GREEN EARTH MARATHON

Water Indeed Is The Elixir Of Life

The importance of water as a natural resource needs no re-iteration. Sadly, the term ‘water footprint’ has been trending in recent times. The trend reflects the sudden emergence and global realization of a severe water crisis.

For those of us who wonder why the crisis despite the majority of the Earth being covered with water? Well, 97% of all the water is saltwater, unsuitable for consumption. 0.5% out of the 3% freshwater is available for drinking as the rest is locked in glaciers, ice beds, and earth’s atmosphere.

Despite earth being a self-contained ecosystem, the strain on the water resources has begun affecting the global citizens. The credit goes to the exploitative human activities since the civilization walked its first steps on earth. Phenomenal population growth, global warming, climate change, reduced rainfall, industrial developments and careless water consumption at the household level are the major driving factors behind the crisis.

In India, a land blessed with one of the most comprehensive river systems in the world, the gravity of water crisis echoes louder than ever. As per the NITI AAYOG report, by the end of 2020, most of the Indian states will be affected by major droughts and a severe shortage of drinking water.

Unless water conservation transforms into a mass movement, preserving this crucial natural resource may prove to be a daunting task. And that is exactly why the Bengaluru Green World Marathon is relevant.

Bengaluru Green World Marathon –Because Every Drop Counts  

The first edition of the Bengaluru Marathon is being organized to raise awareness about the multiple facets of the water crisis, the significance of grassroots management, multiple methods of water conservation, our ancient heritage of water management, and drawing the attention of policymakers towards alternative methods of water management. Other activities include a competition among Engineering Graduates for innovative solutions and a painting exhibition around the theme. So, let’s participate and make every drop count!
