A people's movement to initiate, sustain and grow action for conserving the Western Ghats and rest of Karnataka's forests for a future with drought resilience.
United Conservation Movement (UCM)
was conceived during the ‘Save Bandipur’ campaign. It now is rallying support to sensitize the sanctity of retaining Western Ghats as it is.
In a rather significant development, people from all walks of life, from all over Karnataka are coming together to create a united forum, and protect the future of water in the State.
The single-minded purpose of the United Conservation Movement, will be to protect our forests and water sources from ill-conceived, intrusive, big projects that have the potential to destroy our water security. Besides which, we will collaborate with and encourage the Government to look at future-friendly, people-friendly models of development.
