At DYSoC’08: Bittu Sahgal – A life dedicated to inspire young minds for green action.
The Earth Heroes initiative is a joint effort between Sanctuary and RBS to honour the extraordinary achievements of ordinary people. There are many unsung heroes out there. The Sanctuary-RBS Wildlife Awards is an attempt to let the world know that amongst us live women and men who work overtime so that the vast majority can sleep peacefully without worrying about water, oxygen, food or climate change.
Here’s an opportunity for all Delhi Greens Blog readers to nominate worthy nature defenders that you may have come across for the forthcoming Sanctuary-RBS Wildlife Awards. People who have helped protect the natural legacy of India for current and future generations. In recognizing their remarkable achievements with the 2010 Wildlife Award, the hope is to inspire many more ‘ordinary’ people to do a few more extraordinary things for the fragile planet we call home.
And you can help the Planet in making these magnificent human beings to become role models for the next generation by nominating them. Here’s your chance to help save our environment and wildlife. If you’ve been touched by a good green work, inspired by a green action, moved by hearing out or discussing issues and solutions with someone, you can let her/him inspire many more.
