TARUMITRA ECO-FEST IN ATTAPPADI KERALA
Tarumitra, a movement initiated by a group of children and Patna Jesuit Society under the leadership of Fr. Robert Athickal, SJ in 1988 as a Forum for Environment with wide network across the country (India) has made remarkable contributions in the protection of environment. The Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations has granted a Special Consultative Status to Tarumitra from Jan 2005. Tarumitra as an organization and movement has been networking with students across the country creating awareness and action on issues such as water, organic farming, vehicular pollution, green belts, eco-spirituality, conservation of bio-diversity, conservation of electricity and promotion of renewable energy.
Tarumitra has initiated several bio reserves and eco centers. The Jesuit Province of Kerala’s Tarumitra wing organized Eco-Fest 2017 in Attappady, Kerala. Hundreds of students, environmentalists and social activists from across the country participated in the fest. One such fest just is concluded.
Thanks to Fr. Lenin PS and Fr. James Morais and all associated with Tarumitra Family for such a successful and impactful eco-fest.
