    Ep.22 Sustaining The Present For A Better Future, Founder and Executive Director- Plastic Tides

    Every day almost 8million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into the oceans.
    What can be done about it?

    In this episode of Being The Change, host Rohan Thakar is chatting with Santa Cruz, California based, Christian Shaw who is the Founder & Executive Director of PlasticTides, A Non-Profit Organisation that has been closely involved with research for plastic pollution in the oceans by collecting samples across the globe.
    Their flagship programme- GYM (Global Youth Mentor) Programme is aimed at encouraging the youth to take responsibility for creating a plastic-free future. Here, the students create their own programmes with help of mentors. The programmes can be activities to reduce pollution or research on plastic pollution and creating solutions.

    Christian says, removing plastic from the ocean is not the complete solution, but reducing the dependency on the single-use plastic is.

    Here are a few solutions:

    Instead of the single-use packaged water bottle, use a reusable water bottle.
    Instead of taking shopping bags from the shopkeepers, get your own bag.
    Avoid pre-packed foods, get fresh, seasonal & locally available foods.

    It's just the simple habits of each person that can bring a ton of change!

    Ep.18 A Vision For Inclusion ft. Divyanshu Ganatra, founder - Adventures Beyond Barriers

    Ep.18 A Vision For Inclusion ft. Divyanshu Ganatra, founder - Adventures Beyond Barriers

    Nothing in the world can make you feel anything you don’t choose to, We choose it.
    You make your own reality.

    In this episode, host Rohan Thakar chats with Divyanshu Ganatra, he's a serial entrepreneur, a clinical psychologist, a thrill-seeker & extreme adventure sports enthusiast & is running a non-profit organization called Adventure Beyond Barriers Foundation(ABBF).
    What's amusing is that he lost his eyesight 2 decades back, when he was 19 due to glaucoma. 
    He is the living proof that if one has a strong will nothing is impossible. 

    Through ABBF, he is helping the disabled participate in adventure & endurance sports and is an activist who has been voicing his opinion for the need for inclusion & erasing the boundaries that exist between the "abled & disabled".

    Sport has the power to unite people, bring hope in them

    Divyanshu points out that "normal people" starting from school to one start working rarely meets a person who is "disabled". The reason is that there exists a boundary that doesn't allow & doesn't support the disabled to mix. The infrastructure is not built for inclusion. Something as simple as a footpath is not designed for physically disabled.
    He believes, with adventure sports, he can break the beliefs that a person who is "disabled" cannot do what a "normal person" can do.

    Listen to the complete episode and by the end of it, you will gain a fresh perspective toward life.
