Pride of place for green communities

Feb 6, 2017, Bengaluru, DHNS 23:58 IST
A unique contest entitled ‘My Place of Pride’ has been initiated by Rotary Club of Bangalore Palmville, in association with Bangalore Political Action Committee (B.PAC), to instil pride in people for communities they live in.

The contest aims to recognise eco-friendly communities in Bengaluru which have strived to become role models by adopting and implementing sustainable practices.

The contest is open to Residents’ Welfare Associations (RWAs), villa communities, apartment complex communities (small, large and medium), and has seen 65 registrations so far. The registration process had begun in December last year.

Revathy Ashok, CEO, B.PAC, said, “The contesting communities will be evaluated on self-declaration, polling and physical inspection by experts. Communities will be rated on five star rating scales, and top three winners in every category will be awarded. The categories for the contest are waste management, water management, power management, hygiene and cleanliness.”

To make communities familiar with the format of the contest, an introductory workshop was held on Sunday in which registrants and potential registrants took part. A few communities filled the self-declaration forms, answering queries and sharing their best practices.

More than 40 community representatives attended the workshop, including Army Welfare Housing Organisation, Kannamangala, Purva Fairmont-HSR Layout and Koramangala 3rd Block RWA.

Registrations for the contest are open till February 15. Interested communities can visit www.myplaceofpride.com/register/ to register or call 9008188400/ 9886196640 for details. An award ceremony will be held on March 12 in the city.
