The sixth week of the OP at Nairobi, was dedicated to the study of The Emerging Cosmology through a Workshop facilitated by Fr. Robert Athickal SJ who is the founder of the Ecological Centre – Tarumitra (Friend of Trees), Patna, India. The theme of Ecology and Eco-spirituality was the highlight of the week.
On the first day, the work of Tarumitra was presented through a PowerPoint presentation. Some of the gleanings of what was shared with the participants, reflected how from very humble beginnings in 1988, the Centre has made an incredible journey of reaching out to thousands of students within the State of Bihar, it networks with 23 States in India, has an NGO Status in the UN and collaborates with other ecological international forums in bringing about a positive change on this planet. The entire presentation highlighted the ripple effect this organization has and continues to have on all those who engage with it.
