India - Bright future for solar power

The construction of a solar energy plant at the foot of the sacred Mount Abu hill in the Indian state of Rajasthan is drawing crowds from around the country - in addition to the usual pilgrims. The project is being supported by German funding and expertise. 

The spiritual community there known as the Brahma Kumaris, place great value on protecting the environment and are determined to provide all of their own energy in the future.

At the last meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, a group of young people formed an international network to share ideas. Members have one thing in common - they're determined to change the face of the world for the better. And in India, the Brahma Kumaris spiritual community is hoping to take over responsibility for its own power supply with the building of a new solar park.
