How fast the time flies, look it has been six been six months working as 26th eco- generation regional ambassador. As I get involved in this platform, I am engulfed deeper to work for the betterment of environment. Here, I have presented my campaigns during my 6 months’ tenure.

I am Ms. Meena Pandey from Nepal and the ambassador for Asia. Taking this opportunity, I would like to request you to recommend me as the ‘The most inspirational ambassador of the 26th Eco-generation Regional Ambassadors’.


Sample of Recommendation: 
Meena Pandey is involved in non-governmental agencies creating awareness on having a peaceful environment. She is involved in projects such as planting of trees, use of 3Rs. Recently she conducted ‘Gift a plant to the Mother Earth’ campaign which was such a huge project, by seeing her passionate activities in the environment she has inspired so many young minds towards conserving the environment. She has been very much devoted and her reports were also relevant, awaring and recommendable. I therefore recommend Meena Pandey as the most inspirational 26th Eco-generation regional Ambassador. I hope selecting or judging panel will make wise decision on having her as the most inspirational ambassador. Other programs she has done are Zero waste campaign, One day webinar, Virtual conference on Small Mammals, Eco hub online magazine, etc.

………..

Below are some of the activities done by myself in past 6 six month as the 26th Eco-generation Regional Ambassador. However, you can see my activities in 24th and 25th ambassadorship.






-At 26th Ambassadorship Tenure- 

1) Release of COVID awareness related videos:
Nepal was reeling from the second wave of COVID-19 in Nepal started from mid-April 2021 and the daily infection rate has intensely increased to almost 10,000 persons per day from 300+ person per day within a month. I conducted this campaign so as to strongly urge others to stay safe, adopt safety measures and indulge yourselves to unfold your passion in those lockdown days. The main objective of the campaign was to convey the message to stay safe, adopt safety measures and indulge others to unfold your passion in the lockdown days.


2)  Organized Pictoword Puzzle series up to series III:

With collaboration with other Tunza Eco-generation Regional Ambassador for Nepal, Ms. Binita Suwal, Mr. Alok Dhakal, Ms. Dolma Diki Sherpa, we organized a thrilling game to entertain eco lover. Here we presented the pictures and others had to guess the word for it. We were told it was quite interesting, took little time leaving out of curiosity and exhilarating on participants.

We were overwhelmed to get 77 participants on our Pictoword Puzzle#1. The participants included participants from Nepal (n= 63), India (n= 3), Bangladesh(n=7), Korea (n=1), Lebanon (n=1), US (n=1) and Zambia (n=1). It was hard for us to decide winner with many of participants with correct answers and way they have put forward their view to the short question attached. And the winner of Pictoword Puzzle#1 was ‘Ms. Barsha Bista’. On the basis of the short questions attached after each puzzle, we assessed the existing environmental problem of different countries of the world and presented as a report in Tunza Website.

Based on the correctness of the puzzle and response to attached short questions, we declared Mr. Kaushal Niraula as the winner of pictoword puzzle series#2. Altogether we collected more than 150 amazing responses in the whole 3 series. We were really overwhelmed with the response we got and of course, with answers given by the responders. For the last series, we had Ms. Sahista Thapa as the winner.
 


3) Review paper published on Sustainable Intensification in Agriculture: 
An Approach for Making Agriculture Greener and Productive’ My review paper on ‘Sustainable Intensification in Agriculture: An Approach for Making Agriculture Greener and Productive’ was published under Journal of Nepal Agriculture Research Council. The paper was published after rigorous peer review by multiple set of reviewers. The paper work was completed on 11 August, 2020 and the comments of the reviewers was addressed on 13 March, 2021, and paper was published on 10 April, 2021.

Sustainable intensification of agriculture is a good approach for reducing the yield gap without exacerbating the current condition of the environmental components, which is a big challenge for agriculture in the modern world. This review provides a summary of the role and approaches of sustainable intensification in agriculture which offer ways to increase crop production and create long-term sustainability in agriculture production. New scientific techniques in agronomic practices, as well as improved farm mechanization, are helping to boost resource use efficiency in sustainable crop production. The sustainable agricultural intensification is necessary to increase the agricultural productivity under the changing and adverse climatic conditions while maintaining healthy production practices.

 
  

4) ONLINE CAMPAIGN OF SHARE YOUR ZERO WASTE LIFESTYLE 

 Being Tunza Eco- Generation Regional Ambassador to Asia and I was eager to hear others concept of Zero Waste lifestyle and share it with others so that they can apply it in their daily life. A small act of change can be the way to a big revolution. So, we urged others to share one or multiple zero-waste lifestyles. I reached as many people as I can.

Biodiversity is the cornerstone upon which we can rebuild better, from nature-based solutions to climate, health, food and water protection, and sustainable livelihoods The theme of International day for biological diversity, 2021 is "We're part of the solution #ForNature".

After that, I collected my neighbors and other people available at village and taught them on importance of planting and harmful effect we see after deforestation. All people were excited to join with me in afforestation campaign. We cleared some of the bushes, cleared plants that were of no use during 2 days. Around 40 plants were planted at the first day but due to rainfall we were not able to plant all trees that day. So, we planted remaining plants the other day.

Aslo I made them clear about what Tunza is, what does it do and what we have to do. Handling more than 100 persons in online was definitely not as easy as a piece of cake but I managed despite of crazy busy schedule of final exam of semester in collaboration with other ambassador.
 
If I missed some campaigns to report here undeliberately, I want to apologize. I hereby declare that all the campaigns are done and its progress and program report is presented in the website of Tunza Ecogeneration.
