Dharamshala: Eco-innovator Sonam Wangchuk will highlight the urgency of climate change mitigation on the first day of Dialogue for Our Future Conference as it opens here on April 21. Wangchuk and his team will be leading a zero-emissions expedition from Ladakh to Dharamshala bringing a Himalayan ice block to the Dalai Lama.
The zero-carbon expedition to Khardung La will begin on Tuesday and the ice block will be presented to the Dalai Lama on Friday, April 22 during the international conference. The team of climate activists along with Wangchuk will hike and bicycle to bring the Himalayan ice block from Khardung La. The ice block will be preserved all day long by using natural, zero-carbon insulation innovation methods.
The zero-carbon expedition to Khardung La will begin on Tuesday and the ice block will be presented to the Dalai Lama on Friday, April 22 during the international conference. The idea to bring the block of glacial ice during 'Dialogue for Our Future: A Call to Climate Action' conference is to remind the rapidly melting Himalayan glaciers.
To mark Earth Day and bring attention to the power of individual and collective action in the run-up to COP27, high-level climate change scientists, experts, technologists and activists will discuss the climate emergency in light of the latest IPCC ﬁndings in two and a half-day conference held in Dharamshala.
