World Water Day, celebrated each year on March 22, is an amazing opportunity to take action to help protect and restore water worldwide. Started in 1993 by the United Nations, World Water Day serves as a catalyst for projects and campaigns dedicated to celebrating and protecting this invaluable resource. For Intel Corporation, a leader in water restoration worldwide, the day is an important one as they lead others throughout the year in the sustainable protection of water.
With a goal to restore 100% of water use by 2025, Intel Corporation manages multiple water restoration projects around the world. In India, Intel is currently rejuvenating Lake Nanjapura, located on the south side of Bengaluru. When finished, the project will restore over 34 million gallons of water back to the earth each year. Working in partnership with CLEAN International and Bengaluru-based Say Trees, Lake Nanjapura restoration started in early 2020 and will finish in June with a rejuvenated lake and the establishment of a Miyawaki forest of over 6,000 trees. This restoration project is part of a city-wide initiative to help recharge groundwater in this beautiful “City of Lakes”, home to over 10 million people.
Beyond India, Intel works in communities around the world to address local water needs in sustainable ways. Serving as a leader to multiple industries, Intel has a huge vision for how we can all give back and work together to ensure a future of clean water for everyone. Learn more at intel.com/water
