Every 3 seconds the world loses forestation as expansive as a football field. Over the last few years, consumerism has grown exponentially and hence, depleted resources faster than ever before. In an attempt to bring some balance, the UN offered a global platform to inspire positive change through greener alternatives, sustainable products and environmental repair.
The hashtags #Reimagine, #Recreate and #Restore have become some of the most used ones to drive environment based engagement among employees in the corporate world.
Participants indulge in making virtual movies based on the theme “Ecosystem Restoration” in this activity. Once the participants have completed the activity, their movies are screened and rewarded in a highly engaging Award Ceremony, including unique titles like Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Dancer, Best Story, etc.
Participants are introduced to the idea of microgreens and gardening at home. The activity’s objective is to help the participants grow useful plants at home and develop a deeper connection with Mother Nature. This also creates stronger peer relationships as they get to know each other beyond work-related topics and connect better.
This activity is designed for highly energetic teams that love to solve problems and challenges. The virtual activity has a customised set of puzzles that teams must solve to win! It covers interesting and unusual facts, that leaves the participants rich with applicable ways of Ecosystem Restoration.
Teams are invited to compete against each other with ideas around greener alternatives that could be used in the workplace. In this virtual activity, teams brainstorm and present their ideas that can make a difference. The ideas are then shared on Social Media of respective corporate firms helping others to cherry-pick the best-suited ones. Through the activity, teams are facilitated with skills like storytelling, presenting, innovating and networking ideas.
An innovative way to involve employees in a month-long engagement program where they compete against each other virtually.

The program includes different experiences like Speaker Session, Knowledge Sharing, Team Building, Experience Sharing etc. The special day becomes an opportunity for the teams to take a break, connect and spend time together.
The below-mentioned gifts can be easily ordered online to employees’ addresses, making them safe and accessible:
One of the best gifts is an experience that lasts forever. Gift your teams a team building session that allows them to connect, create, and communicate with each other. Ensure that the events are filled with fun and laughter. Remote team building exercises also help employees to develop useful skills like collective decision making, problem-solving, critical thinking and many more.
Considering Environment Day, alternate daily use items can be amazing gifts for employees. Eco-friendly items include toothbrushes, straws, water bottles, shopping bags etc. These gifts can eliminate the use of plastics and bring more awareness to consumers.
Kits including basic gardening tools, plants and pots are other ways of gifts for employees. These kits prove to be a kick-starter for people starting to grow organic veggies and microgreens.
You can gift your employees the Joy of Giving by associating them with organisations that work towards Ecosystem Restoration. This way you can help employees to contribute their part in restoring the natural environment.
If you have had new hires in your organisation recently, you can club World Environment Day and Virtual Induction to plan a grand welcome for your employees.
