Climate change awareness is at an all time high in India. All across the country we hear of citizens gathering and acting for change. The ‘mainstream’ world media chooses to ignore this movement, spending more time harping on India’s ‘threatening’ role in carbon emissions.

Here at Yeh Hai Life, we have decided to shout this from the rooftops. We will post, highlight,  and spread awareness of the many positive developments in India’s Green Movement. If you hear of such movements and events, do tell.

Here’s one – the 99999 campaign in Chennai, India

‘99999 Lights Out’ is a campaign initiated by Exnora International spreading the message of awareness to everyone who cares to act, towards the reversal of Global Warming.

99999 in action: A ‘9 minute’ public display of unison, when everyone will switch off their lights for 9 minutes at 9 pm on the 9th day of the 9th month of the 9th year of this millennium, in support of the fight against ‘Global Warming’.
