Hours after announcing the birth of her son Avyaan Azaad Rekhi, Dia Mirza was back at work when she took to Instagram for a detailed conversation with activist Disha Ravi about the ongoing climate crisis.
Dia started the chat by thanking her fans for the love they showed for her family. She also said it is necessary for the current generation to leave the planet in good shape so that children can have a good future.
Dia Mirza shared the video of the chat with the caption: “Disha is a 22-year-old climate activist from Bengaluru, India. She is one of the most resilient, brave and inspiring young people working with @fridaysforfuture.india. When she was younger, she witnessed her grandparents, farmers affected by the #ClimateCrises, and this set her on the path of personal inquiry and #ForNature action. She is passionate about ensuring that the voices for MAPA – Most Affected People & Areas are represented in climate talks and negotiations.”
Disha Ravi, who is part of the Fridays for Future India movement, went on to say that as she comes from a farming family, she has seen how the shortage of water can affect the navvies. The 22-year-old activist spoke about MAPA (Most Affected People & Areas) and their representation in global climate talks. Disha also pointed out that tackling the climate crisis is the need of the hour, and she wants to pursue that mission as a journalist and writer.
Dia Mirza has been very vocal about climate change and the increased use of sustainable products for the benefit of the environment.
