In an attempt to lend a push for a cleaner city, several colleges of Delhi University will come together for an initiative that will not only see them campaign for a ‘clean Delhi’, but also compete for it.

‘The Lead-Green Initiative’, launched by a private company visualises a clean and green Delhi, starting from college campuses.

While environment drives are nothing new to the Capital, this initiative will take the route of cultural festivals and performances and will judge colleges on the basis of their condition vis a vis cleanliness and environment-friendliness.

“When we thought of doing something in the field of environment, we thought why not begin from the campuses and take it forward from there,” said Aaditya Hukku, Director of Uureka events company and the brain behind the project.

The campaign that will continue for a month will see interested colleges register and participate in a range of cultural competitions, with major points reserved for the example set by colleges inside and outside their campuses on the front of cleanliness.

Though the registration is yet to begin, several colleges — both from the North and South campuses — such as Kirorimal college, Hindu college and Sri Venkateswara have already evinced interest.
