Creating an urban forest – the story of ‘Say Trees’

Well, the start of the year 2020 has been really tough, no matter where you are in the world you are definitely facing some challenges in your daily lives. Yes, I cant miss mentioning the impact of the spread of Corona virus around the world. Well, for a long time and maybe just for the first and last time in our lifetime we will see the entire world being united against one cause, to fight this deadly spread. Just a request, take a moment to think of the people in the front lines who are helping us get over this. All the people who are working over time to ensure we win the battle against this. We will get over this!

But as always there are interesting stories from around the world, stories that’ll make you feel good any day and on this episode you’ll hear of one such story. What made a software engineer get so passionate about planting trees on weekends? How did he then scale it up to create urban forests and more such projects? Listen to Kapil Sharma, founder of Say Trees share his story on this episode of the Mission Shunya podcast.
