National Drought Art Campaign

The effects of urbanization and climate change are converging in dangerous ways. Cities are major contributors to climate change: although they cover less than 2 per cent of the earth’s surface, cities consume 78 per cent of the world’s energy and produce more than 60% of all carbon dioxide and significant amounts of other greenhouse gas emissions, mainly through energy generation, vehicles, industry, and biomass use.

At the same time, cities and towns are heavily vulnerable to climate change. Hundreds of millions of people in urban areas across the world will be affected by rising sea levels, increased precipitation, inland floods, more frequent and stronger cyclones and storms, and periods of more extreme heat and cold. In fact, many major coastal cities with populations of more than 10 million people are already under threat. Climate change may also negatively impact infrastructure and worsen access to basic urban services and quality of life in cities.

However the major impact of the Climate Change is found in Rural India. This year in India more 330 million people are affected with Drought. It might be shocking but a hard truth that every half an hour an Indian Farmer Commits Suicide. More than 3,00,000 farmers have committed suicide in India in last 20 years. This is the high time to rethink and find solution to the rising threat.

Green Society Forum believes Artists are the most sensitive citizens and have always played a vital role in transforming societies. Considering the same Green Society Forum has initiated National Drought Art Campaign.
