Cyclothon promotes clean, green energy in city

Bhubaneswar, Nov 6: Around 300 cyclists on Sunday joined Cyclothon to support the cause of clean and green energy here.

Oxfam India, in collaboration with Bhubaneswar Municipality Corporation (BMC) and Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) and its campaign partners Practical Action, Climate Parliament, Youth for Social Development and Regional Centre for Development Cooperation, organised the ‘Cyclothon’ from Ram Mandir to KIIT Square.

The Cyclothon was a part of the Oxfam India’s public facing campaign on renewable energy “Renew to live anew” and is initiating a public facing campaign for renewable energy in Bhubaneswar, Odisha. 

Bhubaneswar MP Prasanna Patsani flagged off the campaign in the presence of BMC Mayor Ananta Narayan Jena and many others.

 “As Bhubaneswar is becoming a Smart City, it is important to meet the growing energy demands and we need to start thinking of more about alternative sources of energy mainly solar, wind, etc. Based on this context, the campaign attempts to reach out to the urban middle class to make them aware about the rising energy crisis and how they can make use of more renewable options. We are hopeful that the campaign will raise awareness towards this end,” said Oxfam regional director Akshaya Kumar Biswal.
