Green Story of Humari Delhi

Green Story of Humari Delhi

In 2019, the Delhi government flagged off 200 sewer cleaning machines. These machines were given to skilled cleaning workers so that they would not have to enter the tanks and manhole or sewer to clean them. This vehicle and cleaning machine technology developed by Delhi Jal Board officials will make it easy to keep Delhi clean and our sanitation workers will also be safe.

In 2020, the government launched the Green Delhi app to control pollution so that residents of Delhi can report polluting activities from their mobiles.

In 2020 itself, the government announced the tree transplantation policy, according to which any department would have to transplant eighty percent of the trees to do the development work and also take care of them. For this, they have to seek help from a panel agency set up by the government. In addition to transplantation, ten saplings will also have to be planted with each tree.

The roads of Delhi are being dusted free through Mechanized Road Sweeping or MRS machines.

In 2017, pilot testing of anti-smog towers had been carried out in areas with polished areas like Anand Vihar and Connaught Place in Delhi.

In 2020 itself, the Delhi government set up a green war room set at the Delhi Secretariat to monitor the polling at 13 hot spots.

To clean the Yamuna river, Delhi Government held a review meeting with the Delhi Jal Board in November to reduce Yamuna pollution by 90 percent by March 2023. Delhi Jal Board shared a plan to use 400 MGD treated wastewater. At present 90 MGD treated wastewater had been used.

CPCB launched COVID19BWM Android App for biomedical waste management tracking and disposal.

But apart from these efforts of the government, what has the people of Delhi contributed to making Delhi clean and green.

“A Talk With An Expert” organized by SNEH International School with MGD Experts

SNEH International School organized “A Talk With An Expert” for the students of Classes 11 and 12 (Science Stream) as a part of ISA Activity ‘Every Step Counts-Carbon footprints’ on August 4, 2020 via a Zoom Meeting. Mr. Ajit Kumar, founder of Khushigram –a sustainable village and an active member of Mission Green Delhi; and Ms. Mrigya Mukaam, an environmentalist and a pioneer member of Mission Green Delhi, graced the occasion and guided the students.

Mr. Ajit Kumar interacted with the students and suggested various methods that could be adopted in our daily lives to help us reduce our carbon footprints. He also laid stress on increasing kindness footprint rather than carbon footprint and insisted on sharing and pooling resources to minimize waste. Ms. Mrigya gave simple examples of things we use not realizing the amount of resources involved in its usage just like a piece of chocolate.

Principal, Mrs Alka Mathur, encouraged the students to use electricity wisely as it is first basic step towards reducing ones carbon footprints. Vice Principal, Ms. Komal Dhingra, also gave many examples like that of online shopping that results in too much of packaging material and add to waste. This interactive session proved to be an enriching experience for the students as they actively participated in the discussion.
