    Manipur’s eight-year-old environmental activist, or popularly known as ‘India’s Greta Thunberg’, Licypriya Kangujam has invented a device to tackle air pollution.

    She has named the device, SUKIFU (Survival Kit For the Future) is designed from trash and it is almost a zero budget kit which will provide fresh air into our body and when the pollution rate is high.

    Launching it in front of the Punjab and Haryana Legislative Assembly House on November 3rd, 2019, she demonstrated the use of the kit. She drew the attention of the political leaders to find an urgent solution to curb the current crisis of air pollution in Delhi and the National Core Region (NCR).

    On November 2nd, 2019, she took to Facebook to write about the device, “It’s inspired by the Chih Chiu’s ‘Voyage on the planet‘. This invention sends a poignant message about environmental degradation and resilience to the whole world. The piece questions the planet’s unknown future and environmental depletion.”

    In SUKIFU, a potted plant is housed inside a round glass backpack which is connected to one tube which will funnel fresh air into a face mask. She developed the device with the help of an Indian Institute of Technology, Jammu & Kashmir professor Chandan Ghosh.

    It may be mentioned that the capital recently recorded an Air Quality Index of 999, beyond which reading is not possible. Also, according to the World Health Organization survey of 1600 cities in the world, air pollution in India will kill 1.5 million people every year.

    Kangujam was also awarded the prestigious ‘World Children Peace Prize 2019’ by Global Peace Index, Institute for Economics & Peace (IEP), Maldives. Greta is a Swedish teenager who is credited with raising global awareness of the risks posed by global warming and climate change.
