Delhi is at the crossroads. Like it or not, the city is being transformed into a “World class city”. We must ensure that our transition is not based on unsustainable policies – policies whose repercussions we would face well into the future. It is upon each one of us to ensure that Delhi does not undergo an unplanned development, but lead the pack on the concept of “urban re-development”. A re-development that is based on sustainable and efficient use of resources, of city planning based on the principles of new urbanism and in the understanding that we are developing in a climate constrained world.
The first step in getting involved is to keep yourself informed. Find out what’s happening in your neighbourhood, and in the city. Read the blog, surf the Internet, read the newspapers and listen to the news. However, DO NOT take things at their face value. Scrutinize what you read and analyze what you hear; to identify and dissect out the non-green lobbyists, who are more keen to make a quick buck today, at the cost of a safer tomorrow.
Keep watching the blog and participate in the green events and discussions that take place in the city from time to time. Also register yourself with the large number of active city-lover groups and participate in activities such as Heritage Walks, Bird watching trails, Sunday theater, etc. Click here to subscribe to the blogfeed and get updates (no more than one email per day) in your mail.

Alert citizens are especially encouraged to contribute about the status of environment in their neighbourhood and anything that need to be brought to the notice of the general public and the authorities. Please include at least two images (if applicable) with each submission. Stand alone images that make a powerful statement are also welcome. After all, a picture’s worth a thousand words!
