‘Swatchh CHAI MIs’ – A Campaign for Clean and Green Environment
As per our discussions, during the 71st AGBM, one of the points we all have agreed on is to support “Clean and Green” campaign. Being a reputed national level non-governmental health organization, CHAI has been working for the promotion of clean and green environment since its inception.
Recently our National Government has also initiated ‘Swatchh Bharat Abhiyan’. It is a campaign to clean our neighbourhood and infrastructure. By participating in this campaign to promote clean and green environment we can interact and network with the local politicians and bureaucrats. This is an opportunity to publicize and promote our work and institutions with the local govt. Hence, to promote the cause let us all commit once again by
- always keeping our premises clean,
- having green surroundings, which means to plant as many plants and trees as possible,
- stop use of crackers during Christmas and Easter time, and
- keep the campus plastic-free.
By committing to follow the above-mentioned points, we are directly contributing to the reduction of carbon emission, which is one of the Millennium Development Goals of United Nations.
Let us make the campaign a grand success!
