CSE training program on river pollution

CSE's short-term training programme on : Meeting the challenge: River pollution Training Dates: November 13-16, 2007 Indian rivers are under serious threat from spiralling urbanisation and industrialisation. This situation has arisen despite the huge investments made by subsequent governments in cleaning them up. As a result, our survival -- and that of rivers -- is at stake.

Numerous questions come to the mind in such a scenario: Why are India's rivers dying? Why haven't river cleaning programmes worked? How will urban development programmes like Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission impact rivers? Have common effluent treatment plants been able to address the issue of industrial wastewater management? Can our rivers be cleaned? As citizens, do we possess the right to have clean rivers? Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites applications and nominations for its training programme 'Meeting the challenge: River pollution', which attempts to answer these and other related questions. All in the course of four action-packed days. Who can attend: Activists, NGO representatives, researchers, writers and communicators, policy makers, students, citizens… in short, anyone interested in fighting for our rivers.
