The Delhi Greens Blog was founded by Dr. Govind Singh in March 2007 making it Delhi’s first Environmental Blog Project. The Delhi Greens Blog is an ICT Tool for generating environmental awareness for ensuring the protection of Our Common Environment. The Blog spearheads the environmental cause from the time when environmental journalism was only being introduced into the mainstream media and environmental activism was barely acknowledged.
The Delhi Greens Blog was a knee-jerk reaction to two separate yet related incidents, along with the love and passion for Delhi and trees. It has since inspired many others to use Blogging as a tool for generating environmental awareness. This led to a chain reaction of Green Blogs further boosting the environmental movement.
