My Place of Pride: An initiative to recognize eco-friendly communities

Rotary Palmville in association with B.PAC launched ‘My Place of Pride’, an initiative to recognise eco-friendly communities on 26th of November 2016 at Bharatiya Vidhya Bhavan, Race course road. 

The unprecedented growth of Bengaluru city has led to complex urban problems. Our City has a vibrant civic society and its ability to voice concerns arising out of such growth is well known. Bengaluru is currently facing serious challenges in the areas of Solid Waste Management, Water, Energy sufficiency and fire safety. Various communities have responded to these challenges in a commendable manner through creating awareness, setting examples and placing pressure on the governmental institutions.  My Place of Pride is an initiative to acknowledge and appreciate such communities for their efforts and their ability to demonstrate being environmentally responsible.

MyPlaceofPride  is a contest to rate, rank and award the communities that have exhibited best practices in Solid Waste Management, Water conservation, Power management, Fire Safety and Hygiene & Cleanliness .

By this, we seek to provide a platform for communities to showcase their initiatives, create awareness and further encourage others to emulate the best practices.

A special award will be given to communities compliant with Fire Safety Rules and Regulations.

The program aims to provide a platform for communities to share about their initiatives. If you know any proactive and progressive communities, do recommend them. We shall cover their story. Let us share the positive stories and inspire Bengalureans.

We extend an open invitation to all those who are interested in this space to volunteer  and join us in our efforts to make Bengaluru a clean & green space.
