Puri: Keeping in line with its vision to create awareness on sustainable living, environment protection and ecological conservation, Tata Housing, India’s fastest growing real estate Development Company tied up with the internationally renowned Sand Artist Sudarshan Patnaik to celebrate World Environment Day through his art work in Puri.
Based on United Nation’s theme for World Environment day 2014, ‘Raise your voice, not the sea level’ esteemed artist Sudarshan created a unique sand sculpture depicting the importance of protecting the environment and building eco-friendly homes at Sudarsan Sand Art Institute, Puri. The objective of this initiative was to spread the message of conservation and enhancement of nature, raise awareness and encourage citizens to take action and help reduce the potential impacts of climate change.
Speaking on the Tata Housing’s initiative, Mr. Rajeeb Dash, Head-Marketing, Tata Housing said, “As a member of the Tata Group, Tata Housing aims to abate climate change with a sense of shared responsibility and has started tracking its own carbon footprint in order to reduce carbon emissions. We at Tata Housing have pioneered the concept of sustainable living with development of green homes since it’s revival in 2007. In-line with our continuous efforts towards conservation of nature and ecological growth, we have joined hands with Padma Shri Sudarshan Patnaik to create awareness about environment conservation through art.”
