Environmental Issues for Diaspora Panjabis

There are several essential environmental topics that are all the more important today in view of climate change and the need to live a more sustainable lifestyle. It is important that Diaspora Panjabis take a lead in incorporating these environmental aspects as part of their daily life. They have to be done on a gradual basis and should not be implemented in a radical manner.

DEEP has worked on many of the following environmental issues with several community groups and in places of worship.
