people from the society they get to the police questions how to frame questions how to design a question because question becomes very important your life and in the scientific world also when you design an experiment you least many many christians invited down. the deli. found it going to be years ago it all started with a blog to this day go and sing growing it and it whenever he comes across environmental problems. in the 1st blog post 1st published in march 2007 and then it will be published on interesting stories you know got the momentum it's actually i mean there was a. segment that had been spotted in january so there was a friend of ours who was spotted in the scene a professor and he shared the photograph and also many and then immediately asked permission and posted in the blog saying look a common bombs haven't spotted in any and then at the end when i buy it i was going
6:35 am
to pick up a snake and this for information and for you know the fact that you know how the park was being really showed the photograph in us and we immediately took it the mission and then publish it on the blog saying look this is what it's all about it's not just you know and it's also about and by that it's not just people it's all to having biodiversity and i. love to become a campaign by page for an environmental action the reason. some things on his grave one day that he did not like it on. one fine day we were walking back to university from the field and we found that all the trees in the university had been numbered and they would also numbered in any brutal manner so this marking old box had been scraped off and a number had been written on all the trees each tree had a unique number of cars so we went to various offices of the university to find out what's happening and then somebody said we don't know who's done this but. it is a given knowledge the number of trees that we probably fell in later. so there. and
6:36 am
then. there's an. on. the blog about the inappropriate making of the trees and the plans to cut them down aroused people's interest that's how the university's management found out and halted the plans to cut down the trees. deli greens and the luck the brits have now made a name for themselves as experts today they visit the garbage dump in brewery about an drive away from the city center residents complained to the organization about the down. it suspected that the dump is illegal and that the people who live in the neighborhood at risk of developing health problems.
6:37 am
trying to recycle. the problem but we were concerned about is that. because the amount of dust it is the. action of one of the vets and information channel about environmental issues like delhi greens has read as throughout india. already about 1200 people have taken part in. the delhi youth comment on climate change and the campaign to promote segregation in projects. as you know was called and used like the one oriental apartment in north west delhi's rohini district where new role materials are created from recycled waste. are almost on the lookout for those initiatives which workforce. effectively it's money spent and once i finish it even if i was. a woman
6:38 am
we heard that there was this one company. and is now. and has made an. oriental apartments so music from. delhi greens is a nonprofit organization financed by donations and the revenues from its workshops . with the funding and my members tried to make a little bit more livable. now regularly ecosystems like the ones in the biodiversity park has a variety of plants and animals big for example the red crested book the large duck breeds in southern europe and central asia and makes its way all the way to delhi for the winter but what makes the wetlands saw attractive this experience will help you answer that question. spread over a combined area of 12100000 square kilometers from the far north to the far south
6:39 am
there is an ecosystem that is richer than even rain forests wetlands. they support at least 100000 species of animal. what makes wetlands the most productive among all the ecosystems on the planet. to appreciate why that is it's important to 1st understand what makes a wetland. firstly continuous saturation by surface or ground water for most of the year secondly characteristic vegetation with a question of plants thirdly a unique type of substrate known as heidrick soil. it is the sponge like ability of the wetland to withstand different levels of water that makes it more productive than other ecosystems the physical properties of heidrick soil in one to absorb a higher proportion. of nutrients that makes wetlands home to many rare and endangered
6:40 am
species of terrestrial and aquatic plants and animals that are found in no other ecosystem. there is also a natural flow through and filtration system of nutrients a characteristic unique to wetlands. it's these properties that help called grass in a salt marsh for instance to produce more plant material and store more energy per acre than any agricultural crop. healthy wetlands are crucial to all wildlife and humans throughout the world many birds use wetlands as a pit stop in their long distance migration many animals there to reproduce wetlands provide great volumes of food especially the species that form the base of the food where acting as natural water purifiers they absorb many pollutants in surface waters their ability to trap and retain water protects land against floods
6:41 am
and the impact of storms of the 600000000 people are dependent on wetlands for fisheries and farming rice which is grown in wetland is the staple diet of nearly 3000000000 people what is worrying is that the world may have lost as much as 87 percent of its wetland since the years 1703 times the rate at which natural forests have been lost not only a wetlands a vital source of biodiversity they are also a source of livelihood for one out of 7 people on earth that means protecting all regions worldwide where water meets land brings benefits for all for the environment and the economy. now whatever your life situation gave you the option to save or to take any of that environmentally conscious decision various lobbies are working against you to prevent that from happening a fascinating give you that experience. as it's called challenges to strike

a balance between protecting the environment and pursuing your interests. this game is about climate change and the politics involved players build black factories or eco friendly green ones the dice can ruin a. players economy it all depends on a cart and the natural disaster it represents. it was important for us to designs the games that you are doing socially best thing we wanted to reproduce the real world tension so when you have the oil industry card in the beginning you need to play for the oil industry to win while if you have so green growth card you need to produce green growth. when germany's climate politics are played out and where german scientists are continuing to develop the game keep cool to give players a peek into the world of climate policy. clowes eisenach is an expert on the
6:43 am
economics of climate change and one of the brains behind keep cool i was always a game into the just so i could see swings to bring it in if you look in the real world climate change policies what's going on it's like a game. and as in the real world this game pits different players against each other. and it changes and serious issues but being afraid of it it's not the solution you need to creativity to solve the problems we have and the game is one way. that can games really help us to combat issues like climate change and industry lobby gnc on their studies the science behind toys and games. leaders and media. gamers are a medium that allows us to learn about new subjects. in the learning impact is in direct because the point is also to have fun. when we look at these games and play
6:44 am
them as an emotional involvement. so it's possible that we take that experience with us into the real world to. the humble the university is one of countless bad news hosting balance that neuroscience institute open. right and events where researchers present their work new technologies experiments and games. there's also a mobile version of keep cool. students here play with climate enthusiasm from all over the world in english or in 4 other languages. the mobile phone gives you control over how to develop your city. i think it's a great simulation and it really shows you all the intricacies of different interest. standing in the way of climate change this is just it so maybe there is very different things in reality players also have to factor in rising
6:45 am
temperatures just like in reality green factories are black the choices that and our climate change is one of the big threats we have in the 21st century and be every huge urgency to deal with this problem and we have lost too much time already i think we need to get the message that we need to do stuff individually that we need to change all behavior but it's the same so if you also need to have political change going on we need to engage and cooperate globally in class and his team have funding to take that game to the next level they just hope it can inspire players globally to make a change in the real world. shifting focus now poverty illiteracy a lack of awareness and an absence of better know the services for farmers in india's eastern state of it into their animal wonderful to be a sphere to the seizes the farmers often priests and quacks of the windage who
