'Cheap calories' from processed foods is one of the drivers of an Indian #diabetes epidemic among children in #India with a 2021 study finding that 12.3% of Indian children (10-19 years)  were found to be either diabetic or pre-diabetic. The disease cuts across socio-economic boundaries with the easy availability of junk foods.

Rethinking our streets

Fri, 04/11/2022 - 13:08
Author

Use these resources as talking tools to promote and commit to sustainable streets. Streets facilitate movement, provide access to various facilities and also act as great public spaces - but only if they are designed for it. The recent increase in private motor vehicles and the decrease in the usage of public transportation have made our streets dangerous for large swathes of the public. These resources will help people and policy makers re-imagine our streetscape.
