Meet the Water Man of India, Dr. Rajendra Singh who has transformed the barren landscapes of Rajasthan into flourishing eco-systems, purely through indigenous water harvesting structures.
He will be with us in Chennai, on Saturday, 27th May 2017, from 6.00 – 8.00 pm at Goethe-Institut, 4 Rutland Gate 5th Street to share his thoughts on how we can tackle this drought in TN, and most importantly, on sustained actions to make the state drought-free.
This is a call to all concerned citizens to join the session, to hear from the expert himself, and to commit ourselves to concrete actions to solve the pressing problem of water crisis.
It is time for all of us to come together again – Environmentalists, Academicians, Government Officials, Journalists, Corporates, NGOs, Professionals and Students – to restore water security for our State. We owe it, not just to ourselves, but to our children, for without water, what future will they have?
We look forward to you joining us.
