Who made this ?
Two NGO’s from Delhi, Green Circle and New Delhi Nature Society, collaborated to create a Green Manifesto for all the political parties, ahead of the Delhi State Elections 2020. It was created with the help of suggestions submitted by many people.
What is it about ?
This Green Manifesto focuses on environmental issues of high importance. It covers suggestions under several categories like Trees, Animals, Air pollution, Waste Management, Environment Education etc.
When was it released?
Both NGO’s began circulating the manifesto through their social media networks on 17th Jan 2020 and received a great response. Many people have shared the manifesto with their local representatives, so that they would incorporate the suggestions to their goals for the term. The two NGO’s will also personally handover the Green Manifesto to the party leaders.
Why is a Green Manifesto required?
Delhi citizens face terrible environmental conditions throughout the year, so it is important that they vote for the party which will prioritise environmental issues. Due to the lack of focus on environment protection, the conditions are getting worse everyday. The capital is well known around the globe for its high levels of air pollution and everyday there are trees being felled in this city, both legally and illegally. The degradation of the environment in Delhi has already begun to have a severe impact on its citizens physical health. Several articles have also been published recently, describing how the pollution has caused many deaths in all age groups.
