On the occasion of Earth Hour 2021, CREASION organized a series of activities in Bharatpur, Chitwan with volunteers. The activities were conceptualized in alignment to the vision of Earth Hour to aware more people about the importance of protecting nature. Three interesting activities- Meditation with Nature, Give Back to Nature and a cleanup campaign were the main highlights.
Meditation with Nature was facilitated by Ek Raj Silwal and Pratistha Shrestha, Program Manager of CREASION. The session allowed the participants to connect with the five elements of nature and connect well through sight, sound, touch, smell and taste.
The session was followed by Give Back to Nature, a plantation activity in the premises of CREASION’S regional office site. A cleanup of the local community was then conducted with VFC volunteers of Kasara. The most encouraging part about this was the integration of the local communities and children. The participants also inspected the waste collected, identified the recyclables and learnt how waste could be used as a valuable resource.
