Greenathon (green-marathon), a tree-plantation drive to promote environment conservation and will aim at promoting the benefits of the same. This is because given the global warming and several other environmental issues, conservation has become the much required wake-up call of the hour and needs to be dealt with at the widest possible scales in the country.
The global green cover has been rapidly decreasing over the past decade. India itself has lost tree cover of 16 lakh hectare in the last 17 years. Forests are home to many indigenous species which are critical to maintaining the balance of the ecosystem. With fewer trees, endangered ecosystems, and the climate crisis looming large, we need to collectively make up for the lost green cover.
