CHAIRMAN'S MESSAGE

Mr.Pradip Burman

Sustainability drives us, here, at The Mobius Foundation.

An ecosystem, a lifestyle, or a community which is sustainable, is one which supports itself and its surroundings. Sustainability itself can be defined by three core elements, each of which must be considered in relation to the others: Environmental Protection, Social Development and Economic Development.

The Mobius Foundation is focused on sustainability. We must renew, re-use and replace the finite treasures of the only planet we have. Schools should include environmental education, since the next generation will bear the brunt of the rape of our beautiful Earth.

 

For thousands of years, there were no air-conditioners, no cars, no planes. Humans survived. There were no power-stations and factories spewing smoke into the air just so we can use electric fans, lights and synthetic fabrics. Our grandparents did not have refrigerators or air-conditions. They survived quite comfortably. People travelled, slowly, but what was the rush? Fields around the cities sent wheat, rice, pulses and vegetables on bullock carts. Earthen pots kept drinking water cool.

This century is all about having everything and doing everything fast!!
