Tidy City Campaign starts off with Museum Clean Up


Like mentioned in my previous post there is a new initiative by a group of youngsters to contribute towards building up the awareness about the importance of keeping our environment clean and in managing waste. As part of this initiative we are planning to conduct a 2 hr Museum (Trivandrum) cleanup drive. Since the major reason why we have to deal with waste in the first place is a lack of awareness/concern among the general public, that is the aspect that we are trying to address through thIs clean-up drive. Do read more about the museum cleanup and join the mailing list if you are interested.

If you sympathize with the cause you can join the mailing list by sending a mail to friends-subscribe at tidycity dot org or by using the form given on the site www.tidycity.org. The list and the site is not just meant for people from Trivandrum alone. Do join and be part of the initiative and take your own initiative around the place where you live and use the site and the list to share your experiences. Let us all join our hands together and work towards this common goal.

The objective of this activity is to contribute towards building awareness around the cause. We understand that cleaning museum grounds for a day won't change the garbage scenario in the city but remember - little drops make an ocean. Additionally through such activities we are also hoping to reach out and connect with people who share this passion.

If you stay in or around Trivandrum do join us for the clean up by dropping by at the Museum grounds at 4PM. We will meet at the main entrance at 4PM and then move on from there. You wont miss us, we will have some cleaning up paraphernalia with us. -Do come prepared to get your hands dirty. But don't worry politicians do it all the time, the getting hands dirty part, so it must be safe :-). So come let us have some fun.

Environment should be kept clean.... It helps reduce diseases amongst people...
museum clean up is a good idea as all the historic articles, monuments and statues are kept in the museum. It must be kept very clean..

Dear team
First of all let me wish all the best for this initiative...
Yesterday(Friday-02-10-09) i was paasing by Manaveeyamn road where i saw a program conducted by this group made me to send this mail.I whole heartedly appreciate the initave that your team was trying to convey to the Public but i doubt whether that has reached the target. I think the message "importance & how" to keep the city clean was revolving inside the group who were already a part of this initiatve.Next time when you do such an activity please ensure the PR activity has been successfully done and in the end the next venue should be clearly communicated to the public. For this you can even think about using a small Mic to catch the public.I strongly believe that 02 or 03 youngsters who were trying to communicate to the people was not upto the mark with the strength of their voice,that could happen only with some technical help which would come out with better results.Use print media,channels before arranging such activities,but above all i accept & acknowledge your yesterdays effort.Those songs by a theatre group was good enough ,may be u can think about a debate or seminars involving people who are having knowledge & intereste on this subject.My contribution for any such initiatives will be always offered to you any time .
God bless you all...keep going......

All the best

I have passed on the comments to the people behind the initiative. You might also want to check out www.tidycity.org and join the mailing list and get involved in the forums there.

Thanks for the kind words. I guess you can start off similar campaigns wherever you are. You don't really have to be in Trivandrum. Looks like you share similar interests. So you should easily be able to contribute towards similar causes around you.
