In year 2000, the choice to go online for a sustainable future was a rare, difficult, novel one, made out of pure creativity and innovation. In 2020, going online is an easy but no longer a choice. It is the man-incited-nature-forced-need of the hour, to be able to sustain our very future! In 2020 the world has been turned on its head, we are held hostage to none but ourselves. But, then, the mankind is known to come to its best when challenged with utmost odds. From being turned on our heads, time to turn our heads to look ways for a sustainable future, rather than mere struggle to sustain our future somehow.
As Environment Online (ENO), that begun in 2000, celebrates 20 years of its existence, we try to bring us all together, to share our thoughts on our environment, something that we may have, willy-nilly, taken for granted.
On 21st September, on World Peace Day, which also coincides with ENO Global Tree Planting Day, ENO INDIA and ACT NOW bring you a 24:00 Hours long Web Symposium that will begin on 21st Sept 2020 at 12:00 HRS IST | 06:30 UTC and end at same time the next day.
The Web Symposium brings together the key stakeholders in planet earth - the thinkers and the doers, from around the world, over 100 countries, across all time zones. And, may be, gather a million participants! After all our 100 million trees campaign has proved to be the most concrete deed so far.
For us, sustainable development means environmental, economic, social and cultural well-being for today and tomorrow. There could be no sustainable development without education – education of both, the mind and the heart!
Environment Online transcends borders. In 20 years, it has been nurtured in over 150 countries, by over 10,000 schools, NGOS, government and private organizations and thousands of individuals, all voluntary – our currency is green and works everywhere.
We invite you to celebrate our living and deliberate on how to mould our lives to sustainable living. It is our lives, now or never. We need to Act Now!

Sub Themes (Themes are only suggestive and open in all sessions. The programme will be updated on event website)
¿The Green Is Not Enough (The green actions alone may not be sufficient. sustainable development means environmental, economic, social and cultural well-being for today and tomorrow. No questions arise here, only ideas needed!)  
¿National Curriculums Preach (Languages, Politics, Economics, Philosophy, Maths, and Sciences has been taught well. But, do we have a feeling that environmental education has been just preached?)  
¿Beauty Is Green Deep (It is no longer silk and smooth the definition of beauty. If sharing and caring is the essence of a woman, how about women breaking the policy paralysis in governments for tackling climate change?)  
¿It Is A Team Game (Are we playing together? Different governments, private organizations, corporates and individuals, though having same and good intent, seem to be at loggerheads with each other’s purpose. Unless this can be resolved, outcome is predictable, or rather unpredictable.)
¿Hope Lies In Youth (The ineffectiveness of governments across the world in dealing with climate change and implementing actionable policies, has angered youth. Would mere youth anger change ground realties?)
¿Color Of Economy (The bright color of our economies has, all of a sudden, turned dull when we can no longer use money the way we did a while ago. Is circular economy to be the norm to bring the color back to our economies?)
¿Make Every Scene A Lush Green (The media and the celebrities rule the mind and the heart of billions. The role they play on screen, will they enact concrete deeds for the lush greens too?)
(Check with your National Coordinator if there are any special awards in your country)
