Invitation: Delhi Urban Ecotourism Bus Trip
Delhi Greens introduces a first of its kind Urban Ecotourism in Delhi during the 48C Public.Art.Ecology Festival !!
The Urban Ecotourism Bus trip seeks to explore the natural heritage of Delhi and re-connect the citizens of Delhi to the green spaces in the city and highlighting lesser-known sites of ecological significance.
Delhi is known to be one of the greenest capital cities in the world. The city’s tree cover and the green spaces support a varying degree of urban biodiversity, unique to the National capital Region (NCR) of Delhi. The city has several big and small green patches, in addition to the Ridge and the Yamuna river flowing through it. The NCR also comprises a few protected areas, urban and rural villages, lakes and large number of water bodies.
Yet the ecotourism potential of the city is little understood, and least explored. Add to that the landfills, the resettlement, unauthorized colonies, the drains and the political ecology of urban planning & development – and we touch upon all of conservation, education, traveler responsibility and active community participation – needed to make an ideal ‘URBAN ECOTOURISM’ trip to the most majestic city of all times!
Delhi Greens and the 48C Public Art Ecology Festival team invite all those who have ever been fascinated by Delhi, or are interested in urban environments and even those who are simply amazed by cities in general!
The three urban eco-tour bus trips, to North, East and South-Central Delhi, will also attempt to touch upon the political ecology of the city, and vividly illustrate the glory of one of the most magnificent cities of all times!
COME TAKE THE URBAN ECOTOUR….EXPERIENCE DELHI – AS NEVER BEFORE!

Interesting post! My image of big cities in India is billions miles away from ecotourism. Do you have any figures/stats/studies that could put forward the green side of Dehli? Thanks
