Let’s Plan(t) The World Better
We take so much from the environment, it only makes sense for us to give back in equal or increased measures.
In February 2020, Ramboll India decided to give back through the medium of a plantation-driven Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) campaign. “Let’s Plan(t) the World Better” was an environmental CSR campaign curated by Tapas Foundation under the sponsorship of Ramboll India.
The campaign worked on two fronts – knowledge building of employees through interactive sessions; and plantation drives across Delhi NCR to turn the employees into responsible citizens of this earth giving back to mother nature.
Over the course of two months, several interactive sessions and street plays were conducted, with prominent environmentalists as speakers, diving deep into terms and practices that are closely related to environmental conservation. This built up a space for people to learn and participate in understanding their responsibility towards the environment and how they could actively undertake it. Multiple fruitful sessions were conducted focusing on topics like ‘Global Warming and Climate Change’ and ‘Sustainable Living and Carbon Footprint’ with special emphasis on the ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDGs), specifically SDG 13 and 15.
This was supplemented with ambitious plantation drives in schools and parks around Delhi NCR, planting indegenious saplings of plants like Kaner, Chandni, Raat ki Rani, Gulmohar, Neem, Mango, Pilkhan and others to boost the growth of indegenious plants around the area.
The drives were a tremendous success gaining excellent employee involvement from Ramboll India and Tapas Foundation was able to spread the message to thousands through its on-ground activation and through our social media channels.
