KONE India’s Green Dream Project was initiated last year in collaboration with Green Dream Foundation with the objective of sensitizing the general public on key environmental themes. The ongoing project uplifts otherwise neglected walls, delivers a powerful message in a very effective manner, and offers dignified job opportunities for talented artists from different parts of the country.
The project aims to raise awareness and make people more mindful of their actions. It also serves to beautify several neglected walls – in line with the Swachh Bharat Mission. The latest area in Delhi to get makeover is the Mahipalpur Flyover, spanning more than 20,000 square feet.
The wall was inaugurated by Amit Gossain, Managing Director, KONE Elevators India, Shri Ashwani Kumar, IAS, Special Officer, MCD, Shri Gyanesh Bharti, IAS, Commissioner, MCD and Ashish Sachdeva, Founder & President, Green Dream Foundation. They also felicitated some artists who have been associated with Green Dream Project from the very start, and are the hands behind the beautiful makeovers of many city walls.
Amit Gossain, Managing Director, KONE Elevators India said at the inauguration, ”At KONE India, we constantly aim to contribute to better tomorrows in the communities that we are privileged to serve. Project Green Dream is an important pillar of our community initiatives that centers around circular economy, waste and water management, etc. The project has been drawing a lot of attention and appreciation in the Delhi-NCR Region, Ranchi and Chandigarh already, and our plan is to spread it nationally. In line with government’s Swatch Bharat Mission, inaugurating it during India’s Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is a great honour for us.”
Ashish Sachdeva, Founder & President, Green Dream Foundation, said at the occasion, “Aligning not only to the vision of Net Zero but also to the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, these wall paintings depict how Delhi has embarked upon its journey to Zero Waste to achieve freedom from hazardous landfills. Recognition of the artists by the senior officials will go a long way in motivating them to keep delivering better with every upcoming project.”
