Right from its inception, PGH has collaborated with other organizations and concerned individuals. In fact, in its early days, PGH got a boost from Dr. G. Nammalvar, the renowned environmentalist who worked for half a century on the environment and sustainable agriculture. From points such as choosing the species native to the region to aspects such as community involvement, Dr. Nammalvar guided PGH and played a key role as project advisor. His guidance in tree planting as well as the Isha Agro Movement – an initiative focusing on sustainable agriculture – is invaluable. Some of the other entities who have partnered with us are:

Tamil Nadu Education Department

The Green School Movement is a joint initiative of the state education department and Isha Project GreenHands. Thanks to their support, since 2011 the project has been implemented in more than 2,700 schools in Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry.

Pitchandikulam Trust, Auroville

Pitchandikulam came on board as the knowledge partner for Viluppuram Green School movement. Uniquely placed to share its deep knowledge and experience accumulated over the past forty years of eco-restoration work in the bioregion, Pitchandikulam’s practical involvement on the Green School Movement Project was two-fold.

Firstly, it provided expert training for teachers from each school, who are coming for training sessions to conduct training programs. Secondly, as part of the program, groups of children from the participating schools get an opportunity to visit Pitchandikulam to see a living indigenous Tropical Dry Evergreen Forest. They learn about what it looks like, its importance, its bio-diversity, as well as local environmental issues and solutions. The students learn through interactive activities such as bird watching, butterfly study, drama, puppetry, Q&As and interviews.
