Featured Team – Rahul & Rohan Raju’s Happy Planet Initiative

We started Happy Planet Initiative through which we are doing good work to help fellow Human beings, Wildlife and the Environment. This is what we have been doing:

  • Under RR’s Happy Planet Initiative, for the last three years, we have distributed food packets to construction workers on the eve of the holy month of Ramadan and brought awareness to eliminate food wastage, reduce the waste that goes to landfills, reduce carbon footprint and save the planet from global warming. We also donated clothes to the needy in U.A.E & INDIA. We donated new clothes for Kerala flood victims in August 2018.
  • Weare compassionate about helping people in need. We donated some of our art works and paintings for charity purposes. Some of the profits went to UNHCR to help the Refugees and the rest to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
  • We were invited to exhibit the Artworks at the Emirates Natural History Group (ENHG) 40thanniversary graced by HH Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan.

The main aim of the ENHG is to encourage and assist members and other interested individuals in the study and appreciation of the natural history and archaeology of Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates, the Middle East and the world at large.

  • We were invited to exhibit the artworks at The Festival-Masdar Cityand bring awareness about sustainability and renewable energy.The largest sustainability gathering in the Middle East, Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) is dedicated to furthering our understanding of the major social, economic and environmental trends shaping the world’s sustainable development and to empowering the global community to realise viable and effective strategies to mitigate climate change.
  • We participated in the Earth Hour event to take action for our planet and the ReThink Plastic Campaign to increase awareness of the harmful effects of plastic pollution; the consequences of throwing away plastic bags and how households can change the growing problem of unnecessary waste.
  • EEG appreciated our (EEG Members) efforts in the Earth Hour event and especially towards the “Paper Walk Challenge” that resulted in the collection of 5,483 kg of paper, which contributed to saving 93 trees from being felled and mitigated 21 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
  • We have been spreading the message of HH Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan to save the Environment
  • We took part in a Roots & Shoots Climate Force Challenge to help Sir Robert Swan to achieve the target of reducing carbon emissions by 326 Million tonnes by 2025
