Urban Water Challenge 2018

A School Level Hackathon for the School Students in Bengaluru to come up with Innovative and Unique solutions to the growing crisis of Water Scarcity in the City. This competition is in collaboration with a Bengaluru based Organization Why Waste that work towards water conservation

The city of Bengaluru is undergoing an unprecedented shortage of water. A 2016 study by researchers in IISc reveals, that the city has lost nearly 79% water bodies due to rampant concretisation and industrialisation. The situation could worsen to an acute crisis in 2023 if cautious and immediate measures are not taken immediately. Realising the gravity of this situation, The Optimist Citizen and Why Waste has come together to conduct a city-wide Hackathon for the School Students in Bengaluru to come up with Innovative and Unique solutions to the growing crisis of Water Scarcity in the City that can be “realistically implemented within their school campus”.
