A little about GreenLine

ABOUT US

GreenLine started in October 2010 with a long list of questions, and a nagging suspicion that maybe, greener people could be the key to a greener world.

Since then, our list of questions has grown longer, but so has our movement of greener people. Students, teachers, concerned citizens, and a host of other individuals and organisations are proving that sensible lifestyle choices and active involvement in civic issues can protect and improve the environment we live in.

OUR VISION

Greener People, Greener World

OUR MISSION

Getting people informed, interested and involved in environmental issues in Mumbai.

OUR APPROACH

We believe that creating the right space for people to become environmental contributors is important. And so we seek to be:

  • A platform that brings people together to explore eco-friendly lifestyles that positively impact the environment.
  • A forum that provides people the space to discuss their ideas and gain the support to actually implement them.
  • A movement that links together people who are passionate about protecting and promoting the environment.

We work towards this by conducting education-action programmes in schools, involving citizens in neighbourhood environmental initiatives, identifying and promoting green innovations by individuals and institutions, and partnering with organisations on environmental and civic issues.

Since our work is not restricted to fixed projects, we are always looking for new ideas. So if you have a green idea, innovation or even simply more questions, contact us.

OUR PROGRAMMES

We work towards our mission through our three flagship programmes:

Our Green Schools’ Campaign is focused on educating young minds on their responsibility towards the environment. We do so by providing them hands on knowledge, tools and skills which they can apply in actual ‘greening’ projects in their schools and neighbourhood.

Our second programme called Green Lead Volunteers is a programme for college or university students and young working professionals and works towards building future environment leaders, by involving them in relevant environmental projects.

Our third programme, the Green Lifestyle Initiative works towards enabling citizens adopt a lifestyle that reduces environmental damage and gets them actively involved in environmental protection. Along with these three programmes we also undertake multiple other projects related to environmental issues on an individual and collaborative basis
