2022 was a year of special significance since it marked 20 years of Ramsar Declaration for the East Kolkata Wetlands as a Wetland of International Importance. It is also a very special year for SCOPE as it won the Bhagirath Prayas Samman for 2022 from the India Rivers Forum, a network of organisations (ATREE, IIHS, INTACH, People’s Science Institute, Toxics Link, Peace Institute, SOPPECOM, SANDRP, WWF-India, Veditum), who promote and encourage all those unsung heroes who work tirelessly to protect our rivers. SCOPE is the only recipient from West Bengal of this prestigious award. Watch our interaction video here.
