The solution to our rapidly – developing environmental crisis is quite simple – Youth Supremacy.
Young people have a unique relationship with the environment. They, more than any other generation, have been raised to feel a responsibility toward the environment. And that’s important because they will be the first generation in charge of correcting the problems caused by the widespread pollution of the atmosphere and rampant misappropriation of natural resources.
Young people constitute a large part of the Uttarakhand’s population. Many, especially young children, are particularly vulnerable to environmental risks associated with, for example, access to hygienic living conditions. Future generations will also be affected by there decisions and the extent to which they have addressed concerns such as the depletion of resources, the loss of biodiversity and menace of plastic bags. Whatever we say but we know real change comes when the youth starts contributing something or the other towards society and we youngsters are optimistic of bringing better times for the future ones, so we have come up with this enthusiastic group of young members who have formed an army to fight against environmental degradation. An inspiring thought by Margaret Mead “Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.” and G Force is a group which has been built for this anticipated change. G Force is moving ahead gradually and making its impact for a new kind of “green revolution”.
Green Force is working with complete dedication and they are making their presence felt by calling political leaders to account for the long-range environmental consequences of their decisions. Green Force is actively participating in practical environmental projects like ‘Adopt a Plant’, ‘Carry your Bag’, ‘Say No to Polythene Poster Campaign’. They are collecting signatures for implementation of our own Uttarakhand Non Biodegradable Garbage Control Act and spreading awareness about the polythene menace. Green Force is doing a great work of promoting environmental awareness simply because they have better access to information about the environment than do their elders. Because youth have a stronger awareness of the issues and a greater stake in long-term sustainability, the environment is one area in which they ought to take the lead. Green Force will always be engaged in new forms of action and activism that will generate effective responses to ecological challenges faced by Dehradun.

Through ‘Green Force,’ we hope to encourage locals from all walks of life to personally commit to reducing climate and environmental pollution by switching to reusable carry bags and carry jute or cloth bags for shopping.
The youth of today possess different kinds of skills and talents. You are good, whether in stage performance or academics. You should use these gifts as a mean of communication to the masses. You must use up your talents in letting the nation become aware of this threatening occurrence in our environment. You should be creative enough for the sake of the future generations.
When gathered together by the power of unity, the youth can develop a strong force that can influence the people. With the unity of the youth together with the use of their talent as a mean of communication to the masses, we can surely recover our great Mother Earth.
