I am glad to announce that a few active citizens will be our guest speakers at the event. Below is brief information about the dynamic personalities who are gracefully working at the ground as well as at the top level for making our city livable.

She has been working relentlessly for revival of rivers and has been the driving force in sensitizing the society through initiatives like Adopt a Stretch, River walk and toxin free lifestyle products along with Aditi Deodhar and Manish Ghorpade to name a few.

She rides a bicycle for her daily commute to promote sustainable transport that is low carbon, healthy and environment friendly.

He has been volunteering tirelessly for several issues in the city, be it chain fasting for our rivers, saving bird sanctuary, wall painting for a cause, SWACH survekshan, cycling and for red dot campaign etc etc and the list continues.
