EcoSphere believes that the solution to environmental problems could be found in The Vedas. It talks about the five element by which our mother Earth is made up of. “The Pancha Mahabhuta” or “five great elements” are bhūmi (earth), ap or jala (water), tejas or agni (fire), marut – vayu or pavan (air or wind) and vyom or shunya (space or zero) or akash (aether or void).

The time has come to take concerted efforts to protect each essential element of the environment. At EcoSphere, we believe that only mass awareness and education will help us our targets related to environment conservation. Taking care of these essential elements will only help us resolve the existing problems with the environment.

This seminar, hosted by EcoShphere, will provide a forum for high-level discussion on key issues concerning the protection of the environment. Also, we encourage the youngsters to be a part of the celebrations and obtain the opportunity to share their ideas and activities for making our world cleaner, greener, better and brighter. So let us all pledge to do something, at least one single thing, as our contribution of the World Environment Day.

Researchers are developing a wearable device that aims to provide individualised information while gathering environmental data.

According to researchers, the device can measure the wearer’s physiological response to their immediate environment.

“We have added some sensors to the Fitbit watches that get information from air temperature and humidity, but also from the physiological response of the individual in that environment, such as your heart rate, your skin temperature, and your skin humidity,” said Negin Nazarian from UNSW.

“We have also developed some apps where you can interact with and tell us how you feel about the environment, so that way we can develop a methodology and a solution that is personalised and not one-size-fits-all,” Nazarian added.

The team says the aim of Project Coolbit is to create a personalised comfort model for each wearer, as well as crowdsourcing environmental data in the city in real-time.

“So your wearable already knows your personal comfort model, it knows your preference of the environment, the type of activities you like and some information about your physiological response,” the team said.

A Coolbit user could create a personalised heat safe route for a run, based on the previous information received by the wearable, according to the researcher.

“It also knows, based on the environmental information that other parties may give about the cities, the climate of the city,” the researchers said. (IANS)
