    Indigenous speaker and activist Winona LaDuke says that, "most indigenous ceremonies, if you look to their essence, are about the restoration of balance — they are a reaffirmation of our relationship to creation. That is our intent: to restore, and then to retain balance and honor our part in creation." Why is balance important to sustainability?

    Balance is important to sustainability because it maintains natural resources at check, the environment is protected, the economy thrives, and our quality of life is improved.

    What can lack of access to nutritious food affect a community? How can having access to nutritious food help a community become more resilient?

    Nutritious food is very important for the growth of infants. Children below 5 years of age are very prone to stunting and wasting. Nutritious food is also necessary for pregnant women and lactating mothers. As a whole nutritious food keeps everyone healthy and free from diseases.

    Transportation Research and Consider Switching to a Hybrid or Electric Vehicle
    Reducing (or eliminating) exhaust emissions and improving public health are two benefits of green vehicles. What other motivators inspire you to consider switching to a more fuel-efficient vehicle?

    Anand Tiwari's avatar
    Anand Tiwari 10/23/2020 1:44 PM
    Electric vehicles are going to revolutionize the automobile industry. Apart from reduced emission, I love the fact that they are noiseless and best part is people are adopting it. With Solar energy it can be further improved and can be bring on the lines of complete renewable sources of energy.

    What was your process like for restructuring your trip? How can you avoid more air travel in the future?

    Anand Tiwari's avatar
    Anand Tiwari 10/23/2020 1:37 PM
    I prefer Indian railways most of the time as a mode of transport for shorter distances. I often travel with railways because I enjoy country side view, rivers, forest and trip with family. In future if we get bullet trains which covers major cities, I think air travel will be reduced significantly.

    I know my area well enough, I am aware of the fact that from where I get my water supply, sewage network and how civic authorities are working to keep this place livable. Known above thing is very important, it is also a moral responsibility. In case of any issue, I can reach the right authority to get it fixed.
