Biome has been a part of Citizen Science project that aims at fostering knowledge based engagement for citizens around lakes. As a part of engaging citizens, it is important to educate citizens about their lakes, it’s features, its community and about administration of the lakes. In this context, it was appropriate to have Display boards that give information installed at lakes.

While Biome Environmental Trust(Biome) has spearheaded this activity, MAPSAS, the lake community has provided support in terms of getting necessary approvals, providing necessary information, and providing infrastructure required for execution.
ATREE(Ashoka Trust for Research in Environment and Ecology), has made this entire project possible by not only mobilising CSR funds from Oracle but also spearheading and driving the overall Citizen Science project.
Biome has also worked with creative designers like Adira Andlay, who designed the display board and her creative ideas, thoughts have shown expression in the display board. The printing and installation of the display board was done by Mr. Prasad of Signhive Printers.
Rekha Arun, the translator of text from English to Kannada has helped us reach out to a larger community by her work.
We would also like to thank BBMP for its continued support in this project.
