WHAT WE HAVE DONE?

TREES PLANTATION ON JUNE 2, 2019

 

INTRODUCTION

Global Village ConnectionThe Vision of Global Village Connection (GVC) is to create better world. How can there be a better world without making a consideration for our environment. Therefore, as Greener Earth Initiative, GVC organized plantations across the globe in the month of June 2019.

 

In Bhutan, June 2 is celebrated as Social Forestry Day as it is the coronation day of His Majesty, the fourth king of Bhutan. Conservation of environment is well placed in Bhutan’s pursuit of national progress and well being. Our Constitution requires that we have to maintain 60% forest cover at all times.

In Bhutan, we collaborated with few schools and other stake holders to do the tree plantations. The event was dedicated to World Peace and in Bhutan, it was specially dedicated to His Majesty the 4th  King for his long life and good health. His Majesty the 4th King of Bhutan deserves to be applauded and appreciated for his consideration for preserving the environment. His Majesty coined the idea of Gross National Happiness (GNH) whereby conservation and protection of environment has been included as one of the four pillars of the development philosophy. Bhutan has always placed conservation and protection of environment as very important. Environment screening and compliance are put in the framework of every  project approval and implementation.
