Mumbai’s coastline and water bodies will be the focus of a unique massive citizen volunteering initiative this year again as we celebrate the

“The Biggest Initiative to protect Mumbai’s water bodies’ with Jallosh in March 2020.

The two day initiative not only aims at cleaning the rivers, beaches and mangroves, but also, simultaneously draws citizen volunteers to all the river- bodies and beaches of Mumbai.

Operation “Jallosh-Clean Coasts” is an initiative of Project Mumbai, a not for profit, and is being supported by several like-minded and award-winning groups, including #MahimBeach Cleanup, Beach Warriors, Beach Please, River March  for Nature just to name a few.

Operation Jallosh Clean Coasts will also involve local communities in the initiative. The effort will be as much to educate, inform and action the process.

Simultaneously, this will mark the first step into putting together a white paper on the water bodies to be submitted to the Government of Maharashtra, the MCGM, the MMRDA as well as the Urban Bodies in the MMR. The objective is to make this initiative collaborative and the effort concerted in a manner that Public-Private-People support will be brought in.

Hundreds and thousands of people across the country visit Mumbai only to catch a glimpse of the vast seas, going back disappointed by the dirty waste-littered shores, the scenario is even more pathetic on the river-maintenance front. “Jallosh” last June, was just a first step in drawing the attention of volunteering citizens as well as the Government towards Mumbai’s neglected coastline and water bodies.

“Most people in Mumbai are not even aware of the existence of three rivers flowing through the city, the fourth being Mithi, which came into notice after Mumbai’s deluge over a decade ago. Industrial waste, encroachment and state neglect have led to an acute environmental crisis that Mumbai is facing and most of us are unaware of. It is high time for us to do something by joining our hands.” says River March, a volunteering group which has been relentlessly campaigning for cleaner rivers of Mumbai.

During Jallosh (which translated means celebration) –Clean Coasts, different groups will also hold advocacy and interactive learning sessions on flora and fauna, educating people on not just safe-keeping and maintenance of the beaches, but also protecting the marine life, sea creatures and the mangroves.

Following this, Project Mumbai along with the collaborating teams will also draw up an action plan for a sustained effort to beautify, maintain and subsequently adopt these locations for a cleaner and better Mumbai.

The volunteering opportunity is open to individuals, Corporates, Colleges and Schools, Non-profit voluntary bodies, youth groups, young and old.

Who can participate: Any individual or group of people who feel passionate towards the cause and are able, can do so. There are different options by way of which, a person/group can support the cause which are all detailed in the website.
