Launch of Delhi@2047
In its budget for 2021-22, Hon’ble CM Sh. Arvind Kejriwal had unveiled a bold vision for Delhi by 2047, the hundredth year of India’s independence, that is:
- EQUITABLE with the per capita income of Delhi being equal to Singapore and every person, rich or poor, having a high standard of living;
- MODERN with world-class infrastructure and public services. Delhi shall bid for hosting the 2048 Olympic games; and
- SUSTAINABLEin providing clean air and water to all its residents and resilient in fighting disasters. Delhi will transition to electric vehicles.
Achieving this ambitious vision is not possible by any single stakeholder and requires deep and sustained collaboration between the government, private sector and civil society. The Delhi@2047 platform invites the ideas, expertise, participation, and partnership of private sector/CSR initiatives and philanthropic organisations to collaborate with the Delhi Government for transforming into the city of our dreams.
The Delhi@2047 initiative has been kickstarted with 3 focus projects as follows:
- Khelo Dilli
Through this innovative project, the Delhi Government will try to build world-class playgrounds in all Delhi Government schools. Tomorrow’s Olympians are not going to come from just 1 or 2 national stadiums in the country; each and every government school can have world-class infrastructure.
- City of Lakes
The Delhi Government is working on a massive plan to rejuvenate more than 1,000 water bodies that traditionally existed in Delhi and recharge the groundwater tables.
- Bridging Digital Divide in Schools
We have seen the impact of COVID-19 on education, and government school students do not always have access to digital devices. Through this project, the Delhi Government will enable all standard 10th & 12th students who are entering their board exams to have access to digital devices.
