Home / News

EWBN recently organized a one-day workshop titled “Grow Your Pocket Forest” in partnership with The Revolution Project, a youth-led organization dedicated to restoring ecosystems.

During the workshop, participants were introduced to the Miyawaki Technique for growing dense forests. The Revolution Project delivered an engaging presentation, highlighting the emotional connection to trees, emphasizing the importance of native species in ecosystem conservation, and providing practical guidance on establishing pocket forest

The workshop underscored the significant benefits of pocket forests in urban areas, not only enhancing visual appeal but also regulating temperatures, reducing air pollution, and promoting biodiversity, which are crucial for combating climate change.

Participants were encouraged to engage with nature through experiential activities, fostering empathy and introspection. Additionally, the workshop shed light on alarming environmental degradation, urging collective responsibility.

After dynamic discussions and reflections, attendees expressed gratitude, with one participant describing the workshop as unexpectedly essential. There was a unanimous agreement that workshops like these should be promoted by EWBN for their role in fostering community engagement and empowering individuals to drive positive change through awareness and action.

Encouraged by positive feedback, EWBN now plans to expand its workshop offerings, aiming to further engage and empower participants on a variety of topics as a part of our engagement and empowerment programs.

So, stay tuned!
