  • A new ropeway system in Nongtraw Village, India opened. The project was launched by the North East Slow Food and Agrobiodiversity Society (NESFAS) to help farmers transport their agricultural produce, livestock, and other materials. Prior to the ropeway system the only way in and out of Nongtraw was a 3,500 step stairway. The community also recently received the Best 2021 Sustainability Publication award by Hallbars and the Alfred Nobel Museum.
