Air, Water, Food, ecosystem, energy are a highly important element of the environment that provides the necessary support to livelihood. Lately, due to rapid and haphazard urbanization, natural resources are depleting in a similar pattern. It has resulted in our ecosystem severely affected, which also includes the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink, the energy we use, and our overall existence. In addition to that besides the environment, it has disrupted the system we have for ourselves, the community, and the government.
It would be best if we humans can celebrate Environment Week by redefining our everyday habits toward a sustainable lifestyle. With this approach taking people on different walks of life in a journey of environmental sustainability through seven themes in seven days.

7 Days, 7 Activities
Speakers - Live Program Everyday at 5:30pm
Each day, at 5:30pm, we are gathering everyone in a zoom webinar to discuss on the themes based on the respective days.
Firstly, we gathered government and non-government agencies at local level to acquire knowledge about the place and people. We liaised and coordinated with PCU, hematic Specialists, DPCU, District Climate Change & Spatial Unit, Social Mobilization SP-ASHA to ensure quality delivery of enhanced LAPA preparation worked with these local parties which was very beneficial for us as they helped us recognize and identify the places. With the help of some ideas put down into sketches,we prepared a five day plan to map the entire area .
During the survey, We used hand held devices such as smartphone, 360 camera to collect different businesses, taps, earthquake affected areas (name , description, images) of kavra district. We also used GIS devices along with our mobile phones to accurately identify the latitude and longitude of the places.
Later, the data is gathered and organized and divided into two parts : private and public data. Public data refers to the businesses around that area such as shops, restaurants, clothing store, medical shop and so on. Private data refers to number of houses , earthquake prone areas, landslide prone areas, watershed and so on. The public data are pushed to the Google Maps and OpenStreetMap and remaining private data are embedded into Google Mymaps .
Stories are our thing. We live for it. We strive for it. We reach out to different people, places and culture to find unique, hidden stories and bring it out to the world.
We collected interesting stories from different areas of kavra. The stories consist of the experience of people who have been living there whole life. They shared what they did, how the daily life is going on and what changes they have seen from the past. They shared their experience on how the grazing of animals around that area has changed over the years. Likewise, we interviewed people whose lives has been affected by landslide . They provided us some reasons behind the landslide and what could be done to prevent it.

After being unable to get fish for their livelihood, the villagers are making arrangements to go to Trishuli, Marsyangdi, Kali Gandaki and Budhi Gandaki in search of gold.
Although this sounds like a normal happening. This is not something very normal. Although rich in greenery and natural beauty we have been careless to preserve our natural resources and have neglected ourselves being concerned of climate change. The fishes in Madi river have not vanished just for no reason. There are various reasons attached to it. The practice of fishing using electricity, the tendency of throwing industrial and human waste has affected the fishes living there and the organisms that fish depend on to survive to make survival possible for many Karna Bahadur Botes of this area. It is clearly evident that the fishes are vanishing from this region due to unleashed fishing, i.e. no barrier in the amount of fishing that can be done as there is no authority to monitor it. This is an alarm to prevent fishes being an extinct species from other regions to. So it is time for everyone to be alert and preserve the natural resources upon which many lives are still dependent on.
This documentary is on the alternative energy for the cooking fuel. At present people are using natural fuel for cooking and heating purposes but using briquette we can save natural fuel. The briquette is made from common woody weed. This documentary was mainly on how to make such briquette to reduce the use of natural fuel.
The impacts of climate change are already being felt – most acutely by millions of the world’s poorest people. They are already facing hunger, disease and conflict linked to climate change.
We help people (Child and Youth) in the plains, hills and urban areas of Nepal make short multimedia story about how climate change is being experienced by their communities. Making these films allowed them to explore how the changing climate is impacting them and their families, how they are coping and what they need in order to adapt to a changing climate.
