Fight Climate Change!!

Hi, I am Manav and if you are reading this let me tell a few facts-
Overall 600 million Indians will be moderately or severely affected by changes in temperature and rainfall, warned the new World Bank report released in June.

Most of the existing habitats of the Nilgiri Tahr in the Western Ghats will become unsuitable as global warming intensifies, projects a study by Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment.

Yak—the lifeline of pastoral nomads in high altitudes of the Indian Himalayan region—is facing the threat of gradually rising temperatures in the region.

Farming of 30 traditional crops has been abandoned in Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand in the last decade due to climate change and migration, said a study by Wildlife Institute of India, Dehradun.

The Economic Survey 2018 said climate change is taking a toll on India’s agricultural productivity and farmers’ incomes.
These are just a few facts out of hundreds of them which I could simply put up here. According to the UN and IPCC reports, we have time till 2030 to stop from crossing the tipping point from where it would be impossible to reverse the damage we have done to the Earth.

And we should be really concerned about this.

 I am starting this movement in order to inspire people by planting trees and starting an online challenge to motivate more and more people across all the social media platforms to take up the challenge and motivate others.
With 11000 INR which I am aiming to raise, I along with my college friends will plant 600+ trees across our city and each one of us will challenge other people to grow this campaign. This is the only time to save the world it’s a life-threatening emergency. Your contribution of mere 20 Rupees can help us to successfully run this campaign.

hey, guys extremely sorry for the delay in updates!
Last few days I talked to a lot of people regarding the place for tree plantation where there will be someone to take care of the plants.
I recently contacted an amazing person named Giridharan. HE is a social worker in Vellore. He is having contacts in orphanages and old age homes. He told me that we can cover all of the weeks by week.
Sooooooooooo
This weekend mostly on Saturday we will plant trees in one of the orphanages, Interact with kids there and inspire them to take care of the plants.
After the plantation, we will also discuss of taking this to the next level, form a proper structure and making it a wider movement !!!
Regarding transportation, as the nursery is 28 km from vit we are trying to arrange something other than auto as it will eat half of our funds. If any of your friends are having a car outside please ask them for help if they are interested.  
I will soon update you on further details!!
