An Evening with Dr. Rajendra Singh – The Waterman of India
Presented by Water Stories: Screening of the film Reviving Waters followed by a panel discussion.
* Thursday, March 30, 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
In the driest part of India, Dr. Rajendra Singh has helped bring water back to 250,000 wells, revived 13 rivers, increased the number of harvests possible in a year, and decreased the temperature in the region by 2 degrees.
Over 35 years Rajendra, through his organization Tarun Bharat Sangh, has brought water back to thousands of villages throughout Rajasthan. This was done through the process of community driven, decentralized water management. Through simple techniques of creating earthen water bodies called Johads and check dams, rivers in the driest part of India were revived.
If there has ever been a time for this approach to spread, it is now – and if there has ever been a place that needs it, it’s California.
Our first events with Rajendra sold out in just a few days. So due to popular demand we’ve added another evening talk on March 30 as part of the Reviving Rivers California Tour!
This evening will include a screening of the award winning film Reviving Rivers, followed by a presentation from Rajendra. Then there will be a brief panel discussion with Rajendra and regional experts, followed by questions from the audience.
Be the change you want to see in the world. Choose action and come join us at the Angelico Concert Hall in San Rafael to learn how to revitalize and heal landscapes through community-driven decentralized water retention.
