              It is not so much about whether life will change, it’s more about how life will change and who will really benefit. From a life of sustainability to one of economic dependency and uncertainty within the span of just a single generation. Yousef belongs to the Gujjar community, a semi-nomadic group living in the valleys and mountains of the Kashmiri Himalayas, India. The people of his community and millions of others like them are not only beginning to lose their strong cultural identity but also their relationship with their environment and with it the possibility of a truly sustainable future. With thanks to Yousef and the people of his village Azbandar in Sonmarg Valley.
