I am Surbhi Rajarwal from BHARTIYA VIDYA BHAVAN, VIDYASHRAM School. This is my kind request to all my group mates to start discussing on the topic "CRITERIA FOR JUDGING GREEN CITY" here. Please share your opinions here as i too will do that soon.
Propose YOUR criteria for judging a GRUEN
After my research the conclusion i get for the judging criteria for a green city are :
#1. GREENERY IN MOST BACKWARD AND LOCAL AREAS OF THE CITY
I think that the true picture of anyplace is given by its local areas. If the most local and backward area of a place is green and pollution free then the city is the true required Sustainable city.
There are cases where its seen way clear that the porch and the developed ares of a city are neat and hygienic leaving behind the above mentioned areas. When the local areas of a place are left for judging its environmental cleanliness then what we get is a disguised image of the city.
#2. PEOPLE'S INITIATIVE
If the population of a city is aware about the unfavorable conditions of the environment and its destructive nature and is keen in resolving these problems then the place is likely to smell fresh and look lush green.On the other hand if the citizens are not having the true perception of the alarming rates of environmental problems then no angels can save the place be it the
governmental policies or any other NGOs. These points covered in European Green Leaf Award for evaluating an area are truly practical.
One more criteria for jugding a GRUEN is:
@Wildlife Biodiversity: If a place is rich in its wildlife biodirversity than a place is likely to be a clean and eco-friendly place. Rich flaura and fauna are true indicators of a place's true and pure environmental conditions.
