Waste Matters

Did you ever hear about the three R-words? Reduce, Recycle and Reuse, those three will do the trick to create a clean and healthy city.

Waste is smelly, disgusting and useless you might think. But Navneeth Raghavan from Daily Dump will change your mind about this and show you that waste indeed matters! She urges children, parents and teachers to look at the rich resource of organic material - which we dismiss as waste - with new eyes.

Daily Dump is a Bangalore-based project committed to the idea of the three R-words, which tries to raise awareness about waste matters. While the Germans are considered to be the champions of recycling and waste management, it is time for India to pick up some of those ideas and go for a change.

So join the workshops and find out where waste comes from and where it goes, what the simple rules of separating waste are and why plastic bags are a no-no! In the end of the workshop, you will get the chance to practice what you have learned and help in keeping your Dream City a Clean City.

The workshop is mainly addressing students from 9 to 12 years from different Chennai schools, who will be invited to the Urban Mela to dream about their ideal cities. Of course other interested visitors are welcome to participate there as well.
