TBY to partner with palliative care movement:
Palliative Care is now the most visible social movements in Kerala thanks to the efforts of Pain and Palliative Care Society in Calicut. From a one-room clinic by the anaesthesia department in Calicut Medical College in 1993, palliative care has grown organically into a movement that has more than 8000 volunteers in action at any point of time mainly in the Malabar region of Kerala.
While entering the main campus of Institute of Palliative Medicine, there is a green patch known as “Smritivanam“, a wood dedicated to the memory of dear ones. This was nitiated by Forest Protection Staff Association, the trade union of forest protection staff six years ago
Top ten green breaks:
High life, the premium lifestyle magazine focusing on travel and fashion for all British Airways passengers have showcased The Blue Yonder Rajasthan holidays amongst the top ten green breaks.
Disaster prevention in tourism: perspectives on climate justice - Edited by Caesar D'Mello, Jonathan McKeown and Sabine Minninger
“In May 2007, BBC world was making a programme called Climate Watch where they were collecting information on the impact of global warming on local population and destinations in different parts of the world, including India. They got in touch with us and told us they wanted to document the impact of global warming on the river Nila (Bharatapuzha) in central Kerala. The river had by then started gaining international attention following our campaign to highlight this unique river valley civilization being destroyed through human greed.
We showed them a river now almost like a desert, a vulnerable coastline where rising sea levels have increased salinity in what were once fresh water sources." Excerpts from the chapter contributed by us.
