Green Influence Programme
The Green Influence raises awareness about environmentally sustainable practices for individuals, businesses, and communities, particularly in urban areas. Like many countries in Asia and throughout the world, Cambodia and India struggle with environmental protection and preservation. The Green Influence programme has three objectives:
Raise awareness about environmental issues that affect Cambodia’s urban areas
Collaborate with businesses and NGOs to implement and improve strategies to reduce their impact on the environment in urban areas
Educate young people about the importance of practicing sustainable behaviour to improve their communities
Soulcial Trust launched its Clean Green Cambodia Eco Workshops in early 2017. The objective is for visitors to Siem Reap to make their journey more eco-friendly by participating in different environmental workshops and initiatives. Along with our NGO partners, we educate visitors on sustainability and environmental issues to reduce their environmental impact.
Soulcial Trust coordinates the Siem Reap Green Committee, a collaboration of businesses, organisations, and individuals who are dedicated to making Siem Reap a cleaner, more beautiful city. Together with our partners, we coordinate various initiatives that address some of Siem Reap’s most pressing environmental problems, such as trash in the streets, an over-reliance on single-use plastic, and negative environmental effects of tourism. In January 2018, the Siem Reap Green Committee launched Clean Green Cambodia, a website platform to inform and educate the public on how to be more environmentally friendly in Cambodia.
Disabled people are not unable or incapable; we are simply differently abled or specially abled. This doesn’t prevent us from getting down and clearing up trash. We see the Swachh Bharat mission as fundamental to India today and we are proud to be able to participate, just like any able-bodied person can and should.” -Guddu, Operations Manager, India
Soulcial Trust launched Swachh Bharat (Clean India) missions in Delhi in 2015. The project involves people with and without disabilities participating in city clean-ups in Delhi. The aims are to clean up Delhi’s most beautiful parks of the trash littered along the paths and in the bushes, and to illustrate that a clean India is the responsibility of ALL citizens: young and old, male and female, with and without disabilities.
