They feel that given the rate at which Mumbai is losing its green cover and ecologically sensitive spaces, our country is in a state of ecological emergency and that everyone must do something about it urgently that too on a scale that will make a difference.

To this end, they are arranging a human chain on March 30 at around 4:30 pm at Marine Drive, so as to present a united front to the policymakers and speak out in a non-violent, calm and poised manner against the destruction of the city’s invaluable greens, wildlife, tribal lives, wetlands and coastal line of Mumbai.

A member from the organizing committee said, "We feel honoured to invite everyone who is concerned about the survival of this planet to be a part of this team, to help organize and participate; to form a larger collective that may safeguard the ecological interests of not just this generation, but for all the future generations that are yet to come.
