The next city of the 7th travelling series is Tiruchirappalli with a focus on river Cauvery. A host of programmes including film screenings, discussions, workshops, cleaning drive, etc will be organized.

Another highlight 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.

Some of the issues that will be in focus during the festival are-

  • River pollution from waste and sewage
  • Municipal water shortage
  • Groundwater depletion
