Volunteering Opportunity @ CASC’s Initiative for Environmental Protection & Political Reforms: Applications Open

Centre for Accountability and Systemic Change is working towards good governance through systemic reforms. Over a span of last few months, CASC has been successful in getting Punjab & Haryana High Court to notify usage of double-sided papers, which may save thousands of trees and crores of litres of water.

As per Orders of Hon’ble Chief Justice, E-Committee of the Delhi High Court is also considering doing the same. The petition seeking the same is pending before Supreme Court.

#MeToo is a fight for women safety as envisaged in Constitution of India. After intervention of CASC, Union Minister for Women and Child Development directed political parties to form Internal Complaints Committee.

CASC also assisted the Supreme Court in matter relating to live streaming of video proceedings, and the Supreme Court is also hearing its petition on appointment of Grievance Officer by WhatsApp in India.

CASC is now aiming to get the reforms enforced at the ground level, for which it seeks motivated volunteers. The volunteers will be working towards

  • Having the system of use of double-sided papers incorporated in the High Court of their State as per representation already sent by CASC
  • Having the political parties of their State to publish details of Internal Complaints Committee on their website/social media as per representation of CASC to Election Commission.

The volunteers will be connected online to CASC, and CASC will provide them with requisite mandate to perform the task. Successful volunteers will be given certificates and reimbursement of actual expenses. The volunteers having maximum impact will get a chance to intern at the office of CASC in New Delhi.
