Sample Answer:
A few months back I participated in a seminar that was conducted by the city council to create the awareness among people so that they prudently use the water. It was probably the month of December and I was present in this seminar. In fact, one of my friends was an active member of the city welfare committee and he insisted me to join this seminar. This was mainly focused on requesting people to use water in a sensible way. The city authority was having a great problem regarding the unexpected increase of water demand and they found that more than 20% water can be saved if people use little senses and become aware of the great problems of the scarcity of water supply.

It was in the evening and was conducted in a large open field. There were around 400 people present in this seminar. The seminar started with the speech from the city counsellor and then other guests gave their speeches. Many interesting information and facts were presented on this seminar and it was so touchy that I promised myself that I would be very careful not to waste a single drop of water from now on.

I was mostly the listener of the great speeches given by the participants. I was sitting in the front row and watched the slides presented in the seminar. Then a rally was conducted in our neighbourhood and I walked with the people and hold a placard that said ‘Save water, save the future’.

I actually went there because of my friend’s request. But later on, I realised that it was a good seminar to attend and from this seminar I actually got inspiration to attend such seminars and rallies. My overall experience of this seminar was pretty good.
