Bhumi Pednekar is urging the entire nation to become climate-conscious and is looking to bring together the who's who of the film industry to spread awareness for nature conservation. The actress, who is also a vocal climate activist, runs her own non-profit initiative called Climate Warrior that celebrates real-life heroes working towards climate change and also works as an advocacy platform to engage and rally the youth of the country towards this cause. On this World Environment Day, Bhumi is looking to bring more awareness on this burning issue.

"Climate change, as a concept, is still not considered as a real issue today by a lot of people. There are such varied and grave climatic issues that are happening across the world which people are not even realising like increase of famines, forest fires, droughts, floods, melting ice caps, sea levels increasing, food and crop getting destroyed, heat waves across countries and continents, etc," said Bhumi.

She also shared a video on social media, where the actress' post has garnered a lot of attention.

This week is going to be full of surprises and tons of fun as #ClimateWarrior celebrates #WorldEnviormentDay :) We are kick-starting it with what is your #OneWishForTheEarth ? I have my friends and peers from the industry who have been kind enough to share their wish. So, if you have #OneWishForTheEarth (or more), share it with me. We will also be celebrating eco-friendly and sustainable #smallbusinesses and be in conversation with our little Climate Warriors from the ages of 4 to 8yrs.. they are just so cute ♥ï¸Â Also, a special mention to a very special launch (stay tuned to find out more ðŸ¤Â“). The sole effort put behind all of these activities has been a joy-ride and a learning process for me. I look forward to creating more and more awareness about the environment and our natural surroundings by learning to co-exist. Lots and lots of love, Climate Warrior (Bhumi)

"Climate Warrior is an initiative that is very close to my heart. It aims to focus on awareness building and engaging with the youth across India so that we become more conscious of our climate and environment, to encourage passionate advocacy for its conservation and protection and makes us think towards making environment-friendly life choices," the actress further added.

Bhumi concluded, "For World Environment Day, Climate Warrior is starting a small campaign – One Wish For The Earth. At this time and in this current scenario, there are many issues that the world is facing as an impact of the climate crisis. What our campaign endeavours to do is get thought leaders from my industry to tell the world what is the 'one wish they have for the earth'. I can't wait to share their thoughts to make the Earth a better place. Let's pledge for climate justice and let's unite to save our planet."

On the professional front, Bhumi Pednekar was last seen in Bhoot – Part One: The Haunted Ship, opposite Vicky Kaushal. The actress will next be a part of Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare and  Durgavati.
