Talking about the campaign, Satyaprem Upadhyay, Co-Founder, Nojoto, says, “The solution to the concern ‘Air-Pollution’ is not just speeches / panel discussions, but one – to spread awareness on the subject and second, to change the mindset through easy dialogue and fresh perspectives. With this campaign, we aim to create an innovative and engaging platform for Poets, Writers, Stand-up Comedians, Photographers, Theatre Artists, etc, who will come forward to share their approach to the matter, in a form that is conducive to bring about a change.”

The campaign was launched on 26th November at Stirring Minds from 4 to 8 pm, and saw 100+ poets and writers joinng it, which was hosted by Anil Singhania, a famous poet of North India, who spoke about air pollution: 

 

 

In India, 2nd December is annually observed as National Pollution Control Day in memory and honour of the people who lost their lives in the Bhopal Gas tragedy. Pollution level in Delhi, as per recent reports, is equivalent to smoking 44 cigarettes a day.

 

 

On this 2nd December, “Can I Breathe?” A Voice Against Air Pollution, is kick-starting a series of online and offline activities, which are devised to raise awareness, create a dialogue and chart a way forward on the subject.
