Every year, across the globe, National Geographic undertakes initiatives to create awareness about conservation and global warming. Come September, the channel will launch the Green Conclave, a national platform to discuss the path forward for our planet.
The conclave will comprise of panel discussions on India’s position on the relevant issues related to environment and conservation.
It will bring together India’s political, business and corporate leaders, conservationists and celebrities, under one roof for the first time to discuss the future of our planet and our role going forward.
The Green Conclave will also showcase India’s Eco Heroes, which is an initiative by Nat Geo to acknowledge work that ordinary people across the country are undertaking to make a difference to our planet. These Eco Heroes will be recognised and awarded at the Conclave.
The registration process started on August 4. Says Keertan Adyanthaya, managing director NGC, “Environment is becoming a cause for the entire world. Through this initiative, Nat Geo will bring together leaders of the nation under one roof to discuss their contributions and responsibilities towards a greener planet.
The Eco Heroes campaign is a great platform to identify and know about the work of various people who have realised the solutions for saving the environment and the planet”.
