Express Your Green Heart
A yearning to make a difference? Curiosity for unexplored territories? Daring to try out challenging paths and a naive sense of idealism? This marks the mindset of the youth worldwide, you are normal, but concerned. We live in an era where youth are searching for an alternative direction for applying their creativity, passion, and energies. They are mobilizing themselves online and through direct action on the streets with the purpose of disrupting corrupt establishments and paving the way for a new way of life that is based on an ethical framework. The youth today reject the wisdom of the people who have learned the game of
survival in the current corrupt system. They don’t let skepticism and cynicism
cloud their search for an environment that is not polluted by human greed for cornering resources and opportunities selfishly. We are faced with a perfect opportunity to take a political stand on re-directing our resources towards building a society of responsible citizens who are driven not by a consumer economy but by a creative ecology. India is in the middle of a churn of ideas. People, who are in search of alternative and sustainable vision of the future are drawn to the Aam Aadmi Party as a platform for exploring the idea of a sustainable development agenda. We understand the enthusiasm and idealism of the youth who are attracted to the disruptive yet ethical alternative being explored by the AAP in the idea of Swaraj. We have come together to mobilize a political caucus that will harness these ideas, this pervasive enthusiasm and the idealism of the Aam Aadmi to direct public policies and political actions with a sense of responsibility for ecological balance. We are proposing a green manifesto, which we will take to each of the candidates of the Aam Aadmi Party and get them to commit to a political imperative to preserve ecology - to stand by the idea - that a modern society of responsible citizens must fight the environmental corruption at the same level as economic corruption. Please join the grass root level campaign for a sustainable future. We believe that India can become a laboratory for sustainable development with a firm political backing of the Aam Aadmi party. This requires imagination and committed action from all of us based on an agreed set of guidelines outlined on our Green Manifesto.
