Green Society: Rotary’s Environment Conservation Project for Housing Societies
Environment protection is the urgent need of hour. It is the responsibility of every citizen to make every effort at the individual and organizational level for this.
Rotary International has always given priority to the projects of environmental protection and conservation. In line with this, Rotary District 3131 has successfully implemented projects in waste management, water conservation, raising the ground water level, bund deepening, bandhara construction, jalkund etc. in the last few years. Now Rotary has taken up the Green Society project in the rotary year 2023-24.
The key steps in this project is to create awareness about environment-friendly lifestyle in the housing societies, guide them on the technical aspects required for actual work, and to connect the service providers and the housing societies for implementation.
Workshops will be organized at the beginning of the rotary year in Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad and Panvel to create environmental awareness and provide guidance on environmental projects. In such workshops, NGOs and experts in this field will guide the housing societies. Those societies who want to participate in this project will be asked to register at the end of the workshops. At the end of the workshop, the registration of the housing societies who want to participate in the Green Society projects will be done. Societies that successfully implement this project will be awarded the Rotary Green Society Award by Rotary District 3131. For this, organizations must implement projects in at least one or more areas of energy conservation, water conservation, waste management and increase in green cover. The period of implementation of such projects must be Rotary Year i.e. July 1, 2023 to June 30, 2024.
The first workshop of this type is planned in the last week of July in Kothrud Pune.
Pune District Cooperative Housing Society and Apartment Federation, Ecological Society and Kirloskar Vasundhara will be the partners to make this project successful.
