It is a finite world we live in, but, with growing urbanisation, our consumption of resources has increased tremendously. We need to re-think the way we function. We need to adapt to more sustainable ways of living. If we want to survive on this planet, “Reduce, Re-use, Recycle” is the only way.
The “Mobius Foundation” works to spread the concept of sustainability for us and for future generations.
The Mobius strip is named after August Ferdinand Mobius, a famous mathematician. Mobius Foundation, as the name implies, is committed to sustainability, strengthening systems with empowering technologies and encouraging healthy behaviour. The principle being a focus on education, environment, population stabilization that contribute to sustenance. Mobius has the vision to collaborate with a diverse range of public & civil partners to advance the cause & practices of sustainable consciousness in Indian citizens.
Why is sustenance a Mobius core concept?
The world is on the path of destabilisation by human intervention. There have been tremendous amounts of advancements leading to better standard of living. But we are not consciously working our way towards urbanisation.
In the race of improving the lifestyle, we missed the focus on building a sustainable living for us and our future generations. Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual’s or society’s use of the earth’s natural resources and personal resources. Practitioners of sustainable living often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering methods of transportation, energy consumption, and diet.
“SUSTANIABILITY” today is the need of the hour and not only a foundation but every individual should work towards build a sustainable living. Our planet is at breaking point. But it’s not too late to save it
How is the Mobius Foundation working towards fulfilling its goals of sustainability
The projects under Mobius Foundation are constructed on the 4 main Ideologies:
Mobius believes population stabilisation is a crucial step needed to address global issues like poverty, extinction of species and carbon footprint. Through health, education and financial incentive programs, the foundation aims to achieve a sustainable future.
Our Project “Aakar” is working on the same ideology.
In line with the Government of India’s commitment to promoting population stabilization,
we are working in two districts of Uttar Pradesh (Behraich and Barabanki) targeting 200 villages and will further roll out across five districts with highest birth rates.
Project AAKAR will educate people on the importance of reproductive health, family planning and increasing the uptake of contraceptives
We have come up with the concept of “Zimmedar Hum” that aims to provide eligible couples with information and guidance on family planning methods and services available and “Dampatti No 1” Communication that is appealing and understood in the rural areas.
Mobius aims to educate people and instil responsibility for the environment. The foundation believes that making people aware of the consequences of their actions, will help them realise the gravity of the consequences.
Project “Gyan Anant Vidyalaya” and “World Environment School” are being executed,realising the value of education and how it will help shape future generations.
Gyan Anant Vidyalaya: Coming up in Village “Atrauli” District Hapur, the school will focus on rural education, mainly agriculture centric and addressing environmental issues.
Besides following the CBSE curriculum, it will cover various issues, such as climate change, renewable energy, recycling and sustainability. The school will also have sports facilities and other co-curricular activities to encourage physical activity.
The student-teacher ratio will remain at 1:20, to provide better attention to each student.
The school is expected to start in 2020 and will help students by developing agricultural skills and also help them with placements for higher studies.
World Environment School, Coorg: Mobius is creating the world’s leading natural learning laboratory where learning never ends. In March 2020 the World Environment School, Coorg will open its doors to its first students. WESC will be the first school in India and in South Asia which will promote environmental education with sustainability as its core. Its mission is to be a global leader in this field.
Welcoming students from grade 6 to 12, WESC will be a school where students will discover themselves, becoming environmental advocated and empowering green leaders. WESC students will benefit from a truly holistic and hands-on approach, where experiential learning drives the education process.
Mobius believes that adopting clean energy is a must to reduce pollution. The need of the hour is to make eco-friendly sources of energy like solar, wind and geothermal energy more accessible and affordable for the masses.
Project “Sanjeevani” is a part of many ecological conservation projects undertaken by Mobius Foundation towards environmental sustainability.
As many as 150 people, school students, youth, farmers, Self-help group members, Kisan club members, officials of various departments and other NGOs have taken part in this plantation drive, at ARF R&D Centre of Chidana, Sonepat.
The objective was to create awareness of the environmental benefits of trees. The tree planting will be monitored by Mobius Foundation, to assess the rate of the drive.
The foundation holds a firm belief that the three Rs, Reduce, Reuse & Recycle, will help achieve an eco-friendly environment. The three steps will also ensure conservation of natural resources, decline in energy consumption and decrease in pollution.
There are many such project and participation by Mobius Foundation in various other sectors like Mobile Health Camps, School Support Programs, Solar Street Lights installation, Toilet Construction, Training & Awareness Program on food safety and natural farming practices.
Mobius will always be on move and in constant search of opportunities where it can contribute to the world in building a sustainable future.
Additionally, the foundation is proud to be associated with Universal Trustees Private Limited, a Professional Estate Planning, Trusteeship and Executor Services Company offering its services in India to resident and non-resident families, corporates and charities. The Universal Trustees Private Limited supports Mobius in its vision of environment sustainability.
