Every year 22 May is celebrated as International Day for Biological Diversity. The theme will be: "Celebrating 25 Years of Action for Biodiversity". The theme was chosen to mark the 25th anniversary of the entry into force of the Convention on Biological Diversity and to highlight progress made in the achievement of its objectives at the national and global levels.
Each World Environment Day is organized around a theme that focuses attention on a particularly pressing environmental concern. The theme for 2018, “Beat Plastic Pollution,” is a call to action for all of us to come together to combat one of the great environmental challenges of our time. The theme invites us all to consider how we can make changes in our everyday lives to reduce the heavy burden of plastic pollution on our natural places, our wildlife – and our own health.
We provide customized employee volunteering opportunities across major cities in the field of environment. We tie up with local NGOs for execution of such activities.
We offer following half/full day activities:
Tree plantation | Clean-up drives (lakes, public parks, forest tracks) | Deweeding | Seed collection | Kitchen Gardening | Development of animal shelter | Tree tagging | Nature trail development | Bund-building | Contour bunding for water conservation
We ensure our volunteer work as teams. We devise works as per the team strength. Here the volunteers are engrossed in developing nesting material boxes for birds.
We treat our volunteers with a nature trail on whichever location they volunteer. So that they develop compassion for the site where they slog to improve.
We identify sites where a butterfly habitat could be developed. We enter in to partnership with site partner which could Govt.. NGO or Educational Institutions. We also engage a NGO partner. We develop proposal and pitch ideas to potential clients. We conduct the ground work on getting the project sanctioned which comes to the NGO partner. We then execute the project on behalf of the NGO partner. We do monitoring and reporting for the corporate client on quarterly basis. Our monitoring and evaluation works include status of plant survival rate and increase in butterfly population at the site. In most of our existing sites we have seen an increase of 10-20% butterfly diversity.
We design the project execution as well as the maintenance works of the butterfly site keeping the employee engagement component in mind.
We also include local community engagement wherein we conduct free butterfly awareness programmes for local schools and colleges.
