Being Volunteer’s Greenathon is an environmental initiative with support from L&T Infotech. The programme aims at planting and nurturing trees for carbon neutralization. The programme started in October 2018 with the aim of increasing the green cover of the planet. The goal is to plant 5000 trees and nurture them till they become self-sustaining. The idea is to cover the planet with trees by engaging volunteers.This initiative is being implemented at Mhalunge and Ram Tekdi, Pune. So far, a total of 7000 trees have been planted by volunteers. The programme clocked in a total of 2700 volunteering hours. Each volunteer led an enthusiastic group of another 30 volunteers towards the successful completion of the initiative. In total the drive witnessed a participation of 800 volunteers who walked a distance of 2 km to the designated area and planted 1000 saplings belonging to nearly 20 different plant species. The team kick-started the tree plantation drive by pledging with deep sincerity to always plant more trees and also nurture them. This was followed by dedicatedly planting the saplings in pits that were dug prior to the plantation drive.
Short duration (2-6 hours) volunteering opportunities for on-field social work, planned mostly on weekends.
