The message of water conservation and awareness was promoted through the HSBC Water Programme – Catch the Drop, during two UNESCO-organised activities at Gozo’s picturesque Lunzjata Valley.
The UNESCO Education, Science and Culture Centre (ESCC) joined the rest of the international community in commemorating World Water Day, an annual event which aims to create awareness about the water crisis.
A variety of activities were included in the colourful programme, such as songs by students, positive messages, and an appeal by children to the country’s authorities.
During the event, the ESCC also launched its first publication for children ‘Mixja f’Wied il-Lunzjata’ (A walk in Lunzjata Valley) which was sponsored by the HSBC Catch the Drop Campaign.
The second edition of Art Camp Malta organised by the Maltese National Commission for UNESCO and UNESCO’s Associated Schools National Coordinator, also received funding from the HSBC Water Programme – Catch the Drop.
27 internationally-established artists were given the opportunity to take up residence in Gozo and exchange ideas as how to further reinforce the role of culture as an essential tool in sustainable education through art and promotion of peace.
