” Our entire campaign reinforces the strong interconnection between all the themes, hence the need to care for our precious resources like air, land, water and Biodiversity .
When we plant trees, we not only provide home to numerous spieces and birds but also invite rains and recharge the ground water, prevent soil erosion and thus protect our water bodies too.
Likewise the Sparrows help in pollination and also help in maintaining the balance in Eco- system.”
