Uttarakhand Parivartan Party (UKPP)'s Climate Action

The issue of the climate change is grave and crucial in any part of the world as the very existence of the earth is at stake!

Every concerned society and political party across the globe is trying to find the way out of the climate change challenge. a lot of rhetoric is going on on several fora. from india to america and from the uttarakhand parivartan party (UKPP) to the united national -- the air is hot with the climate change challenge!

Still, no solution to the challenge!

Everybody trying very hard. the UKPP on its own held two delberations on the climate change challege: (1) "climate change: our perspective", and (2) "climate change: the uttarakhand-himalaya context". the first was held at ramnagar, district nainital, uttarakhand on september 20, 2014; and the second on in dehradun, district dehradun, uttarakhand on september 21, 2014.

The outcome of these two meetings has resulted in the dehradun declaration on climate change. draft of the declaration was distributed in the second meeting and the final text of the dehradun declaration is under discussion. we will share it with you once it has been approved by the political affairs committee of UKPP.

In these meetings, several leaders of other politcial organisations like the uttarakhand kranti dal, aam aadmi party, congress, BJP, and various social organisations like the bharat gyan-vigyan samiti also participated.
