WWF-India, the country’s largest conservation organization, is proposing to conduct World Environment Day on June 5th in Hyderabad. The theme for World Environment Day 2009 is 'Your Planet Needs You - Unite to Combat Climate Change', reflecting the urgency for nations to agree on a climate change treaty at talks scheduled in Copenhagen this year, and the links with overcoming poverty and improved management of forests. As part of this mega event the WWF-India is organizing a cycle rally and an environment exhibition to create awareness among citizens of Hyderabad.
The cycle rally begins from 3 locations i.e. Mehdipatnam (near Sarojini Devi hospital), Charminar (near COVA office), and Secunderabad (YMCA). Many students (school & college), residents, forest staff, police staff, corporate staff and others are expected to participate.
The Hyderabad Bicycling Club will join the cycle rally at Mehdipatnam. The rally begins at 7am from Sarojini Devi Hospital and will reach NTR gardens at around 9am. After the cycle rally, an environment exhibition is on display at NTR gardens, where people from different walks of life, including NGOs, government employees, school students, and green solution providers, will exhibit their activities. The exhibition will go on from 10am to 5 pm.
