hello welcome to equally near sustainability magazine where we introduce you to change me people like you and i who are finding solutions to some of the most pressing problems in the world to be. coming to us from who might india. this week let's look at how an organization one bike is changing people's perception of the city's street dogs. when the asians are doing to reduce their carbon footprint. and how an art project is making or statement on back explanation and classic change. what was for story that has a brutal beginning. a happy ending in the eighty's in the early ninety's or four
hundred thousand stray dogs of mumbai were caught and killed most didn't mean. local n.g.o.s have fought hard to me this practice never brought back. which is at the forefront of this fight along the road ahead. of. when a blogger and us walks on the streets of the city street dogs unfeelingly greet him with a strong sense of recognition. many times to the surprise of passers by. as a kid i used to see dogs being taken over the you know dogs that were in on neighborhood
dogs that we knew was on me or blackie and. used to pick up and kill there. really are lives that i mean why should this be done when the dolphin that there. was something. for twenty two years understand this injury the welfare of stray dogs have been looking towards the alternative. the nothing is happening. nothing happening here than i am fiction on so if the sunday one of the many routines the following live just leave is to provide first aid to about twenty dogs in the forty area of south mumbai. you know. earlier the month to bilk operation was to kill them because they thought that was the only way it could bring down rabies or the stray dog population. for me of this twenty two year old johnny it's
a long term relationship and you know every time a dog passes over your part of me you know dice. the. street dogs in mumbai who typically belong to the indigenous advantage of history. even considered a nuisance and a treat because the potential carriers of the fighters are. in the early ninety's it was organizations like ours is that for target for their right to be treated humanely. that dog used to be kept for three days by the uncivil cooperation in the dog pound and if nobody claimed them those two electrocuted them so that we function is
abused to go and rescue these dogs. the only group. you can win the uncivil competition with figures of how these vets have not gone down the speed dog population and not gone down that there does. an alternative it was a scientific humane method of controlling the adult population which is what we call an animal birth control. what we call sterilization osprey and you know.
it wasn't until two thousand one that deceptive foods under the prevention of cruelty to animals act we did mandatory for lucre governments to steady my street. but the lack of infrastructure in funds has meant that it has fallen newborn interviews which are often financed through missions and grants to control it means being the students in mumbai my wife was. was. really. nasty as is a back seat it's close to three hundred dogs of. war. and they've been feeding
what this means is that they don't feel it was trained dogs and few more facts and soothe and so that will prevent it from getting any maggots which is almost no and we've been feeding them for the last. five weeks and i think want to recall three dogs actually not three part of the world health organization or you call them. pets so they are looked after by somebody on the street the policeman. lives on the street you know so they are the ones who look after them give them names. you don't. tell god to. be on that robert yeah i don't want con cares for me in such fine tuning. ship shape. on one of the city's streets called. she says the house
but there's a big response of it. all started then we wouldn't stop it we couldn't stop it so. said yes to it. being. given them. more than that maybe. they would buy good. stead. so this thing that. if these dogs are not harmful to them they are. because they are not so they realize that this is the best are we that you know the street dogs and humans can
live live in harmony. now experts see that stray dogs try the indian cities because it's become easier to find food it looks like it's not twenty different in germany i don't except it's white boards that wandered into the city's limits in off well back into the white german capital now has a commissioner for wild animals and his primary job is to deescalate conflict between humans and the cities and growing up in my life. a wild boar strolling through berlin. is a vice we're not deep in the forest you know large park where thousands of people are out and about they don't appear to be frightened of us so. still the boers keep their distance juki laughed is the city's point man for wild animals people often
call them when they see a boar in the garden or a reckon on the roof you know is where the various species like to hang out locals out for a walk tend to take the company in their stride. while the poor have been here for ages since i was a kid. when he doesn't know how to deal with them they're coming towards me i walk towards them and they scatter. bundle and over to where i live in the suburbs where used to them i used to run with the boys on my way home now but they still make me a bit nervous. so there are probably between two and four thousand and berlin. several other species also feel right at home in the city. these are species that have got used to us and have adapted that's why this is there are various reasons first the physical environment in the country intensive farming deprives them of their habitat or here they can reproduce with abandon.
second in the city they are hunters. on the other side of berlin and the tear practising to lay on battle is looking for a hedgehog nests he's a biologist at the likeness institute for a zoo and wildlife research. and going to home. when. jokes made use of this tree trunk but he's not here at least. not in the third nest. hedgehogs go out at night and sleep all day but as we've just seen not always in the same place. and there are more hedgehogs in cities than in the country that's because i gardens and parks offer great natural habitats. the project he's working on is about how hedgehogs bats wars
record moons and other wild animals live in cities. not the ones in zuma enclosures but those living free. large it's informed of our aims is to inform the public about the animals that might be living in their gardens and to encourage them to leave the creatures a little space and leave gaps in their fences so animals can come and go. that we can that's important if certain species are to survive what many people don't realize is that because we've deprived so many species of their natural habitats their numbers are declining. it's. back to the park where we met the wild boar in the middle there's a large lake and it's not just humans who like to chill on it shores. bores aren't known to be keen swimmers but they are if you go to consumers of
crisps and cookies. run veco this is i like and love i really how come. have a look and as i says not traditional it is really interesting to see the animals in the city it always happens always great to be able to show them to my son but we all know about the downside to that to your kids i breed fast they roam in the garbage and they can spread disease. on the floor and it was her idea also works with the public that's really important because people need to do their part to enable the peaceful coexistence of humans and animals in the big city all of this africa is was even done in africa other animals say what hogs or elephants move into towns and villages and cause a commotion. australia has similar problems of he said it will be initial we're going gauge with both the supporters on the critics and having animals in our midst
and we have to find a way to live with animals it can't be right to simply fight them off but many cities have blossomed into hubs of biodiversity it's often in the urban jungle that wild animals find what they need to survive and even to thrive. let's shift focus to one of the most urgent problems of the twenty first century india stompin emissions are still very low at one point eight percent compared to the us a sixteen point eight on the bus and a most of its energy needs are still next by poole the dirtiest of fossil fuels will be needed in this pump quite competent as in the world and the plan to double the koolau by twenty twenty is having a disastrous impact on the environment and on people reporter travel to jodi are in the eastern part of the country the heart of india's school belt. saw that the mother who is seventy years old. she's got interests in the coal mines of tokyo.
