Get ready for the second edition of Ascencia’s green project! Launched in 2019, the INI’Vert initiative aims at sensitising Mauritians on environmental issues… Renewing its ecological commitment, the group, along with several organisations, are planning several activities in the shopping malls of Ascencia.
“Green Today, Great Tomorrow”
This is the main theme of the INI’vert 2020 program. Accompanied by the gecko (the mascot of the event), many activities have been scheduled until the end of July. Among them, the Bis Lamer (a mobile education centre managed by Reef Conservation to introduce Mauritians to marine biodiversity), as well as a video by the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation on conservation and biodiversity, with a focus on reptiles. Guests shall enjoy several activities, namely events with eco-conscious stakeholders on the island, such as Kan Chan Kin, or even Precious Plastic Mauritius and its recycled materials. Also on the agenda: Green Corners, with exhibitions to visit absolutely, as well as a special mission called Trash is Treasure—a waste collection activity in Beau-Vallon for recycling purposes.
“Our INI’VERT campaign takes place this year in a particular context, whereby the importance of taking care of ourselves and of our environment is key. More than ever, we realise the value of those around us. All the activities this year shall be dear to every Mauritian, as it will reinforce the messages conveyed on environmental issues and on the urgency of uniting our efforts. This is why INI’VERT collaborates with several GREEN stakeholders who contribute in their own way to the preservation of a better environment for all”, underlines Simon Harel, the Asset Manager at Ascencia.
