Njal, Environmental Activist

The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants which started in Geneva at the beginning of the week is about to end. Decisions regarding the Endosulfan pesticide ban are still pending. Njal, who has been raising awareness regarding Endosulfan’s impact on the environment and health in Auroville/bio-region, revealed the arguments from the side of the chemical industries. Plus how it’s difficult for farmers to understand the impact of Endosulfan. Njal hopes the 1000 signatures he gathered for the petition (sent to Geneva) against Endosulfan will result in a change for the best.

Njal also speaks of a recent event that warmed his heart: farmers have just bought all the”Limonool”, a natural alternative to chemical pesticides. A drop in the sea or a true shift in mind? Although it is hard to tell, at least at this time, awareness awakens.
