“I don’t think we will survive another 1,000 years without escaping beyond our fragile planet,” said the great Physicist Stephen Hawking. Looking at the current scenario, it is easy to tell that global warming will be a far more threat to the planet than terrorism.
In a noble initiative to save earth from the ravages of global warming and climate change in the Leh district of Jammu and Kashmir, the Buddhist Monks are planting 15,000,000 saplings at a time.
In this video shared by Brut India, it was seen that Monks, as well as resident volunteers, are doing their bit to preserve Himalaya’s ecosystem, that has almost become fragile. Their group- Go Green Go Organic aims to plant trees and help farmers to opt for organic methods.
Through the plantation program, it demonstrates and ensures the protection of the environment. The group has already planted more than 3 lakhs and they are looking forward to a large scale plantation- which is more than one and a half crores in Ladakh and will cover the whole area.
This cold desert region got affected due to tourism boom over the years and is stripping tree cover, which in turn is causing erosion. Further, reduction in precipitation due to the scarcity of water and climate change. This resulted in the flash floods in Leh that killed 250 people.
The video ends with a note that – Go Green Go Organic is trying to plant the seeds of a better future.
Making the earth green is everyone’s responsibility and if you want to come forward, well- “Be the change you want to see in the world”
