During the occasion, Lepcha, said, “Sustainable and resilient communities can meet their present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs and recover from various environmental, social, and economic challenges. Since 2015, the Sikkim Government has taken many measures to promote environmental, social, and economic sustainability, infrastructure and technology, and emergency preparedness. Sikkim has topped all parameters of Sustainable Development Goals for 2021 in the Northeast region. We are the first state in the world to turn fully organic.”

During the event, a speedball distribution campaign was launched in Sikkim by the C20 Sustainable and Resilient Communities (SRC) Working Group, in association with AYUDH, the Mata Amritanandamayi Math’s global youth wing. The global campaign aims to disperse one million seed balls in fragile ecosystems worldwide and create general awareness in people about the significance of seed balls in restoring ecological balance.
