I hope you are keeping well.
It is with great pleasure that I would like to announce our Alumni event in Bangalore!
Shell India Markets Private Limited has extended an invite to our Nuffic Neso India team to attend the inauguration event of their ‘Urban Forest’ on 30th July, 2019.
Above, you can see the land use statistics and the steady decrease of the green cover in Bangalore over the last 40 years, from 68.2% in 1973 to an alarming 6.46% in 2017! We are all aware that our green spaces are shrinking and temperatures are rising, but can we do something about it as individuals and communities? Absolutely! And that is something we will get to learn more about when we attend this event. You will get the opportunity to learn how to create a forest that would grow 10 times faster and 30 times more biodiverse than an a naturally growing forest. You can create this forest in your backyard, garden or any piece of land. Intrigued?
Join us to learn more on how this methodology works and meet with the pioneer Shubhendu Sharma (reference: Ted talk at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BgPFIKCaOQ ) who is the founder of Afforestt – the team that collaborated with Shell team to create the forest. You, my dear alumni, will also get a chance to experience planting saplings on site using this technique. ????
Please note, the event could take a full day and we are organizing a bus to leave from Central Bangalore to the Shell Campus located out of the KIADB Industrial park (https://goo.gl/maps/2UKHxTpqgJwRKxAt5) at approximately 9 AM on 30th July. We will attend the inauguration proceedings, interact with the Afforest-Miyawaki teams and also engage in a small plantation activity. Lunch will be arranged for our team at the campus itself. Once the program is over, we will return back to Bangalore city using our bus.
We will be providing more information about the event and logistical details shortly. But in the meanwhile, please register for the event so that we can make all the necessary preparations.
To register, please RSVP your acceptance ASAP.
We at Nuffic, are gladly looking forward to hosting you at this event, but we cannot do it without your participation, enthusiasm and questions. So please register and let us make this event a mega success!
