Here you go!!!
Every country needs to have 25% of forestland where Bangladesh has only 17.50%. The density of dust has been increasing day by day. Climate has already been changed. Nowadays we have seen rain in the winter season. According to National Geographic, Bangladesh is one of the most vulnerable nations to the impact of climate change.
From this thought, VBD-Dhaka District has taken a good initiative. VBD-Dhaka District has brought an exciting project named ‘Green Roof’. The main theme of this project is to promote Rooftop Gardening as much as possible. Many of us think it’s an expensive & high luxurious thing. But actually, it’s not so much expensive & doesn’t need so much money to maintain it. To get rid of this thought, we VDB-Dhaka District are going to arrange a workshop on roof gardening.
After this workshop, our volunteers will go to schools & train the students on this phenomena & will tell them how important it is to reduce air pollution. We will train them how to maintain it in a proper way. We will inspire other people by going to their community. We will tell them how cost effective gardening at the rooftop is. Our volunteers will check up on them monthly.
It may look like a small step but think again but a roof gardening in every building in a city may help us to battle with climate change issue.
