We deeply believe in training young people to be strong pillars of society – but we also need to ensure that there is a healthy environment able to support future generations. We promote the responsible use of nature’s resources and individual action to do one’s share for the good of the planet. Our project ‘Grow your future – plant a tree’ aims to build up the tree population worldwide, and in particular in the Punjab region of India.

Raj Academy Conservatoire, Naad Yoga Council and Ardaas have joined hands for this project. Our aim is to plant one million trees in five years and raise public awareness of the importance of trees for the survival of humankind. The tree population has been declining for centuries, while pollution has been increasing. Trees cleanse the air, produce oxygen, and in fact a certain level of forestation is necessary to ensure sufficient rainfall.

We have been turning a blind eye to the suffering of mother earth for too long, and all over the globe people are starting to feel the repercussions of climate change. NOW is the time to make a difference, and everybody can help!

Please support us by planting one tree every year, and have a hand in protecting the livelihoods of the future!
