Q:

How do you protect the pulse of the planet?

A:

I’m an admirer of nature and would never want its beauty and resources to come to ruin. After working with ICIMOD, I became aware about how mountains are a key asset for survival and have understood that we all need to protect the pulse of the planet. Through my work, I protect the pulse with private sector and other partnerships by creating awareness among a very broad group of institutions and people about mountains as a key asset for our collective survival. Personally, also, I have stopped using plastic to the very best of my ability and I try to create awareness among others about it through social media.
