Rapid urbanisation has made it critical for us to conserve the environment, now more than ever. Accountability is the need of the hour and creating a database of all the trees ought to be a good start. The Living Heritage App is the way forward as it enables you to geo-tag trees, do health checks and send S.O.S. Join us this Friday for a brief introduction of the App followed by a panel discussion on how the App can be instrumental for conservation, education and litigation among other things.
