Indians in Uganda and East Africa: Retrospection and Realities INVITATION TO OUR 166th ICC ZOOM PUBLIC MEETING
Vastu or Vaastu architecture is an ancient Indian system of building design that emphasises the balance of energies within a space. There are some ways in which Vastu can have an indirect impact on climate change or global warming. For example, the orientation of a building in accordance with Vastu principles can affect its exposure to the sun and wind, which can impact its energy efficiency and potentially reduce the need for heating and cooling. Additionally, the use of natural materials and sustainable building practices in Vastu architecture can help reduce the carbon footprint of a building and contribute to the overall effort to mitigate climate change.
In addition to its potential impact on energy efficiency and sustainable building practices, Vastu architecture can also promote a connection with nature that can help individuals develop a greater appreciation for the environment. This can lead to a greater awareness of the impact of human activities on the planet, including those that contribute to climate change. By incorporating elements such as natural light, open spaces and indoor gardens into a building design, Vastu architecture can create a sense of harmony and balance with the natural world that can inspire individuals to take actions to protect the environment and reduce their carbon footprint. While Vastu architecture may not be a direct solution to climate change, it can play a role in promoting sustainable practices and raising awareness of the importance of protecting the planet for future generations.
