INSPIRED BY THE BANYAN TREE
The Banyan (ban.yan), a fig species found in India, is known for its wide leafy canopy and adventitious roots that reaches out to the ground for support as the canopy grows away from the trunk. In ancient times, the shade of the banyan tree was a place of rest, renewal and rejuvenation for weary travellers. The banyan tree was a symbiotic asset to the community. It symbolised solace, healing and a tranquil environment for exchange of wisdom and ideas to solve problems that impacted that generation. Stories were handed down from generation to generation around a banyan tree. GreenBanyan utilises these principles of community values and provides a platform to harness fresh ideas, critical thinking, problem solving and grass roots innovation to tackle problems of our generation.
