Bhumi Pednekar urged the youth to raise their voice against pollution as she shared a video on Wednesday, on social media.
Sharing the video, she wrote, “The climate crisis is happening NOW. We need action FAST. I’m joining @undp’s #DearWorldLeaders campaign to demand urgent and bold action from world leaders. I am committed to doing my part. Will you do yours? #DearWorldLeaders.”
The 33-year-old actor has consistently advocated conservation and protection of the environment and she has started a pan-India campaign called Climate Warrior, which aims at raising awareness about climate change and environmental conservation.
Climate Warrior is a concerted online initiative that Bhumi used to focus on awareness building and engage the people of our country to become more conscious of climate and environment-friendly life choices. It also highlights the work done by tireless environmental activists and citizen groups across India to bring about sustainable change to the environment.
Now, Bhumi has become a part of this campaign on climate change aimed at galvanising the youth for the important United Nations Climate Change conference – COP27. United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is aiming at creating an impactful initiative to bring citizen and celebrity voices directly to world leaders and decision-makers as a lead up to COP27 happening in Egypt from 6th-18th November.
The ‘Badhaai Do’ actor asked people to raise their voice against pollution and promote recycling. She said, “I’m here to urge you to take climate action now. Heat waves, droughts, floods, tsunamis, wildfires are ravaging our planet and pushing millions of people across the world into deeper poverty. Pollution is damaging our health and our wellbeing. We are at a tipping point and cannot afford to lose any more time.”
Bhumi added, “I’m committed to do my part. I recycle water, say no to single use plastic, live a sustainable life. But we need more from you.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Bhumi has several projects in her kitty. She will be seen in Anubhav Sinha’s ‘Bheed’. Also in her kitty is Ajay Bahl’s ‘The Ladykiller’, a suspense drama, which revolves around a small town playboy who falls in love with a self-destructive beauty as they embark on a whirlwind romance. The film also stars Arjun Kapoor in the lead role.
She has Shashank Khaitan’s ‘Govinda Aala Re’, ‘Afwaa’, Gauri Khan produced ‘Bhakshak’ and a couple of more unannounced projects. (ANI)
