 Music Concert Conducted in Pune to Spread Information About CWG as Green Games

A music concert was conducted in Pune on Saturday to spread the message to the public about the Commonwealth Games as 'green games'.

Organised in association with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF), this music concert was held as part of the 'Low Carbon Campaign'.


The highlight of the concert was performance by Euphoria, one of the top rock bands of India.

The players of the Indian hockey team also participated in the event.

"Our team doesn't use any transport facility for going from their hostel to the ground for practicing, they go walking to the ground as the slogan is 'Go Green'," said Joginder Singh, coach.

"The way we have designed our schedule, we request the residents of Pune to design their schedule in such a way that at least once in a week they should go to their office on bicycles," said Rajpal Singh, captain of the Indian Hockey team.

A series of such music concerts is being held all over India. In Pune, it was the second concert of the series. The first concert took place in Kolkata.

The campaign also included tree plantation in several cities along the Queen's Baton Relay route and Low Carbon Fairs.

India is expecting about two million tourists in New Delhi for the Games, as well as about 10,000 athletes from 71 teams representing 54 Commonwealth member states, which will be held from October 3 to 14.

The 12-day sporting extravaganza will be India's biggest sporting event since the 1982 Asian Games in New Delhi.
