Citizens across Delhi have come out to protect the environment, challenge the authorities and take action by mobilizing their neighbourhood residents and RWA. These individual campaigns are a part of a larger movement which empowers Delhiites to take community actions and stand up to make a sustainable change.
Read more about these inspiring stories and young leaders in our Youth4Environment September Newsletter.
These young campaigners are supported through the Youth4Environment Fellowship Program spearheaded by URJA (United Residents Joint Action) the apex body of RWA’s, Haiyya (a non-profit campaigning organization) and Help Delhi Breathe (a citizen coalition group).
Youth4Environment Fellowship Program ignites ordinary citizen action through neighborhood level environment campaigns. It is the first collaboration between youth leaders and their local RWA’s, bridging the generational gap often found at local community level and mobilizing all to adopt local climate solutions.
