Greenhood Nepal is a youth-led environmental organization that educates and engages young minds and local communities in environmental conservation. It believes, the wise use of natural resources today is the only way for the sustainable future. In this sense, our activities aim to create positive impact for people and nature; hence to promote the conservation optimism. We engage actively on a regular basis to address emerging problems and try to find out impactful solution via the community engagement in dialogues, group discussions, etc.; the recent example of our work is the celebration of Roundtable on Pangolin series.
The journey of Greenhood Nepal to date, has itself been very optimistic. It was founded by few Nepalese university students, who were outraged by the conservation related problems in the country. During the establishment of Greenhood Nepal, Nepal was facing massive problems; poaching of one-horned rhino and illegal trade of red sandalwood are few to name. With self-optimism, it managed to come to this point where it is considered as one of the impactful conservation groups in Nepal.
Being a part of Conservation Optimism, a platform with similar motives of conservation, we want to encourage the young graduates of environment by sharing their “conservation action stories” to the world wide wider audiences. When our messages of conservation are widespread across all the channels, this will encourage similar other organization and contribute in conservation. This means, any conservation action at a corner of the world will encourage another organization to replicate or experiment similar action in other parts of the world; both benefiting the natural resources.
