Mr. Ramveer Tanwar

Better known as PondMan- Environmentalist,
TEDx Speaker, Founder of Say Earth

Mr. Ramveer Tanwar, is an Environmentalist has been passionate about water conservation from his student days. During his graduate years,

Mr. Tanwar had begun a campaign Jal Chaupal in Gautam Buddha Nagar district of Uttar Pradesh, urging people to conserve water and to save natural resources like ponds and lakes. Ramveer received training at the Central Pollution Control board, MOEF, Govt. of India, for the conservation of Groundwater. Ramveer Tanwar started the cleaning and rejuvenation process of the lakes and ponds. Tanwar grew up in the little village of Dadha in Uttar Pradesh, India and spent his childhood helping his dad, who's a farmer like most people in the area and playing by lakes and ponds with his friends. While clean water levels are declining throughout India, the crisis is especially bad in remote regions like where Tanwar hails from. A lot of wetlands were polluted and have became dumping grounds instead. The budding environmentalist realized it wasn't chemical waste but simply the garbage that people threw out without thinking of the consequences, that was the root cause of the problem. So, he decided that it was time to change this and educate people about the importance of clean water. Now Mr. Tanwar is the founder of Say Earth NGO and appointed district co-coordinator of the 'Bhu-Jal Sena' by the Government of Uttar Pradesh. Mr. Tanwar has contributed to restore and rejuvenate 52 ponds and lakes in all over India.
