across India on the need for sustainability.
Bhumi says, “Energy conservation is at the centre-stage of climate protection conversation that is happening across the world. Climate Warrior has always tried to focus on such issues that need urgent attention and through my new campaign, which kickstarts today, I want to reach out to as many people as possible, especially the youth, because they are our best hope to fight this global crisis.”
She adds, “All of us need to come together as a community and work towards energy conservation which will positively help in tackling climate change that is spiralling out of control. With my new show, my only aim is to be get people’s attention on this critical issue and hopefully look at providing them with alternate solutions that are simple, environmentally friendly and sustainable. This is the only way forward for us if we want to save the planet.”
