Ahmedabad is going green with India Environment Festival’s 2nd edition themed ‘I Am Water’, at the Ahmedabad Haat, Vastrapur, from February 16 to 18.
India’s “first community-dedicated multi-disciplinary annual festival” devoted to the environment, the India Environment Festival aims to bring to the world a more sustainable and creative tomorrow. Last year, the Festival generated awareness about waste management through the theme “Being Waste Positive“. This year, with the title “I Am Water”, its theme is water conversation.
Initiated by WAY (World Around You), the event is a brainchild of eco-entrepreneurs Wricha Johari & Prakshal Mehta who, since 2009, have been connecting the community with the environment through innovative initiatives. The highlight of the Festival is the opportunity to interact with inventor and education reformist Sonam Wangchuk from Ladakh, the man who inspired Aamir Khan’s character of Phunsukh Wangdu in the film 3 Idiots.
Over these three days, the festival will host a flea market called Hara Pitara, which is specifically dedicated to eco-friendly and organic products like food, apparels, clean technology, handicrafts, animal services, etc. Also in the lineup are seminars on water consumption and conservation, an eco-entrepreneur summit, a dog adoption show, a guided tour to the Nalsarovar Lake, art workshops and a creative storytelling session of Dastan-e-khanabadosh.
The event is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for young minds to become aware of the changes occurring in the environment and of how we can save it in our own ways. Considering that Gujarat is now experiencing a water shortage, with the government declaring through an advertisement that water supply for irrigation will be cut after February 15, till summer ends, to Surendranagar, Botad, Bhavnagar and Ahmedabad, we hope that the “I Am Water” theme of the festival will generate an impactful awareness about this precious and scarce life-resource.
