Our newsletter will provide updates from our programs, our fellow Climate Reality Leaders who are making difference and how each one of us can act to solve the crisis. And, we would love to know your story and act of leadership, because every action does matter.

MEET N' GREET @PUNE

In the month of May, The Climate Project Foundation to host (TCPF) hosted a Meet N' Greet Session in Pune, Maharashtra. Most of our major projects are going on in Maharashtra; hence, we tried to enliven our pool of resources cum intellectual capital there. We have a good network of Climate Reality Leaders (CRLs) there. We had an interactive and insightful session with the CRLs at Hotel Novotel, Pune.

Several CRLs turned up for contributing towards a common goal. We discussed about the ongoing projects/initiatives while prioritizing the new ones in the pipeline. The tables were turned for discussions on how to map the road ahead.

WORLD BIODIVERSITY DAY

We share this planet with flora and fauna, which is indicative of our increased accountability of progressing on the path of sustainability and promoting co-existence with harmony. This World Biodiversity Day, with an oath to build a shared future for all lives, TCPF conducted a short social media campaign keeping the key message intact and sharing a series of blogs that put the spotlights on biodiversity. 

We have been actively engaging all our Climate Reality Leaders to participate in the collective goals; hence, the blogs on biodiversity presented here are shared by some of them. Also, we have introduced “photoblogs”, as a strategy for the blog segment to have more effective appeal on our stakeholders and we started with the theme, “biodiversity”. You can read these blogs

Green Jobs aim at striking a balance of working towards and environmentally sustainable, social and economic development.

The theme of the program was, “Planet Needs Green Jobs 2022.”

The objective of the program was to get the future generations / youth ready for green jobs available in the market by harping on skill-building exercises, constructive interactions with the domain experts to enhance employability dividends. All partners agreed to a more active participation bringing in latest trends, expertise, innovations, a mindful behavioral approach and how schools/colleges can act as the stepping-stones by driving young minds in this direction. More than 450 participants from India and South Asia attended it live and 4000+ hits have been coming on social media platforms who watched it later.
