Environmental, Social Justice & Governance Initiatives
Films & Documentaries
ESG projects and campaigns cover a wide range of issues, a common theme across which is that of encouraging community involvement in decision making regarding environmental and social justice concerns.
ESG organizes or participates in facilitating public meetings and workshops with the intention of raising awareness in the community, judiciary and government bodies about environmental issues, environmental law, and the citizens’ Rights.
Films and Documentaries are a medium through which we can disseminate information about our projects to a wide audience.
