The event flagged off by the signing of eminent faith leaders and achieved the epitome of recognition when the President of the United Nations General Assembly, Mr. H.E. Mogens Lykketoft accepted the event on April 18. The photo collection includes the moments captured on our official rolling camera as well as the numerous media personnel and distinguished fraternities who were eager to take imprints of this historical event, meant for a geographical cause.
You can go through the photos here in our online reporting site as we arrange a big-stage demonstration of the albums soon in the public domain. The background workers who conceptualized and realized this statement was apprehensive initially as they were going to touch one of the most sensitive human emotions, that is, faith. However, when they approached the faith leaders, they were more than willing to contribute and encourage the event as they knew the ultimate positive impact it is going to have on this world and that the direction chosen is currently the ideal one. It is sure that if a list of Top 10 Binary Singals is made for environmental events, the event would make it to the most influential position.
With the first step of the event, the public support and governing support were tremendous that publicity was not required at the higher level. Recruiting volunteers was never included in the to-do task list as the followers of faith were more than happy and dignified to follow their leaders. By publishing these photographs and videos with due credit in the public domain, we intend to stretch this event deeper into the common society. When they see their leader, they will enquire the cause and may even join us without further motivation from our side.
