India: hydroponics for sustainable living

As part of the Green Week of Action (GAW), which takes place annually in the first week of October as part of a global campaign to promote sustainable consumption, the Madurai chapter focused on hydroponics to showcase its conservation activities in 2021.

The GAW campaign, an initiative of the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation, is carried out by 60 organizations in 40 countries. Indian coordinator CUTS International, the Jaipur-based global consumer protection group, works with and supports 12 organizations in 12 countries to work together to change people’s consumption patterns for sustainable living in the future.
