Dwarka Celebrated World Environment Day With Greenothon
World Environment Day was celebrated in Dwarka through the organisation of Greenothon, a cycling event on theme, “Care for Delhi’s Air”! The event was organised by the Greenlco Eco Foundation and brought together thousands of Delhiites to cycle and show the path to a green future.
The Greenothon cycling event covered a distance of 10 km and was organized with full support and cooperation from Delhi Police, MCD and the DDA. A thousand cycle enthusiasts thronged the venue while many others came to cheer the participants.
The event was thoughtfully organised and the cycle run was divided in two categories: junior and seniors. The cyclists were escorted by the Delhi Traffic Police and three ambulances. The junior round was approximately 2.5 km and the purpose here was to promote cycling as a way of life in young minds.
The cycling rally was followed by distribution of medicinal plants to the participants through the Delhi Parks and Gardens Society, NCT of Delhi. Greenlco Eco Foundation now plans to carry forward this movement to all parts of Delhi.
