Better Bhalswa

WoW

Bhalswa today is an urbanscape perturbed by waste. A seemingly unsurmountable problem, waste seems to affect everything and everyone, spanning concerns on housing, real estate, environment, 

There's worth in waste.
Worth in Waste, WoW, is a program to pilot decentralised waste management at Bhalswa Dairy, as a means to close the loop, and improve livability. The program aspires to create a visible change for the communities living at Bhalswa through placemaking and light infrastructural interventions.

The program commences with engaging the community by addressing their concerns through best practices in decentralised waste management to help the people realise its benefits, including those pertaining to health, environment, and local economy. As a means to address a diverse audience is the intent to partake in a set of workshops with young children at the local primary school, and with adults through public workshops and focused group discussions with Residential Welfare Organisations.
