    Sikh Green Team
    Filed under Green Team, Projectsno comments

    The environment and looking after the world we live in is a major part of the beliefs and values of Sikhism. We’re here on this world not for ourselves but to help and assist all others on this planet.


    The Sikh Green Team was put together to help educate the community on environmental issues. Various events have been held throughout 2010 to promote awareness and knowledge of environmental issues. Some of these events include:

    • Environment Fair, focusing on sustainable transportation;
    • Vaisakhi Sikh Parade Recycling Clean-up
    • Be the Change Seminars
    • New West Nagar Kirtan Recycling
    • Miri Piri Festival Recycling

    Future projects include the creation of an open community garden. This peer-led program will allow local residents, seniors and children alike, to part-take in the project. Temple official’s hope this project will help bridge a generation gap, pass knowledge between ages and reconnect the youth to the food they eat, while educating everyone on how to be environmentally conscious.

    More information on the Sikh Green Team will be available in the future at www.sikhgreenteam.com and you can volunteer or find out more information through greenteam@sikhyouth.ca or 604-561-9393

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!
