World Environment Day, 2013

5th June 2013 was designated as world environment day.

We at Raja Rajeshwarinagar I Care, in Bangalore, co-organized an event called WUCU - Wake Up, Clean Up Bangalore. The event brought together on one side the citizens of RR Nagar who produce solid waste, with the focus on bulk producers like flats, hospitals, schools and colleges, hostels, hotels, malls and food joints, marriage halls, large traders etc etc, and on the other the authorities in local governance like the local corporator, the Supdt Engineer, the Health officer, etc. We had also invited the solution providers for converting wet waste into compost or gas, and dry waste recyclers so that very little goes into the land fills.

Presentations were made by the citizens groups, solution providers and the authorities towards working together to reduce/eliminate burdening and viciating the environment.

The event was hosted by Mind Tree at their beautiful premises in our neighborhood and it culminated into planting 5 trees at their premises.

The evening was meaningfully spent.

In the meanwhile I saw this film on the site of Karma Tube, and thought I should share it on this blog.

A film by Chris Jordan.

Hope the film could stir something inside. Take Action.
