    AMRITSAR: It is a matter of proud for the all Amritsarites that Eco Sikh, an UN based organization, is going to launch an international campaign on ‘Green Amritsar’ from Wednesday onwards.

    Dr. Rajwant Singh (U.S.A) President of EcoSikh is on special visit to Punjab to launch the campaign and to celebrate third anniversary of ‘Eco Sikh’ here. He will visit Punjab and other states in India from June,13 to July,6.

    It is pertinent to mention here that Eco Sikh is a response from the Sikh Community to the threats of climate change and the deterioration of the natural environment. The organization arose as a part of the long term plans for Generational Change Programme initiated in 2009 by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Alliance of Religions and Conversation (ARC) to help the world’s major religious traditions create long term plans to improve their relationship with the environment.

    During the visit, he will meet with prominent Punjab’s Political and religious leaders. He will also be meeting social activists and conducting several consultative sessions with various government and non-government organizations to launch an international campaign on Green Amritsar.

    On June 30th EcoSikh will be celebrating its 3rd anniversary in Amritsar.
    Last year in November, Amritsar joined the Green Pilgrimage Network as one of the nine founding member cities. Former DC Kahan Singh Pannu and other delegation represented the city at Assisi and this effort was spearheaded by EcoSikh.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
