“350″ in INDIA – Leh, Ladakh
High up in Leh, Ladakh, one of the most remote and mountainous areas of India, over 1,500 people gathered in December 2008 for a colorful display of their concern for climate change and their call for a world returned to less than 350 ppm CO2.
Ladakh, like more and more places around the globe, is already facing real challenges in face of climate change — unpredictable weather, floods, and the prospects of diminished water supply from glacial melt.
The Ladakh 350 climate change festival was organized by Will Wickham, a study abroad student from the USA and the Ladakh Young Buddhist Association.
