Indore as a city has been deeply involved in the cleanliness drive. After all, the city stood first in the country for a third time in a row. People of Indore, it seems, love nothing more than their poha jalebi and a good ol’ drive to revolutionise and create awareness about environment and ways to save it.

In a time where the Earth is heating up as we speak, glaciers are melting, there’s pollution everywhere and greenhouse gases have made their way into our lives, the dream to achieve sustainability seems unachievable.

Yet, Indore has time and again proved that if you put your mind to things, nothing is achievable.

This World Environment Day, Indore as a city came forward to do all that and much more. The people of Indore, the authorities, the government and organizations came together to spread the message of conservation and sustainable living and they did it so proudly, we feel other cities need to borrow a leaf from Indore’s book.

To mark the World Environment Day, over 200 saplings were planted at the Trenching grounds, which if you recall from our previous reports, was used to dump tonnes of waste and garbage.

Not only was the trenching ground cleaned but it is now planned, that there would be a huge golf course in its stead.

Not just that, to create awareness among people about water conservation, Urban Health Resource Centre formed a human chain near Palasia, Chhappan Dukan and Nand Bagh.

While IIT Indore planned and successfully oversaw a plantation drive where they planted sapling and talked about how IIT Indore is “aggressively pursuing” a sustainable campus strategy by using solar panels on rooftops, using electric vehicles within the campus and keeping their campus cashless.

One might say that these steps are few and what huge difference can they make towards an environment that is deteriorating day by day. Yet, we must remember that small efforts are what make anything successful, these small efforts are good enough to shape the lifestyle, the way of life for people and that is exactly what we need.

Kudos to you Indore.
