Inviting Applications for the Urban Water Bootcamp (Chennai)

Urban water systems and the people who rely on them are under threat from factors such as climate change, deteriorating infrastructure, and an ever-increasing population. Many of the water supply and sustainability issues in Indian cities remain unresolved. 

In partnership with Care Earth Trust, we are inviting Chennai-based organizations committed to working on urban water solutions for a Bootcamp that will offer participants access to a series of online lectures on urban water management between December 2021 – January 2022. At the end of the training, participants will be mentored by subject experts to apply for Wipro Foundation’s Urban Ecology Small Grants Program.  

Chennai-based water conservation projects and ideas which are participatory, and community-based, are encouraged to apply. 

Thematic areas covered in the Bootcamp:  

  • Wetlands of Chennai  
  • Basics of urban hydrology  
  • Wetland Ecology  
  • Wetland management  
  • Mapping wetlands  
  • Reuse and recycling of water
