NMTV News met on the “Green Movement 2010” that is has started this year with our special report “Green Man Sandeep Naik gives Green Hope to Navi Mumbai”. A MLA cleaning and sweeping a bus depot of his constituency early morning on World Environment Day – something that you might have never seen or heard but that’s the difference MLA Sandeep Naik is trying to make in Navi Mumbai. While Green Hope’s Green Movement 2010 that MLA Sandeep Naik has announced will get started in full swing from the 15th of this month, the event was given a start on the occasion of World Environment Day. MLA Sandeep Naik began the movement with a message of “Clean Navi Mumbai, Green Navi Mumbai.” He was accompanied by Mayor Sagar Naik. Citizens participated with the MLA and Mayor for tree plantation drive. Green Hope never started on a small note. It started with a bang in 2008 when MLA Sandeep Naik – the President of Green Hope started the green mission of planting a lakh trees in Navi Mumbai. In its second year, Green Hope took a step forward and took up the challenge of planting 2 lakh trees along with mangrove plantation. In its third year, the green mission started by MLA Sandeep Naik is all set to become bigger and better. MLA Sandeep Naik says that this year, the Green Hope has embarked upon a green movement that aims at planting 2 lakh trees and involving citizens of all ages in the movement. It’s not easy as it sounds because tree plantation involves not just planting but nurturing it later so that it does not die. MLA Sandeep Naik says that to achieve this, the most important thing is to involve citizens in the drive. Only then the trees planted live and play the role of lungs in urban cities like Navi Mumbai. To ensure that citizens of all ages become a part of his green movement, Green Hope has planned several activities as well. These range from essay and drawing to photography competitions that will be exhibited for all to see at the landmark Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Chowk at Vashi. Green hope’s movement will start in full swing from the 15th of June and will culminate with a honoring ceremony for greeners who will participate in the green movement with a green passion. MLA Sandeep Naik says that Green Hope will work to make Navi Mumbai be known as a “Green City”. On World Environment Day, ask the Green Man of Navi Mumbai what he thinks is the biggest challenge the world faces and the youth MLA echoes what experts around the world are saying – it is “global warming”. There aren’t many MLAs in the state today who are working to make a difference to environment or creating awareness on global warming. Probably on the lines of America’s former Vice President Al Gore, Green Man Sandeep Naik is determined to give a green hope to make Navi Mumbai a green city ! Sana Warsia – NMTV News.
