We are interested in rewilding severely degraded areas like abandoned mines, toxic sites (industrial and non-industrial), and revival of landscapes like grasslands, ponds, riverfronts, among others.
Through its afforestation network UPVAN, we are interested in rewilding severely degraded areas like abandoned mines, toxic sites (industrial and non-industrial), and rehabilitation and revival of landscapes like grasslands, ponds, riverfronts, among others. The concept of rewilding is relatively new, and whilst it offers great potential for reinvigorating conservation, and it is currently defined and approached in several ways by different actors. The key application of rewilding is ecological conservation and functional natural restoration through community ownership and management.
What We Wish to Seek
We wish to turn abandoned landfill sites along the Gomti river on Hardoi road green by planting saplings so when they grow the site becomes a lush green forest.
How Will It Work?
Solid waste disposal is a major problem in cities. Landfill sites are selected and once they are full of garbage they are abandoned and the process moves on. Such abandoned sites are not only environmental hazard, but also an eyesore to the people. If these sites are provided green cover, such a cover will reduce impact of environmental degradation and also beautify the place.
What Will We Do?
- Negotiating with the municipal and government authorities for our cause
- Fencing of the area so as to stop access of humans and animals to the site
- Planting saplings of mixed variety of plants on the site
- Ensuring that there is no human and animal intervention in the area
- Creating awareness among the masses to join our campaign
