The Campaign in this name will attract many people in India and abroad including ‘The Trillion Tree Campaign'. The GOD tree campaign is being promoted with planting of 100 selected RET trees in degraded private and community forest lands including sacred groves. The Campaign has high relevance in the context of the UN decade (2021-2030) on Eco-restoration and the SDG 15.
Cherish Expeditions Sacred Grove Warriors and students will undertake the restoration of the selected groves. Restoration of the degraded ecosystems and connecting the fragmented forests has become urgent in the Western Ghats- the most densely populated global biodiversity hotspot. The UN has declared 2021 to 2030 as the decade of eco restoration with a set of targets to be achieved by taking combined actions.
The team will engage in educating the concerned Local Self Governments to achieve the following 6 targets of the SDG 15.
The data compiled under this project will be used by the team to prepare evidence-based case study materials meant for communication, education and public awareness.
