With over 130 crore population, the per capita land available to every Indian is less than 0.61 acres. We need to grow food, generate goods, power and also allow space for forests, water bodies, mountains and other natural resources in the same 0.61 acres. If all Indians choose to follow American way of development, then we will need more than two worlds. And we know this is not possible. As we strictly control our population we should also strategically choose “Closed loop Production Economy” as India’s choice of Sustainable Development. This means, unlike USA or Australia we should redesign our growth strategy and support Industries that produce goods that satisfy needs of Indians while keeping their foot print low.
To help India grow sustainably, Values Foundation initiated “Mission – Sustainable India”. As a part of this mission, Values Foundation moderates various activities in association with organizations sharing common interests.
