Bengaluru is a fast growing urban center where the lack of city planning during the past 20 years and current apathy of government agencies and citizens has resulted in a dire situation. The city is overflowing with garbage and pollution. When you look around Bengaluru, it does not invoke pride.
The lack of infrastructure has left a gap in the government’s capacity to deal with the overwhelming pollution and environmental degradation. In local communities, people have organized their own groups to deal with issues of garbage disposal and absence of public toilets. Citizens have restored entire areas; they painted walls, reclaimed parks, fixed walkways, created waste segregation for recycling and compost, and worked to stop littering on the streets.
Various Bengaluru Rising groups want to attract more citizens to help everyday. They are also calling on the government to do their part. My Place of Pride intends to tip the scale towards longterm sustainability goals and to make Bengaluru an environmentally friendly city that will be emblematic for all of India.
But still its less than 2% of public who are socially active.
My Place of Pride INTENDS TO CHANGE THAT !
