Chandigarh is gearing up to mark World Environment Day with a significant community effort titled ‘Mega Cleaning Drive.’ The event, organized by the Municipal Corporation of Chandigarh, will take place on June 5th, 2024, at Sukhna Choe, near Shastri Nagar, Manimajra. Residents are invited to gather at 6 AM to participate in this initiative aimed at beautifying the city and promoting environmental consciousness.

The cleaning drive is part of a global movement to enhance ecological health and will focus on clearing litter and restoring the natural beauty of the Sukhna Choe area, a popular spot prone to pollution. “This event is a chance for the citizens of Chandigarh to come together for a cause that affects us all,” stated a representative from the Municipal Corporation. “It’s about more than just cleaning; it’s about taking pride in our city and working collectively to enhance our living environment.”

Community leaders, environmental activists, and local residents are all expected to join forces for this cause. Volunteers are encouraged to wear comfortable attire and bring essential cleaning supplies such as gloves and trash bags. The initiative is designed to foster a spirit of community and environmental stewardship among participants of all ages.

“Participating in such activities can significantly impact our city’s ecological footprint and overall cleanliness,” added the spokesperson. “It’s also a fantastic opportunity for residents to engage with their community and make a positive contribution to the city’s health.”

The Municipal Corporation of Chandigarh is enthusiastic about the potential impact of this drive and hopes it will inspire ongoing environmental efforts throughout the city.

By rallying together, Chandigarh can make a strong statement this World Environment Day, demonstrating its commitment to a cleaner, greener, and happier future.
