In an effort to raise awareness on sustainable lifestyles and water conservations, the US Consulate in Chennai kicked off the Water Matters exhibition at the Periyar Science and Technology Centre on Monday. The exhibition will be open till February 29.
The event will host 53 panel discussions on science, innovation, and sustainable water management. Musical performances, master classes, seminars, heritage walks, dramas, quizzes and film screenings will also take place. Care Earth Trust Managing Trustee Dr Jayshree Vencatesan said, “Chennai gets adequate rainfall, has four rivers, and a seashore. Yet it has either too much of water or too little. Water Matters, through its public engagement, will strengthen the city-dwellers’ ability to maintain their resilience and improve water conservation.” Kiosks, interactive educational exhibits, and installations will be present.
