Survey suggest that by 2030 rivers in India will be having only 50 percent of water in it. To stop drying of rivers, lots of people, students from SGT university and other college students started a rally to create awareness about the upcoming situation.
Rally will be covering lots of major and minor cities in India. Students from SGT university, viteee taking up viteee 2018 and other university students will be educating the people about the precaution needed to be taken to save the rivers in India. Many of the small rivers in India have vanished. The Ganga and Indus are two of the world’s most endangered rivers, according to WWF. Water level in almost every major river have declined severely.
With over a decade of experience in matters related to the environment and sustainability, SGT university offers a core solution to stabilize and revitalize our rivers. It involves creating and maintaining tree cover for a minimum of one kilometer on either side of the entire river length and half a kilometer for tributaries. Trees will be planted in the government owned land along river banks as well.
This solution ensures that the rivers are restored and helps in rivers perennial, mitigate floods and drought, increase precipitation, mitigate climate change and prevent soil erosion. Isha organization are playing a major role in bring this rally to life. Our wellbeing and the nation’s wellbeing is connected to the wellbeing of our rivers. Rivers are the backbone for farmers. It’s each and every individual Indian’s responsibility to take part in the rally towards the river and protect the country from the occurrence of a disaster.
