A b o u t We For Yamuna’
‘We for Yamuna’ is a non- funded youth campaign, working since August 2000 towards creating and spreading awareness, regarding the Yamuna Pollution Problem, using innovative interactive media, as part of our larger endeavor towards creating a cleaner, greener and better society. Over a period of a year we have become one of the strongest voices on the issue of Yamuna pollution and have been recognized as such by the People, the Government of NCT of Delhi, the media,the United Nations Volunteers, as well as our peers.
'We For Yamuna' focuses on the dying river, which was, and ironically still is, the lifeline of Delhi and its adjoining areas. The group has been using the interactive media of photo exhibitions, workshops, wall magazines, T-shirt painting, poster making, yamuna walks and shramdaans among others, in order to generate awareness among the people about the widespread pollution emanating from industrial waste, the callousness of the populace and mobilize public opinion in order to bring about positive changes in society.
'We for Yamuna' has evolved as a movement -a consensus amongst people about the nature of the society, its problems and possible ways to work towards this change. By change we hope to bring about a change in the attitude of the masses, a change in the perception, a change in environment-both social and human.
'We for Yamuna' continues to be fuelled solely on youth volunteer effort and is perhaps one of the best examples of a youth volunteer effort.
