Trapped in a twister of unending civic woes, Bengaluru is in dire need of sustainable solutions to tackle its daily tussles with garbage, pollution, mobility, traffic and environment. Only a well-structured, action-oriented partnership of the media, citizens and the government machinery can bring about real change on the ground. 
Recognising this, we at Deccan Herald are stepping in to act as a robust platform and a critical interface between the government and citizens. The clear objective is to spark a change collectively to the best of our abilities.  
This change, we feel, can begin by engaging with the biggest challenge that confronts Bengaluru today: Solid waste management. Unable to cope with over 5,000 tons of waste generated every day, the city's systems are in decay. Can we, as citizens, the media, experts and the State, collectively suggest a roadmap for change? Can we 'Clean Up Bengaluru' and activate a transformed garbage collection and disposal strategy?
Join us for a public discussion on Bengaluru's looming garbage crisis with a panel of distinguished speakers. The panel includes:

G. Parameshwara, Deputy Chief Minister of Karnataka

Manjunath Prasad, BBMP Commissioner

Wilma Rodrigues, Founder and CEO, Saahas Zero Waste
