Green Mission

As per the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, India, 33 % of green cover is a basic requisite for the ecological balance of a region. However, a large part of the country has a scanty vegetative cover.

Vanaprerana Udyamam is a massive tree plantation initiative by CGR to restore green cover and ecological balance in semi-arid areas. The programme is facilitated through varied approaches and means by promoting societal participation.

Children are the hope of the future of new India. A nation grows with its children who are just like the buds that bloom into flowers and leave behind a fragrance. These tender children have to be shaped and guided to save our common future. By inculcating the seed of environmental conservation in young minds, CGR strives to create earth leaders. Hence, children are the key stakeholders in all its programme.

Objectives

  • To enhance green cover and restore ecological balance in degraded and vulnerable landscapes.
  • To sow the seed of environmental leadership in young minds.
  • Sensitize and promote societal responsibility towards the conservation of nature.
