Various activities are organised to promote and create awareness on the wetlands of Coromandel coast. The holistic Sustainable Development through Cultural Heritage is approached at three levels - grass-root, policy-makers, and international.  National level awareness campaigns are conducted to bring the attention of the government. Being a partner of United Nation Habitat under the World Urban Campaign, we take the issues of Pulicat Lagoon to the international forums.
