Abstract [en]

My project is an Ecological center with three programs: an educational part, primary for children, a veterinary station and a NGO Centre. During the study trip to Ahmedabad I couldn’t help to notice the bad condition of the stray dogs. There’s problems with rabies and lack of animal birth control of the dogs. I also saw cases when children were hurting dogs and doves, throwing rocks at them, and I also read that Collage students hit stray dogs with sticks in the University havens because they got scared when the animals starts to flock there. I was confused how India, where all living being is considered having a "God value" and should be treated in that way, and also with an outspread vegetarianism would have this condition. For me it seemed like people didn't care or hadn't found a solution for this problem.

Then the second reason for creating this project was that I was missing green areas in Ahmedabad, which also is one of the most polluted cities in India. With providing a "chawk" with green parts and bring knowledge of the importance of having a sustainable environment, the kids will learn how to treat nature and animals so they can bring this knowledge further in their surroundings and future city-scaping.
