Sonipat, 7 June, 2018: Reaffirming its commitment to Environment Sustainability, Pradip Burman-led Mobius Foundation today announced the launch of a mega initiative — Project Sanjeevani – as part of its mission to create a Greener Haryana. Under this initiative, a mass plantation drive was organized by Mobius Foundation, along with an NGO SATHI at the Ayurvet Research Foundation R&D Centre in Village Chidana of Sonepat (Haryana). Under the project, launched to mark the World Environment Day, 5,000 saplings will be planted around the villages of Sonipat and Panipat districts of Haryana over the next three months.
Over 100 school students, village youth, farmers, Self-Help Group members, Kisan club members, and officials of various government departments and NGOs are associated with the project and will be part of the 3-month plantation drive. The objective of this drive is to create awareness on Environment Sustainability among students and farmers.
Mr. Pradip Burman, Founder of Mobius Foundation said, Each one of us should take responsibility to make changes in their lives, so that your grand-children can live in a pollution free environment and can eat pesticide free vegetables. On the occasion of World Environment Day all citizens should take a pledge to reduce carbon emissions, recycle plastics and nurture trees to improve the air quality. Today we are starting a drive to plant and nurture 5000 trees which will mitigate the effects of climate change and bring awareness about the need to reduce the carbon foot print”
In a world struggling with scarcity, the foundation believes that Environmental Conservation is the key to a better future and a greener planet. Since Independence, a fifth of India’s land has consistently been under forests. The population has increased more than three times since 1947, and from 1951-80, a total 42,380 sq km of forestland was diverted — some 62% of it for agriculture. And yet, the country’s forest cover continues to hover just over 20%.
Mobius Foundation has been spearheading various programmes across the country to promote education, including setting up a Residential Green School in Coorg, Karnataka and a Day School in Atrouli Village, Uttar Pradesh.
