Road Safety - Young drivers lack experience

Author

Young drivers lack experience and are also more likely to take risks when they are with their friends. Young people can respond to peer pressure because of their need for social recognition, and studies show that this can significantly increase the risks they are willing to take. Parents, until convinced that your child is a safe driver, accompany him on as many journeys as possible.

Sustainable Transport - Poor pedestrian infrastructure

Author

Indian cities naturally possess mixed neighbourhoods, allowing people to access essential services by walk. However, poor pedestrian infrastructure, and roads that prioritise motorists has reduced the effectiveness of these neighbourhoods. People resort to driving as it's the safest way to get around. Protecting our 15-minute neighbourhoods must start with prioritising pedestrian safety.

Climate Change - Prevention of deforestation

Author

A recent Science Magazine study suggests that the warming avoided by planting CO2-absorbing forests could be around 15 to 30% less than previously estimated due to feedbacks such as dark trees reflecting less sunlight.

Road Safety - Right of Way of Pedestrians

Author

Motor vehicle riders are not the only road users; the humble pedestrian also has equal rights to it. In fact, at designated places such as pedestrian crossings, they have the right of way. Don't be led to believe that the speed and power a motor vehicle affords you, gives you extra rights over the road. It is as much a pedestrian's or a cyclist's as it is yours. #RoadSafety

Sustainable Transport - Everything is available within walking distance

Author

Here's an illustration of two distinct neighbourhoods: in the current block model, all roads are prioritised for motor vehicles, leaving very little public space for pedestrians and cyclists. The super block concept prioritises pedestrians and restricts the few car owners to the grid's central roadways. As a result, superblocks offer additional recreational places and infrastructure for pedestrians. Remember that by making basic modifications to land use and implementing a few policies, we could transform our neighbourhoods into versatile, safe, and sustainable spaces.

Global Recycling Day 2024

Author

Recycling will work only if we first adhere to the basic tenets of a zero waste economy - reduce and reuse. After we effectively practise these, (and for recycling to really work), we need to segregate our waste, so materials can reach their correct recycling facility. Don't throw away your old T-shirt together with your onion peels! #GlobalRecyclingDay
