Green the Red Dot with FORCS

Make your pledge today, FORCS has pledged to practice the following positive actions on 5th June 2017. Well, not just on 5th June, it’s in our DNA to carry out these activities as we are also advocating green causes. Join the movement with us by committing to actions that will reduce energy and resource consumption.
