The ability of humans to manipulate the environment around us and recognize the consequences of doing so puts us in a distinctive position. As a species, it is our duty to establish stability for ourselves as well as other beings. However, we also have an obligation to conserve the environment as we depend on the resources and services it provides. This was also the topic of the last lecture of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam - Creating a Livable Planet Earth, which he was supposed to give at IIM-Shillong.
Our Right to Water project aims to create a water-secure and water-efficient India through quality research, education innovation, volunteer connections, better community participation and governance.
To facilitate the public outreach and extension activities, we have also developed content consumable in schools, including the Keto and Water Warriors comic book series, board games, and Water Facts cue-cards.
