About this webinar
Can Water Be Wasted? How?
Our guest speaker, ex ISRO scientist- Ms. Poornima Savargaonkar ponders over this question during the webinar. It seems obvious to discuss along the lines of a water-conscious lifestyle- centering around judicious use of this non-renewable resource. But every rescue attempt first needs to evaluate the root cause. Analyze and then fix it.
Following the same approach, Ms. Poornima will first discuss if it is even possible to wastewater? Isn't water recyclable? And if it can be wasted, what are all possible ways we might be doing it daily? The webinar facilitates discussion around water-conscious lifestyle, raising and answering critical questions about the same.
