Invite you to a workshop 

 On

Ensuring Water Security, Hygiene, Sanitation and a Waste free Environment for all

 

 

CATALYZED AND SUPPORTED BY NATIONAL COUNCIL FOR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY COMMUNICATION, DEPT. OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, NEW DELHI

Introduction: As urbanization increases, the demand for water--Earth's finite freshwater supplies are increasingly strained, and also increasingly contaminated by domestic, agricultural, and industrial wastes. Today, many live in areas with scarce water resources and many lack access to an adequate water supply, and many more lack access to basic sanitation services and are constantly threatened by exposure to untreated waste. It is projected that by 2025 water scarcity will affect nearly two-thirds of all people on the planet.

 

Recognizing that water availability, water quality, sanitation and management of solid waste are fundamental issues underlying infectious disease emergence and spread, Environment Support Group in collaboration with Karnataka State Council for Science and Technology invite you to a public workshop to understand simple ways by which these issues can be addressed by all of us. Through simple local case studies and innovative examples, the workshop will provide participants opportunities to learn to improve water and sanitation infrastructure so as to reduce the risk of water-related and municipal waste related infectious disease. The workshop is for students, teachers, voluntary organizations, ward committee members, resident welfare associations and interested individuals.

 

The workshop will have sessions on Simple ways of Harvesting rain, easy steps to protect water bodies, possible solutions for managing municipal solid waste and the importance of hygiene for good health. The workshop will have interactive sessions with Resource persons from Karnataka State Council for Science and Technology, Environment Support Group and Public health professionals.
