Environment Ministry launches Harit Diwali Swasth Diwali campaign

The Union Ministry of Environment has launched Harit Diwali, Swasth Diwali campaign. This campaign was initiated in 2017-18 wherein large number of school children especially from eco-clubs participated and took pledge to minimize bursting of crackers and also discouraged the neighborhood and their friends from bursting of crackers.  (October 22, 2018)

The Ministry has initiated the campaign on the similar lines but extended to a pan-India.

Air pollution is a serious health issue in the country especially in the northern parts during winter seasons. The air pollution in the northern region is attributed to dust, burning of crops in certain states, burning of garbage construction and prevailing climatic conditions

The “Harit Diwali-Swasth Diwali” campaign is now merged with “Green Good Deed” movement that has been initiated as a social mobilization for conservation and protection of environment.

The Ministry encourages all schools and colleges to be part of this campaign.
