solar punch : road trip

solar punch and Solar CITIES join the
climate solutions road trip: visions of india project!

Besides working hard to use the festival approach to sustainable development (using music and presentations to make renewable energy fun and accessible and foster dialog) Solar CITIES hopes to   learn how to produce household biogas from urban waste and take these techniques, perfected by ARTI in India, back to the Zabaleen community in Cairo for phase II of our mission.

"we will be traveling from the southernmost tip of the country, (kanyakumari), to the north, (delhi), styling and profiling in solar-charged electric cars from indian car maker reva.

the main aim of this tour is to spotlight spectacular and practical solutions to the current climate crisis. the youth of india, representing a majority of the country’s 1,129,800,000 individuals, will be engaged in a series of concerts, environmental projects and programs, with lectures and break out sessions by tour leaders caroline howe, kartikeyah singh and alexis ringwald"
"how does a solar-powered activism band fit? -------------------------------
d’uh - solar punch is on board to provide the musical draw as well as amplify our overlapping messages and concerns: we have the tools and technology to move past current trends in carbon consumption/emissions - we can help our friends, neighbors and nemesis see the value in finding their own solutions, sharing what’s learned and elevating us all towards a clean, green, sustainable NOW!"
