Location: Triveni Ghat, Nagar Nigam & Ward no. 6
Celebrating Independence Day by raising awareness on source segregation through Nukkad Natak
Our team celebrated the 75th Independence Day by organizing multiple street theater performances at different locations in the city of Rishikesh, to spread awareness on source segregation and anti-littering.
As part of the Swachh Bharat Mega Independence Day event, we reached out to an audience of regular ashram devotees, tourists and local residents at Triveni Ghat through a series of theater performances on waste segregation and anti-littering. The Nukkad Natak Group called 'Prayas Jagrukta Manch’ began the performance with patriotic songs to set the mood for a Swachh Bharat.
We also set up a stall at the Nagar Nigam compound along with a pledge board where the visitors pledged to start practicing waste segregation at home, not litter in open spaces and reducing the use of single-use products.
The honorable Mayor, Smt. Anita Mamgain also visited our stall and took a pledge to reduce plastic waste in Ganga by segregating at the source. She motivated the citizens to take the pledge and become responsible for their environment.
We reached out to the residents of our pilot ward no. 6 through our ‘nukkad natak’ performance on waste segregation. The residents were exposed to a visual understanding of how to segregate waste at home and to avoid littering around Ganga.
The residents of our pilot ward concluded the event by taking a pledge and joining hands with the other residents of Rishikesh to make a cleaner city and reduce their plastic waste.
