On June 24, 2023, representative members of BSG volunteered to organize a workshop for women from economically impoverished section of society, supported by Pedal On, and trained them on the urgency of conserving the environment.

The participants learnt about the stories of ordinary people from around the world who stood up to protect the environment, such as Dr Wangari Maathai’s Green Belt Movement in Kenya; Chipko Movement in Garhwal, and the Narmada Bachao Andolan.

The participants were also introduced to the concept of 3Rs – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – and how everyone can follow the 3Rs at home and work.

After the session, the participants determined to revisit their daily routine and keep a track of how they can modify their behaviour which is harmful to the environment and adopt a more sustainable lifestyle instead.
