Seema is planning to engage with college students to evaluate water quality, flora and fauna around Jakkur lake and build a longterm relationship and sense of responsibility between the students and the lake. Her approach is to go beyond 1 day volunteer events but encourage a regular engagement with the lake and elaborate on the value of close monitoring and data collection.
