Together with landscape planners, engineers, eco-activists and cultural-creative folks from Bangalore/India and all over, we together focus on urban water bodies within our upcoming “Lake-of-Change” MakerCamp.
„Lake of change“ starts as a participatory process and cross-cultural happening on a “Kalyani” (Indian temple-tank) in Bangalore/India. Our goal is to prototype a variety of EcoDesigns, capable to improve the treatment and overall quality of the city’s water bodies. The approach is interdisciplinary and experimental: we welcome all ideas, designs, concepts and best-practices that can help transform the neglected water bodies into creative, healthy public spaces. We envision productive lakes with local food production, social entrepreneurships and culture, sports and leisure facilities on and around the patronized biospheres. The huge potential of urban water-bodies is waiting to be discovered at the “Lake of change” and beyond. Download info pdf for the Lake-of-Change
