The Theosophical Society headquartered in Adyar will focus on building an online presence, Tim Boyd, international president of the society, said here on Thursday.

Addressing presspersons, Mr. Boyd, who recently took charge as the eighth international president, elaborated on his plans for the society. Besides developing web presence, he also plans to maintain the ecology of the campus.

Over the years, number of birds visiting the campus has dwindled from 90 species to nearly 40 species owing to the polluted Adyar river.

Mr. Boyd also proposes to include more youngsters in voluntary services. The society runs schools and conducts training programmes. The vocational training centre will be enhanced with more programmes. More workshops and lectures will also be organised to promote religious harmony and universal brotherhood.

The Society has over 25,000 members spread over 70 countries. Of this, Chennai has 1,009 members. Mr.Boyd will serve as international president for a term of seven years.
