CANADA IS THE LEADING COUNTRY WITH THE TREE: PERSON RATIO OF 9000 TREES PER PERSON.

IN 10 YEARS?

IN 15 YEARS?

COME ON INDIA, LET’S SHOW THE WORLD THAT WE ARE SECOND TO NONE!!!!

 

The bottom line is to make a Green India and a Greener Earth.

What is Igniting Minds doing Now?

A study has revealed that a person on an average consumes 284.7 kgs of Oxygen per year. On an average, a tree produces 100 kgs. of Oxygen per year. It means that on an average a person consumes Oxygen produced by three trees in a year.

The forest cover of the earth today is only 31% of our earth. The loss of forest is 5.2 million hectares per year, in the name of urbanisation. The grim fact is that slowly but surely, we are choking ourselves and the life on earth to extinction.

We, at Igniting Minds, have decided to restore and revive the green cover by planting trees all across the nation. To make it interesting and a social activity, we have come up with the concept of ‘GREEN INDIA CHALLENGE’. We have coined a Slogan, ‘Hara hai toh bhara hai’ to take it forward and make it viral.

The iconic leader, former President of India, the missile man, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam’s death anniversary falls on 27th July. As a fitting tribute to that great soul, who strived for the humanity in general and the people of our nation in particular, we at Igniting Minds have decided to launch this global movement on this day and dedicate it to the visionary who strived for the betterment of humanity.

 

What is the challenge?

First, you accept Igniting Minds’ “Hara hai toh, Bhara hai” #GreenChallenge of planting 3 trees in the next 10 days. Then, you nurture them for the next 3 years, geotag and post the photographs of the same.

As a next step, you pass on the challenge to 3 others, who take it further and the chain continues. It is that simple.

The challenge was initiated over a week ago and has had a cascading effect. It has not only spread across 30 states of India to date but, has also gone viral globally with people across the globe accepting and spreading the challenge in over 36 countries till the last reports came in. This is a very encouraging sign and only goes to show that a good humanitarian cause gets worldwide acceptance despite the geographical demarcations. The Minister for IT, Municipal Admin. & Urban Development, Industries & Commerce, Textiles & NRI Affairs, Shri. K. T. Ramarao accepted the challenge and planted three saplings and geotagged them. He, in turn, challenged Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Rajdeep Sardesai, and Matinee idol, Mahesh Babu.

The United States Counsel General in Hyderabad, Ms. Katherine B. Hadda accepted the challenge, planted the saplings, tagged the same and passed on the challenge to Saina Nehwal and other celebrities. It is spreading by the minute and the list of participants is growing and spreading like wildfire.
