Millennium Fellowship Project: Green Cover City
Making a city clean and green means its citizens need to understand what a sustainable lifestyle is. But the main argument against adopting a sustainable lifestyle is that it is not economical. This opinion is popular especially in low income families. So the first goal of this project is to create awareness about an economical and sustainable lifestyle.The team will think of ways to bring clean and
green practices into the lives of the citizens but with a low-cost perspective as well so that it is adopted with great fervor.The first such practice would be green balconies. Cities are filled with residence
buildings and that makes a lot of balconies. If each balcony grew a creeper or a couple of potted plants, the change in the quality of the air would be tremendous. The team would initially try
to bring this practice into at least 200 balconies as their first advent.
