Get Involved

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.

Securing the GreensThe 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.

  3. Hi,

    Really its a great initiative. Everyone should involve in such a fine work. Though I could not contribute for delhi’s environment but from Rajasthan I will be always with the group to activate such initiation and work for the root cause. Since environment is not localized and impacts of activities in other areas may affect the set up of other place so I will try my best to work in Rajasthan on the same issues whichj were raised by the group.

  4. Hie, I just wanted to bring to your attention the problem of solid waste management in Delhi. According to the CPCB report, the MCD spends around Rs 2000 crores(thats rite!) in solid waste management every year. Still enough is not being done..Our landfills are overflowing and there is a need to identify new landfill sites and also adopt waste to energy models at the landfill sites. I wrote in because this is an issue that needs serious attention from all Delhiites. Hope you take up this issue in your blog and reach a wider audience.

    regards,
    deepak

  5. Dear Deepak,
    Thank you for your information and feedback. At a smaller scale, we’ve been promoting recycling, directly got involved with the Delhi Freecycle Network and have been making efforts to engage people in discussion on optimal resource consumption.

    And we do realize that the issue needs to be tackled on a larger scale and we have initiated some capacity building measures that you will soon hear of.
