The 7th travelling edition will travel to Mangalore for a five day festival from December 14th to 18th, 2016 with a focus on Netravati river. The five day festival will have curated film screenings, interactions, discussions, workshops, cleaning drive, etc across multiple venues. We will be engaging with state government officials, conservation experts, students, journalists and nature enthusiasts through our range of programmes.

Some of the issues that will be highlighted through curated discussions, eco tours and workshops are-

  • Water pollution
  • Municipal water supply

One of the most important highlights of the festival will be the Green Ambassador Award which will be conferred upon an environmental activist for his/her contribution to the conservation of the water bodies in the region. Announcement on the call for nominations will be published on the website in few months.

These programmes are organized in partnership with stakeholders such as government departments, educational institutions, NGOs, corporations, multi-lateral & bi-lateral organizations, media houses, etc.
