TIRUVANANTHAPURAM : Udyanam project, under the district administration’s project C5 (Change for Change Climate Change) which aims at a sustainable lifestyle mitigating the effects of climate change, is gaining momentum in the city with the district administration taking steps to create model neighbourhoods in the city. The project which intends to make a green and beautiful city has already been started. 

Now, as part of the project, the district administration has set to create model neighbourhoods across the city. A meeting was organised as part of the project at Jawahar Balabhavan, which was attended by Haritha Keralam Mission vice-chairperson T N Seema, District Collector K Vasuki, Thiruvananthapuram Chamber of Commerce and Industries president Reguchandran Nair and representatives of the local residents’ associations and political parties. 

T N Seems, who addressed the gathering, said green walkways and model neighbourhoods conceived as part of the project are in fact a model worth to emulate for the entire world as the project aims to mitigate the impact of the climate change. The Udyanam project also involves scientific waste management and treatment. In connection with the project, waste would be segregated at the source-level and the biodegradable material will be used for making grow bags to grow plants in them. The segregated non-biodegradable wastes will be sent to recycling units. The local residents would be entrusted with the task of looking after the beautified stretches. 

K Vasuki who spoke at the meeting said the basic motto of the project is ‘my waste, my responsibly. If the people are convinced about their responsibility, it would be the biggest achievements of the project and the Udyanam is a new hope for the people, she added. Terumo Penpol is the chief sponsor of the project. Associating partners in the project included BAI, CIA, Young Indians, TATF, TCCI, C5 and residents’ welfare associations.
