The sustainable use of water and the promotion of scientific vocations were the objectives of the program presented today by the
Today, the University of Salamanca, through the Center of Research and Technological Development of Water (CIDTA), presented the project ‘A scientific environment: Environmental outreach and promotion of scientific vocations through the environment’, whose objective is to convey to the students of Salamanca the importance of water and the scientific projects that are carried out about this vital resource.
To this end, a variety of activities were held throughout the week at the Cultural Center of Caja Espana Duero, targeting primary, secondary, upper secondary and vocational students.
It is very interesting to be a part of these initiatives aimed at young students of different ages not only because it helps them to see the importance of water and its rational use, but also because they can see scientific projects that are carried out at CIDTA about this most basic resource, which may lead to the involvement of these young people in similar scientific projects in the future.
This initiative is related to World Water Day, which will be celebrated next 22 March. The events are sponsored by the UN through its organization UN-Water, which aims to highlight the importance of water in its social dimension, its ability to generate well-being or misery, and the impact of its work.
