The Malta Independent on Sunday - - EDUCATION -

The HSBC Wa­ter Pro­gramme – Catch the Drop suc­cess­fully pro­moted the mes­sage of wa­ter con­ser­va­tion and aware­ness dur­ing two UNESCO-or­gan­ised ac­tiv­i­ties in Gozo.

At Wied il-Lun­z­jata, 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 cri- sis. The colour­ful pro­gramme in­cluded a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties 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 HSBC Wa­ter Pro­gramme – Catch the Drop also helped fund the se­cond edi­tion of Art Camp Malta or­gan­ised by the Mal­tese Na­tional Com­mis­sion for UNESCO and UNESCO’s As­so­ci­ated Schools Na­tional Co­or­di­na­tor. This event saw 27 i nter­na­tion­ally- es­tab­lished artists 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.
