Do you feel embarrassed and worried to be living in the MOST POLLUTED city on our planet?

Are you concerned about your and your dear ones health due to Delhi's consistently HAZARDOUS LEVELS of air quality ?

Here is your chance to take action about this situation by protecting the lungs of Delhi, the trees.

1713 adult and large trees are planned to be cut for construction of an Integrated Exhibition cum Convention Center (IECC) in Pragati Maidan Central Delhi. The tree felling will be done right in the heart of the city and with several schools, hospitals and residential areas in the vicinity. These areas along with the rest of Delhi-NCR will suffer from the resulting worsened pollution. Over the last 3 years , Delhi has already lost 15000 trees to development and we CANNOT AFFORD to lose any more.

We believe cutting of trees should be avoided at all costs specially at a time of the current environmental emergency which we are facing. The trees should infact be integrated into the project design to showcase India's commitment towards Climate Change action and Sustainable Development to the world.

We call on the following to take action :

Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEFCC)

Chief Minister-Delhi,

Minister of Environment and Forests-Delhi,

Prime Minister-Narendra Modi, 

State Level Environment Impact Assessment Authority (SEIAA)

India Trade Promotion Organization (ITPO)
