As you know environmental pollution has already become the world’s most formidable killer of humankind with over 7 million premature deaths happening annually because of pollution, let us join forces to fight against this invisible monster.
Environment Protection Movement of India (EPMI) is a new community-driven initiative that aims to carry out research, awareness campaigns, field demonstrations, and other outreach programs to sensitize all stakeholders in the environment protection domain.
The idea behind the formation of EPMI is to provide a common platform to people at large and the government departments as well as independent agencies so they could jointly formulate policies aimed at providing clean life to all.
The EPMI activities will cover air pollution, dust pollution, noise pollution, water pollution, littering, thermal pollution, and so on. Although EPMI will gradually expand its geographical reach, we will launch our initial campaigns in New Delhi, which is the most polluted city in the world.
Pollution is causing deaths with diseases such as ischaemic heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer, and acute lower respiratory infections in children. Other health hazards from air pollution include dizziness, headaches, burning eyes, cough, hard breathing, sore throat, chest pains, colds, and allergies.
