Clean up Nepal 2014 Rivers Day: Cleanup and Cycle Rally

Clean up Nepal Rivers Day 2014 was celebrated on the occasion of the International Day of Action against Dams and for Rivers, Water and Life on Saturday, 15 March 2014 from 8am onwards. The program provided a platform to celebrate and highlight the importance of our rivers, and more importantly the need to keep it clean and to make the banks of our rivers usable, functional spaces. It also incorporated a cycle rally component in our bid to promote cycling as a much healthier and more sustainable form of transport.
