The launch of the WWF-India Cities for Forests campaign is set to take place in Delhi this weekend.
Holidaymakers who have taken cheap flights to Delhi could support a new campaign from WWF-India entitled Cities for Forests.
Taking place on Saturday July 30th 2011, the launch of the project will see environmentalists lauding the benefits of green spaces in urban areas.
“WWF staff, supporters and volunteers … will put up banners carrying conservation messages on trees, hold up placards for passing cars, and raise awareness amongst the shoppers and passersby,” explained the organisers.
The team will meet at 17:00 local time opposite the Maruti Suzuki Head Office on Nelson Mandela Marg, which is located in the Vasant Kunj district of Delhi.
According to the event’s Facebook page, 38 people are currently signed up to attend the event, which is expected to last about two hours.
WWF-India, established in 1969, is the largest organisation in the country to be engaged in nature conservation and has regional offices all over India as well as its Secretariat in Delhi.
