In a praiseworthy endeavor to raise awareness about climate change and corrective actions, Prof. Solanki has been on the Energy Swaraj Yatra for more than 1000 days, starting in November 2020 and set to continue until December 2030. Prof. Solanki's unwavering commitment to the cause is not just a journey but a lifestyle. He has pledged to forsake the comforts of home, dedicating himself to the cause 365 days a year, living within a solar-powered bus equipped with facilities for work, sleep, and cooking.
Having covered over 45,000 kilometers during the Energy Swaraj Yatra, Prof. Solanki has engaged with communities nationwide, delivering over 800 lectures to approximately 2,40,000 individuals. His diverse audience includes corporates, schools, colleges, and regulatory bodies. In his address, Prof. Solanki emphasized, "There are two fundamental laws of human existence on this planet: 'In an ecosystem of finite resources, there has to be finite consumption' and 'In an ecosystem of finite resources, there has to be distributed production.' Following the three-step approach of AMG - Avoid, Minimize, and Generate, we can achieve localized energy independence for sustainable human existence."
. Dinesh Seth, Dean (faculty of engineering and technology) at MIT- World Peace University remarked, "It was an eye-opening session. We are committed to supporting Prof. Solanki’s mission and participating in Action for Climate Correction." Throughout the Yatra, Prof. Solanki aims to guide organizations in adopting sustainable practices, emphasizing the importance of a carbon-neutral approach. The Energy Swaraj Yatra is not just a campaign; it's a movement towards a future where renewable energy is the norm.
As we confront the challenges of climate change, Prof. Solanki's tireless efforts serve as a beacon of hope and inspiration. His commitment is not only admirable but also a call to action for all of us to contribute to a more sustainable and equitable world.
