A large waterfall will be projected on the dome of the National Museum of the Republic, in Brasilia, on Thursday (22), World Water Day, starting at 6:30pm. It is an installation by the visual artist Siron Franco, who wants to draw attention to the importance of the careful use of water, in addition to being part of the attractions of the 8th World Water Forum, which takes place in the federal capital until 23 march. More than 43 thousand people have visited the event.
Water is present in every form of life, but only human communities, according to the cultural characteristics, and locations, display diversity in the way they feel and perceive its presence and indispensability. Be it in the religious, spiritual, political or even economic perception, the fact is that water is always present in everyday life. Representatives of different nations, countries and peoples have shared part of their world view with regards to water, in the session titled “Cultures of sharing and the rights of nature”, held in the afternoon on the 21st of March, at the Ulysses Guimarães Convention Center, which hosts the 8th World Water Forum.
On Wednesday (21), the panel "Innovation of young Water Entrepreneurs", at the 8th World Water Forum reached audiences of all ages. In it, young entrepreneurs submitted actions to improve the quality of access to water as a factor of social transformation. The main objective of the session was to promote the exchange of experiences in social innovation in the water sector, present challenges and stimulate the commitment of more people to the cause.
