we had a very successful event in Kaliyanwala village. The basic objective is to provide a platform in new dimensions for talented artists to work with locally available art material from nature to express themselves and create environmental awareness through art, but of late, it has taken a new initiative to involve children in the preservation of nature and environment. TellusArt adopted 140 poor children and Kaliyanwala village as well in Uttarakhand under its programme, “A journey of art interaction, creative workshops & exhibitions by global artists on climate change, nature and environment”. Ashram/School will be construct by TellusArt for these children. Under the programme, training is being provided in art to 140 children in the traditional ashram/school mode under the tutelage of masters. They are also involved in environment-related activities. For instance, they will carry out cleanliness drive in the village every Saturday. Each child is being motivated to plant at least two saplings, adopt organic farming, and conserve water and other such activities in this village.
