Mobius Foundation in partnership with the WION channel is taking the vision of the Indian Government forward with its new year-long initiative ‘Mission Sustainability- Population V/s Planet’.
Overpopulation is among the most fundamental issues responsible for increasing global warming, deforestation, pollution, wildlife habitat loss, and accelerated depletion of natural resources.
बढ़ती जनसंख्या की विकरालता का सीधा प्रभाव प्रकृति पर पड़ता है जो जनसंख्या के आधिक्य से अपना संतुलन बैठाती है और फिर प्रारम्भ होता है असंतुलित प्रकृति का क्रूरतम तांडव जिससे हमारा समस्त जैव मण्डल प्रभावित हुए बिना नहीं रह सकता।
इस बात की चेतावनी आज से सैकड़ों वर्ष पूर्व माल्थस नामक अर्थशास्त्री ने अपने एक लेख में दी थी। इस लेख में माल्थस ने लिखा है कि यदि आत्मसंयम और कृत्रिम साधनों से बढ़ती जनसंख्या को नियंत्रित नहीं किया गया तो प्रकृति अपने क्रूर हाथों से इसे नियंत्रित करने का प्रयास करेगी।
The circular economy project is the latest sustainability programme that aims to regenerate & restore products, components, and materials to their ultimate value and utility. The project prioritises reusing, recycling, and reducing products back to the society and environment in order to protect the earth from further disintegration. The project helps to close the loop as part of a cycle that encourages a better system for conserving biodiversity. The course focuses on educational NGOs, institutions, organisations, and universities as well as plastic sector SMEs and suppliers for OEMs.
The 3rd International Conference on Sustainability Education (ICSE) was organised on 9-10th September 2021 between 15:00 – 17:00 hrs by Mobius Foundation in partnership with some of the key environmental organizations, Climate Reality Project, UNESCO, Centre for Environment Education (CEE), Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE, Copenhagen), The Energy and Resource Institute (TERI), Earth Day Network, WWF India etc.

The first Forum was held on World Environment Day 2020 (4-5 June, 2020) through an International Webinar and School Principals Conclave with the theme “Sustainability Education In Covid Era”. On 11th July 2020, ICSE Forum 2 was held in conjunction with World Population Day 2020, with a webinar titled “Population And Sustainability In The Covid Era.”
The Covid-19 pandemic has caused significant disruption in education, forcing approximately 1.58 billion children and youth to leave their schools. Several new and innovative online, virtual, and distance teaching learning initiatives are being tested as the new normal around the world, each with their own set of benefits and drawbacks. The challenge now is to mitigate as much as possible the negative impact of the pandemic on learning and schooling, and to build on this experience to get back on track to rebuilding the educational system.
The international conference provides a global platform for world dignitaries, and intellects to address the current and emerging sustainability challenges and a need for Education for Sustainability (ESD), Climate Change Education (CCE) and Environmental Education (EE) in the current course curriculum.

To commemorate World Environment Day, Mobius Foundation launched a mass tree plantation drive on 7th June, 2018 as part of Project Sanjeevani to increase the state of Haryana’s green cover. Over 5000 saplings were planted in collaboration with numerous schools, farmers, self-help groups, kisan club members, and NGOs in order to reduce pollution and carbon footprint. Individual groups are responsible for maintaining the saplings, which are then monitored by a structured monitoring system.
Responding to the need for basic health facilities in the community, Mobius Foundation deployed 48 Mobile Health Camps in the remote areas of Sonipat and Panipat. The initiative successfully created awareness of healthcare and hygiene among farmers, women, youth, and students.
