The Pagdand Belief
Today, human beings, have without a doubt, established themselves as earth’s most dominant species. Down the ages, through our inventions, our actions, and our mere presence, we have been transforming our surroundings. Impacting the environment, and slowly but surely leaving a larger than sometimes necessary footprint on the ecosystem. Often forgetting that we are part of the very same system, not above it.
Using the same footprint and investing our efforts into walking a different path is what we do at Pagdand.
What started as an attempt to rekindle the child-like joy and amazement one gets through losing oneself in the wonders of nature, soon grew into a mission with a conscience.
Today, we are proud to present Pagdand as an independent, not-for-profit biodiversity conservation initiative.
A coming-together of committed individuals, a meeting of minds, a synthesis of intention and action, and a mission to walk the eco-talk.
Welcome to Pagdand.
And thank you for walking with us.
Pagdand is, in essence, a thought, an idea. a conscience-call even.
It’s not a structured concept, with well-defined edges and established parameters.
Like all thoughts, it promises to be organic, leading from one thing to another, encompassing one cause after another, as our steps take us further and farther into biodiversity conservation.
So, while its true scope can only be determined over time, and its direction can only be ascertained by our future thoughts and actions, here is the first step towards articulating our purpose:
- To Mainstream Eco-consciousness
- To Highlight Co-existence
- To Engender Eco-awareness
- To Sensitize, Educate and Energize Communities
- To Stimulate Public Thought, Dialogue and Action
To enable societal eco-awareness, biodiversity preservation and sustainable development through inclusive conservation.
- Biodiversity Conservation & Restoration Program (BCRP) – Trigger a movement to help restore and conserve urban biodiversity and rejuvenate natural and man-made water bodies.
- Environment Education & Awareness Program (EEAP) – Reignite eco-clubs in schools and bring back the focus on environment awareness and education.
- Environmental Policy Advocacy (EPA) – Work closely with local and regional government agencies to help formulate practicable and sustainable environmental policies.
