Say Earth

Our Story

Say Earth is a team of Environmentally conscious youth who have embarked on a journey of transformation. Although they belong to different backgrounds, Say Earth’s team is united in their motivation by a strong desire to check the rapid change of a liveable natural landscape to one dominated by concrete and other by-products that have grown to symbolize human progress and development, often devoid of any hint of life! 

Led by young Environmentalist, Mr. Ramveer Tanwar, the team inspired by the Principles of Sustainability and Co-existence, strongly believes in nature’s authority, and has faith in its self-healing properties. Determined to play the role of facilitator in the quest to restore ecosystems that are degraded due to anthropogenic destruction, the organization constantly endeavors to rejuvenate ponds and create forest ecosystems that have been perilously impacted by urbanization and industrialization. To date, we have restored more than 60 ponds to their former glory and created 4 urban forests. 

Beginning of the Journey

Say Earth is a non-governmental organization working for the restoration and rejuvenation of ponds & the afforestation of urban and rural landscapes. Constituted in the year 2020 by the “Pondman of India”, Mr. Ramveer Tanwar, the organization has come a long way in the field of conservation of natural ecosystems and has been able to restore more than 80 waterbodies and plant 6 forests, especially in the urban landscape.
