Courting the green 21.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Saturday
With another World Earth Day falling today, the need to conserve the city's depleting green cover is only reiterated. The theme this year is environmental and climate literacy. The many campaigns that one sees in Bengaluru, in an effort to protect and preserve the green cover, is proof that people still care and want to do their bit to conserve the environment. Efforts are being undertaken by many small groups to clean the city by painting its walls so that people don't dump garbage there and deface them. From planting saplings and tapping solar energy to saving water and electricity and using compost to grow plants, Bengalureans, especially youngsters, are leading the way towards a greener city. Environmentalists feel that awareness and education about conserving green spaces must begin from school.

Promises unkept, another run to save Vibhutipura lake tomorrow 21.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Despite persistent efforts by hundreds of residents around it, the 45-acre Vibhutipura lake near HAL has been pushed to its deathbed. Desperate to save the water body from land sharks and spur the government to act on its promises, a Run4Lake is now organised on April 21 (Sunday). The lakes challenges are mounting: Incomplete fencing by the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), unregulated inflow of untreated sewage through multiple inlets, indiscriminate dumping of debris and solid waste along its boundary. In February 2013, after much persuasion by citizens, the BDA had been entrusted with the development work. The objective was clear: To save whatever was left of the heavily encroached lake, fence it, stop sewage inflow, deweed and develop an ecosystem around. As the government agencies floundered, residents kept up the momentum. To interact with the agencies and involve volunteers and Residents' Welfare Associations (RWAs) in the rejuvenation efforts, they formed a trust, VIKAS (Vibhutipura Kere ...
