In view of the recent observations on Mumbai’s air quality and pollution contributing sources, Mumbai First in association with NEERI, organized a half – day roundtable discussion on Pseudo Stifling: Mumbai & Mumbaikars “Championing for Cleaner Air and Clearer Skies” on 5th November 2018.
Furthering the cause of Pseudo Stifling: Mumbai & Mumbaikars “Championing for Cleaner Air and Clearer Skies “the major contributors discussed were inter and intra dependently and the complexities faced across the urban fabric of the city now are of great urgency.
We hope this inter-disciplinary round table leads as a torch bearer in acting as a consolidated voice of the people by the people and for the people.
The need of this discussion is due to the fact that the cause of air pollution mitigation must move from citizens’ charter and bring the focus back to all stakeholders.
With partnerships of concerned agencies and citizens, it would be possible to keep air quality as pristine as possible. The discussion saw participation from various stakeholders such as MCGM, MPCB, NEERI, IIT Bombay and WRI , Experts and citizens of Mumbai.
We envision the dias shared today is a beginning towards being an inclusive and holistic society.
