Kicking up a creative storm

Mother Nature gives all to her children so they may live well and flourish. However, human beings overuse, misuse and abuse all her resources leaving her drained and dying. This has been going on for so long and to such an extent that it now poses a threat to man’s continued life on earth. Spreading environmental consciousness has become the need of the hour.

Origin of a Creative Storm

•In 2009, Dileep Narayanan, Founder of Organic BPS, launched Greenstorm Initiative in association with United Nations Environment Programme.

•Through the power of creativity, Greenstorm aims at effecting appropriate behavioural changes among people.

•Through digital media, Greenstorm reaches out to the world, especially the youth and children.

Awards & Recognitions

Greenstorm has won several major national and international awards:

Greenstorm Foundation

After creating a positive impact in the society for 9 years, in 2018, a not-for-profit organisation, Greenstorm Foundation, was formed and registered as a public trust, and launched by the celebrated Film Director and Advertising Guru Sri. R. Balakrishnan (Balki) at Kochi.
