Sudhir Mittal, Special Director General of the Organising Committee, said that through the campaign the organizing committee is making an endeavor to spread the message of conserving the earth.

"The main aim is to sensitise and make people aware. As like the joint secretary was telling us that earth is one and rather than re-generation we are only consuming. We are consuming more than what we are re-generating. But we should re-generate more than what we are consuming, "said Mittal.
