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

CHINA HAS 112 TREES PER PERSON.

INDIA HAS 28 TREES PER PERSON.

NOW THE BAAP OF ALL CHALLENGES- HOW SOON CAN WE BEAT THE TREES PER PERSON RATIO OF CHINA:

 

IN 5 YEARS?

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.

Igniting Minds, Founded by M. Karunakara Reddy and Co-founded by Mr.S.Raghava has taken upon itself to address causes that are socially relevant and tries to mobilise mass participation of the people to make the society a better place to live in.

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, geo tag 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 on 17th July 2018  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.
