United We Stand: 1500 Volunteers Resuscitate Bengaluru’s Ulsoor Lake

United We Stand: 1500 Volunteers Resuscitate Bengaluru’s Ulsoor Lake 1

Water Pollution. Eutrophication. Sewage Debris. Dying aquatic ecosystems.

Can these be more than paragraphs in a science text book?

In the “city of lakes” at least, this is a household reality as we are abundantly blessed with beautiful lakes numbering to roughly 380 which are on the brink of death.

Sadly, it has come down to a measly 80 now.

Robbing the sleep of one regular Bengaluru techie, this problem kept Anand Malligavad up all night. He knew that something needs to be done immediately.

After kicking off with reviving Kyalasanahalli Lake near Anekal, there is no stopping him.

His hope of mobilizing support and 500 volunteers for the clean-up of Ulsoor Lake touched the sky when the numbers shot to 1500!

Post the drive, Anand’s team collated intellectual resources from the crowd and formed them into groups of 50 in terms of areas such as water management, sewage, green issues etc which ensures a strong set up for further similar lake work. Anand hopes to rope in the military also for the project.

With the help of experts, a clear solution strategy has been thought out for the project’s effective culmination in the coming months.

What can you do?

Join hands with us in our effort to save the lakes of Bengaluru with our Wake the Lake project!
