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.
Vana Chaitanya Yatras are a series of short and time bound intensive plantation drives that are taken up by CGR.
The Programme is aimed to make planting and protection of trees an integral part of our social, spiritual and cultural life.
This Programme motivates people to plant ‘Memorial orchards /gardens’ either by themselves or
CGR through innovative approaches like using seed balls for plantation, strives to promote the restoration of green cover in ecologically degraded dry lands.
