The start of The Voice of Nature: In the summer of 2008, to help address the global problem of electronic waste (e-waste), SVTC teamed up with Chintan Environmental Research and Action Group on a research project to document the impact of e-waste on workers and communities in and around Delhi, India. The Voice of Nature was created so that supporters could follow Sheila Davis, SVTC’s executive director, lauren Ornelas, SVTC’s campaign director, and Serena Mau, a U.C. Berkeley Intern, on their journey to Hong Kong and India.
The future of The Voice of Nature: After the trip, SVTC received so much support that we decided to keep blogging about our work with Chintan, our current and future campaigns, and issues we find important to bring to the forefront of local, national, and global attention.
