Work Overview

What happened to our right to CLEAN AIR!
Our campaign started with blowing the lid on smog and exposing the smogmakers in a city where a person dies every hour due to air pollution. The campaign carries on to clean the air of noxious pollutants to make breathing easier for all.

Have few minutes for a major mobility concern? - The Parking dilemma - How much to pay and for what?

This questionnaire is meant for a study aimed at preparing a MODERN, organised infrastructure for parking vehicles (cars, two-wheelers, bicycles) and also providing excellent walking and cycling facilities in and around the neighbourhood of Alaknanda Market. This would be done to remove the chaos from the market and make it more walking friendly with an orderly manner of parked cars and two-wheelers. This is important also to ease the flow of heavy traffic through the region on all sides. This questionnaire should not take you more than 10 minutes. We at CSE look forward to your valuable participation in making this research study profound and noteworthy.

Good News & Bad News: Clearing the Air in Indian Cities

Currently only 10-15 per cent of India — even in its richest cities — commutes by car. But private cars take up over 90 per cent of the existing road space. And remember, this is when only a small minority drives. How will we make space for the rest to drive — space on the road for the car to move and space in the air for us to breath? This is the reason for this book. Without a mobility transformation, Indian cities can never win the war on foul air and toxins emitted by vehicles.
