Threat of Climate Change in India
Proposed Solar zero carbon Fossil Fuel free villages
At present the world’s attention is on this terrible mess in the Ukraine, a catastrophe that will be resolved but at a terrible cost to many innocent people.
This will take some time and thankfully the whole world is focusing on bringing this to a peaceful conclusion. But, we must not let or our focus off the other terrible threat to humanity i.e. The Climate Change which is also a terrible threat to the stability of the World.
The COP26 meeting in Glasgow highlighted many issues that needed to be addressed before 2030 but not later than 2050 to this end Interlock is building at its Shanti Van site, as part our post COVID-19 programme, a solar zero carbon village to showcase what can be done to reduce dependency on fossil fuels in off- grid communities in rural India.
Your help is asked for in ideas, fund raising, marketing, Introduction to virtual participation and E volunteering, new entrepreneurs to help create new businesses where people and planet come before development and profit.
The creation of labour intensive employment and livelihoods for families effected by COVID is of the uttermost priority, the building and workshops the solar power generator in unit for the introduction of solar/electric vehicles etc. will provide many jobs immediately.
INTERLOCK CHARITABLE TRUST NEED TO SET UP LABOUR INTENSIVE UNITS FOR THE MAKING OF EARTH BLOCKS AND RIVER SAND CONCRETE BLOCKS WHICH WOULD PROVIDE EMPLOYMENT TO 20 TO 30 PEOPLE. THESE BLOCKS WILL BE USED FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE SOLAR CHARGING STATIONS AND WORKSHOPS. THE CHARITY NEEDS A DUAL-USE ELECTRIC VEHICLE TO BE USED ON-SITE AND AS A DEMONSTRATION VEHICLE. COST OF LABOUR FOR 20 TO 30 WOULD BE APPROXIMATELY £18,600 FOR ONE YEAR AND THE COST OF THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE WOULD BE £5,000.
THE CHARITY ALSO NEEDS HELP SETTING UP A GLOBAL NETWORK (INDIAN DIASPORA) OF PEOPLE WHO CAN VISIT THE VILLAGES VIRTUALLY AND HELP PROVIDE THE ANSWERS IT’S SEEKING.
