Eco- Roots Foundations is an organisation registered under the Indian Trusteeship Act as a Trust formed to work for conservation of Environment under the aegis of the renowned environmentalist Mr. Rakesh Khatri. A documentary film maker by profession but environmentalist by passion, he committed himself first to work on films on environment and then realised that he would be able to contribute much more in the form of this organisation.
The organisation is nothing but a medium to interact with more and more people in order to make them sensitive towards the issues of environment, hence motivate them to work towards environmental conservation. Small initiatives like tree canopy in the RWAs of East Delhi, environmental conservation was of course a major area of work for the organisation.
Further the Foundation explored that it would be an easy way to influence the influencers at home- the children and hence Environmental Education became a theme of the organisation. Here the passing of information is one medium but an equally strong medium is actually invoking the curiosity of the younger generation who would go about finding solutions to the world problems themselves.
“Not in sight, not in mind” is so true for the environment or our eco-system as well. Hence the foundation took on itself that it would introduce people to such beautiful aspects of eco-system that they would be forced to save it and conserve it or at least not destroy it any further. Hence Eco- Tourism became an important theme of the organisation.
