I Am Gurgaon
Initiative aimed at awakening a responsible, aware and vigilant populace in order to make our city a better place to live in.
Work and Achievements
MillionTreesGurgaon: We have successfully planted about 1 lakh saplings, of which 95,000 saplings have been planted at the Aravali Biodiversity Park.
ABP is an iamgurgaon an initiative in conjunction with Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon. We continue to engage with its development and organize planting drives, nature walks, cleaning drives, leaf composting as well as cultural events in this park located in the Aravali Range near the Delhi border. This project not only reinforces the local ecology by reclaiming the native Aravali forest but also change the landscape of the entire Range in the area.
Know Your Trees: Educate children the importance of appreciating floral diversity and its benefits. We encourage the children/parents to cultivate the practice of carrying their own bags to reduce usage of polythene.
Bundh rejuvenation: Gurgaon has 5.2 kms of nullah and Bundh running across the city which have been lying unused and inaccessible, right in the heart of the growing residential areas. The stretch has been a solid waste dumping ground, an open defecation area with a number of encroachments. The nullah has grey water and garbage from the neighboring areas, and is lying dry in some places. The project is conceptualized as a means to rejuvenate this unused part of the city as green, public space for the residents- in a safe, clean environment. A pilot of 1000 meters has already been successfully
Community outreach: We are actively engaged in promotion of environmental conservation through our website and social media.
