Ramveer Tanwar: From Engineering Student to Water Conservation Champion

Ramveer Tanwar, a 29-year-old resident of Gautam Buddha Nagar, transitioned from being a mechanical engineering student to a dedicated water conservationist. Inspired by the disappearing water bodies in his area, Tanwar initiated the ‘Jal Chaupal’ campaign with his batch mates, focusing on water conservation and addressing environmental concerns. Starting from his village Dadha, the campaign expanded to various villages in Uttar Pradesh.

Recognizing the urgent need for water conservation, Tanwar engaged with local communities, discussing water quality issues and implementing mitigation measures. He emphasized the importance of conserving natural resources like ponds, lakes, and wetlands. Tanwar’s efforts gained official recognition, leading to the restoration of numerous lakes and ponds in the region.

Leaving his corporate job, he became a full-time conservationist in 2016. Praised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Tanwar now serves as the Brand Ambassador of Swachh Bharat Mission, Ghaziabad, and the District Coordinator of ‘BhuJal Sena,’ Noida (Groundwater Force) appointed by the Government of Uttar Pradesh.