the battleship is just nine. to begin work at dawn every day it's fraught with dangers the cold has to be hacked out of explosives. once shipped them are badly injured himself while working. in the open pit is one hundred fifty meters deep. suffer three makes four to five crips each day. just to watch out for the police who chase them away and confiscate the code. name i don't have a choice i have to do this work my parents are illiterate they've worked as laborers all their lives they can't do anything about. what's happening so i try to help them but only money i really don't like the work my heart does and
then they get it a few hours of work which is the equivalent of three euros that's more than what people earn here as david rose of some thirty thousand people workers called scavengers. but they pay a heavy price burning rockwall releases toxic smoke and gases causing widespread as well and respiratory illnesses in the area. gerri are since the top one of the world's largest coal reserves. the try again to open pits and deep mines here account for a quarter of india's coal production. but the corn is also on fire. dozens of places below the ground some have been smoldering for more than one hundred years when underground mining first began most fires ignite spontaneously one minute rules in the expose called heat up. continued mining at the surface has
opened up cracks that feed oxygen to the planes. the resulting toxic emissions have devastated the environment. the coal fires destroyed houses and triggered landslides. that has been campaigning for the rights of illegal cold workers like the tree of the rubble he says india is paying a huge human cost in its dash because. this government just doesn't want it so right now paul is very important it is very important for the development of massive cities surely the world out there but with. the cost of these people. who've amount of human beings who are going to be deprived of water when there's some of the other the king or the living that will also go. over trees determined to find a way out of the coal mines. scavenging also helps pay for college
she goes there every day after work. to ensure her dreams of getting a good job. don't go up in smoke. not well done if sources of energy are definitely to me especially in a country with high energy consumption and see despair pollution been sent to us now the government is keen to meet in the country and its economy war environment be solid but first it needs to convince consumers and it's hoping a new. report that is headed for the capital city of kuala lumpur to find out. if only it with this quick and easy to get around malaysia's capital city. in reality rush hour looks more like this c o two emissions produced by traffic at one of malaysia's biggest climate killers but that's all set to change.
for example with this electric scooter it was developed by the malaysian company. but. they're especially proud of the high performance batteries they designed themselves . with. the power direct drive. the batteries that we use. this is one of the technology breakthroughs that we have achieved so far not only campari in malaysia i would say that can bring to the wall. the malaysian government supports companies that bring eco friendly products on the market like a clean my. the financial aid and tax breaks are supposed to help malaysia become a green a country. but over the past three and a half years only four hundred scooters have left the factory that's around three
thousand seven hundred euros they cost twice as much as conventional models. but i will be says more though right now is two of the go forty feet because the most heavily used two wheelers right now the biggest is kentucky fried chicken can't see using it for home deliveries police been battling using the bites and we also have a local council and forstmann team going a robot calling the routes we have not. a surprise or need for the customers they're also already in use at the malaysian ministry of energy where manufacturers of eco friendly products can apply for support from the environmental incentive scheme it's being implemented by malaysia green technology corp with support from the g i's that germany's international cooperation and development agency more than eight hundred fifty different products and services have already been accepted they carry
a special label green malaysia but private consumers are still hesitant when you go to the market for example they're looking at how much this costs in comparison of course so there's still a challenge there. unless we have economies of scale we can produce green products that skew then we can reduce the cost. more and more companies want to jump on the eco bandwagon. but first the products are put through their paces for example here at the serum certificate in isolation in kuala lumpur. serum award. it's own eco label which companies can use to apply for the my he john scheme. would list detergent meet the standards. of the company things like the sport that is biodegradable so we have been to test on the bio degradable deep but then show according to get movies it's magic. the sample is mixed with
a bacterial culture. if the sample hasn't dissolved within twenty eight days the detergent twenty granted the label. leaflet . the criteria that have to be fulfilled for the eco label a tailored to conditions in malaysia. not only with respect to health and environmental sustainability but also with respect to economic feasibility. different. standard of living so that it has to because he didn't because he said that. that work on three may not be. so you have to look into the economy situation of the country and. read the. book. the next step is to establish uniform ecological standards by region. the
german development agency is also supporting malaysia's neighboring countries indonesia thailand and the philippines. because the more people buy eco friendly products the better it is for the environment. now. and most times on an individual level often watch desperation is to put on a mask and get on with life but a collective opt for change twenty one and its moscow book project is getting people from around the world to use their mosques to make a bore statement and demand for change. indian cities are among the most polluted in the world poisonous smog can last for days on and sometimes the sky itself a yellow even breathing is painful. activists in jelly are using
