Billions of tiny actions that can make a major change…
Earth Day is THE day in the year, when one should take time to reflect on one’s capacity at reversing adverse effects of one’s liability on our planet’s health.

This has been 2 weeks since I got onboard the Mauritian team working towards the UN Conference Rio+20 initiative. What a rich, fruitful fortnight this has been! As a professional and an individual it has been very much inspiring.
For me, that was the perfect timing to meet with world class individuals and professionals, to start working on communication concepts that would boost the Mauritius Ile Durable (MID) Concept amidst the Global effort to change attitudes towards the environmental problems plaguing our planet.
I would suggest you join the move too. (by Clicking on the links provided at the end of the article). It is your world, your planet and your future after all ! Read More
