CHAIRPERSON’S MESSAGE “Together for a better environment”.. is the core idea around which all of our pro-environmental activities are woven. It is the common thread that brings educational institutions, private companies, government organisations and community together to contribute to the betterment of our environment by engaging into its innovative programmes. I entered into the environmental awareness field in late 1980s, with an inner calling to create and establish a system for a whole new generation of environmentalist. My ideas took shape of EEG in 1991 with the support of my colleagues and friends. Since then our journey has been chartered by a commitment to relentlessly widen our horizons, deepen our base and work to accelerate the pro-environmental wave in the country. I would like to acknowledge the support of our collaborators, government agencies, international bodies, corporate members, academic instituitions and the thousands of parents and children who are a part of, and responsible for this organisation’s success. We invite you to come on board and be a part of our movement, to enrich with experiences and support for greater heights of achievement. Let’s start working Together for a Better Environment!
