"I believe that each of us is able to change the usual things, change our habits and beliefs to improve the quality of nature and life. I believe that this can be done in an easy and understandable way. It does not require large investments, but the adaptation of processes and ideas and the understanding of processes. We can be healthy and we can make the environment sustainable and healthy! It is also necessary to see the benefits that come with it, which generally improves the well-being of everyone's life. Let's start with the little things. By doing it together, everything can be done!"

8 ways to to help save energy

Pratick Dey 


Student of the master’s programme International Business

"I remember since my younger days, how my father would remind me to switch off all lights and electronic tools when leaving a room, once done. To never waste any electricity. I think those teachings were always in me, but they have started to come out in my mid-20s.

Given the rise in the global energy crisis, I feel it is essential that I contribute to the solution and not the problem. Since then I've been practising a few small and easy habits. Such as running laundry only when the machine is at full capacity, turning off the faucet of water when not using, and a few more are listed below.

Please go through these and try to implement these habits in your lives. The contribution of each individually globally is how the change in the world takes place."
