Water is a necessity for all and an essential part of each of our lives. Yet, our water is not accessible or safe for all. Our water sources are drying, being heavily polluted, and are often forgotten. We must recognize the greater implications of lacking water resources in the future. What is even more important is doing our bit to understand how water issues trespass borders, are rooted in injustice and hurt populations globally.
Joining us are two expert panelists from India to share their passion for water and its preservation. Dr. Sara Ahmed has 30 years of experience in the socio-political economy of water, is a founder of the Living waters museum, a visual repository on water and tracing water heritage. She also is a board member of several organizations concerning water issues globally. Ms. Shailaja Deshpande is a child psychologist, interior designer, and creator of the organization Jeevitnadi. Jeevitnadi works on the revival of rivers by promoting the active participation of citizens. The organization creates solutions to revive rivers on an individual and on a community level while also promoting toxin-free lifestyles to preserve rivers. Their voices have helped many to visualize water and hope to spread their knowledge to you.
