Pune Nadi Darshan is a campaign cum photography contest organised jointly by Rotary Water Olympiad and CIS-A2K on the occasion of ‘World Water Week’ celebrated from 16 March to 22 March 2022. This is a part of the larger WikiProject Rivers to document rivers in India on Wikimedia Commons.
The rivers are the lifelines of civilisation. In recent years, the rivers are only exploited as a source of water and sand as well as drainage lines for sewage and unwanted industrial effluents. A large part of the community is becoming ignorant about the rivers and don’t care to protect them as an important ecosystem and crucial part of nature. Many civil society organisations are active in the sector of river conservation, river rejuvenation and citizen science initiatives around the rivers.
Various campaigns and outreach programs are being organised to connect society with the rivers. The ‘Water Olympiad’ is one such initiative by Rotary Club in Pune. The ‘Jalbodh’ project by CIS-A2K to build a water knowledge repository on Wikimedia projects is being implemented in collaboration with similar organisations active in the water sector.
