Water Day 2005 Function 21 Mar at Dadar
To, All Committed Mumbaikars,
''Your simple pledge could save 40,000 LITRES OF WATER every year
On the occasion of World Water Day 2005, we invite you to the launch
of the '5 point Citizens Pledge' for water conservation. These
5 simple water savings tips when practiced daily can lead to a personal
contribution of 40,000 litres annually.
Mumbai requires an awakening on Water Conservation. Many organizations
including the BMC, have been working silently in the field promoting
Rain Water Harvesting and Water Conservation. However a Movement of
Water Conservation needs to happen in order to create urgency and
realization of the looming crisis that the city will face.
Towards this, the Eureka Forbes Institute of Environment (EFIE) along
with the Lotus Suites (an ecotel hotel) and Rachna Sansad Institute
of Environmental Architecture are inaugurating a permanent 'Water
harvesting center' and launching the "5 POINT PLEDGE CARD"
for every Mumbai citizen on 21st March, 2005 which is the eve of World
Water Day. It contains 5
practical and simple water usage practices, that saves 40,000 litres
per person. It does not require dramatic changes in lifestyle.
This pledge card will be widely distributed to citizens and will be
carried prominently in the media. It will become a rallying point
for the Water Conservation Movement in Mumbai. It has the potential
to become a National Movement. Every 5 people who take the pledge
will save Mumbai 2 Lakhs Litres of water annually.
The Pledge Card is being launched by 4 Prominent Mumbaikars and one
schoolchild. You are requested to be there when the first pledge
is taken. Your presence will galvanize the Water Conservation Movement
I look forward to your confirmation.
For Eureka Forbes Institute of Environment,
