en-The challenge of a healthy environment and opportunities for work and career
Self-reliance, meaningful, and healthy employment is the first step out of poverty and an important step towards greater social inclusion. It is the key to wealth creation and the main instrument for its equitable redistribution. Education and employment has a direct and positive impact on the other dimensions of urban poverty.
"Nothing is more fundamental to the fight against poverty than employment in a meaningful and environmentally responsible way. Education is and remains the key to change. There is an urgent need for action. We need to develop awareness of these problems of women and children and we will turn the dilemma into future opportunities in which women participate," Anja Carron, President Theia International and initiator of WOMEN FOR FUTURE: VANAKKAM
Bangalore,capital of the state of Karnataka and a concentration area of the information technology (IT) industry, has made a name for itself worldwide in recent years. Bangalore is located in the heart of South India on the Deccan Plateau and is the fifth largest metropolis in the country. Bangalore is considered the Silicon Valley of India. All the major computer and software manufacturers develop and produce in the South Indian metropolis of five million people, and in the 1990s the city, also known as "Garden City", developed into one of the fastest growing agglomerations in Asia. Due to the increasing globalization of markets and the settlement of large international companies in Bangalore, the city has become a serious competitor in the international IT market. Bangalore is considered a myth, a model of success in a networked globalized world, a role model for other Indian cities. But if you look around this city outside the magnificent buildings and high-tech enclaves, it soon becomes clear that this development has left its serious shadows. The task of this paper is to identify the problems of this rapid development and to prove that social disparities and environmental conflicts have been further aggravated by the rapid economic development. There are 400 slums scattered throughout the city, in which one million people live. Many live on the garbage of the rich. But the city, poverty and wealth continue to grow.
There is an urgent need for action. We must take the offensive now. We must develop an awareness of these problems of women and children and we will turn the dilemma into future opportunities in which women can participate. We are talking about a major change. These women are on their way alongside the new generation of young talents who are accompanying this change. This is an opportunity not only for India but also for us in Europe. We are on the threshold of a development that will challenge our social system to the limit. Keywords are unemployment, demography and migration.
