We had the privilege of attending the opening of the Water Roadshow in Westfalenpark, Dortmund. This aim of this project is to raise children’s and adults’ awareness of water scarcity. We grow up with the knowledge that we have an almost unlimited supply of water. All we need to do is turn the tap on and clean drinking water comes out. We don’t even appreciate the incredible luck that we have because it’s a normal part of our everyday. What would it be like, however, if we no longer had easy access to this vital commodity. This Water Roadshow was conceived with the aim of making people conscious of this feeling and raising awareness of water scarcity in many parts of the world. Four interactive stands encourage visitors to carry 20 litres of water for 60 metres and see for themselves how much energy is needed. Water immediately takes on a different meaning for us as we experience first-hand the lengths that some people have to go to get clean drinking water.
After the official opening, we were able to watch the documentary film Tomorrow in Westfalenpark’s open air cinema. This exciting film presents solutions that are open to everyone so that they can make a lasting improvement to life on earth.
We would like to thank Neven Subotic and his foundation for allowing us to be a part of the Roadshow! You did a great job and managed to get an amazing event off the ground!
