It was sometime in June 2005 that the first stirrings of a new movement for trees began in Chennai.
Nizhal's vision is to be an effective catalyst in greening urban areas, with a special focus on regenerating biodiversity.
Nizhal believes that real progress in nature conservation demands sincere partnerships based on mutual trust with local communities, organizations and citizens, especially young people.
