The Invis Multimedia crowdforesting team regrets to inform you that Prof. (Dr) Akira Miyawaki is no more.
He passed on, after prolonged illness, on 16 July, aged 93. The funeral rites were done by his family on 23 July.
The Master Forester has been the chief inspirational force behind all our afforestation activities so far, and will continue to do so, perhaps with greater potency. It's our pledge to realize his dreams and make the earth greener, healthier and happier so that the coming generations may enjoy the gifts of Nature.
Till nearly the very end of his life, he was constantly immersed in finetuning the eponymous methodology that redefined humanity's fight against climate change. With his online presence, Prof. Miyawaki presided over our afforestation programme at Chalai School in Thiruvananthapuram on his birthday in 2020. It was our way of celebrating his 92nd birthday. Unfortunately, this was his last virtual public presence.
His forests have left an indelible mark on future generations as they form the vanguard in a rapidly evolving struggle against many debilitating environmental crises. Today, our entire Crowdforesting initiative pays homage to this iconic soul, whose simplicity and vision inspire us to revamp and rehabilitate our precious Mother Earth.
May his soul rest in peace.
