A Delhi-based NGO is our Earth Day Hero who has done outstanding work to inspire many urban dwellers of northwest India to do their bit for the environment. They adopted the strategy of ‘Miyawaki Plantation’ to turn an urban space in Dwarka, Delhi, into a forest. This had 4,000 individuals and around 250 households be a part of the process to plant and maintain the grove.
