Launch of "The Water Rooms"
When, local time:
Monday, 21 September 2015 (All day) to Friday, 9 October 2015 (All day)
Where does water come from? Will we run out of it? Who decides how much water we can use? Is there something we can do? In order to "connecting the dots" and enhancing the understanding of the general public on how we use our freshwater resources, WWAP UNESCO produced a unique project called "The Water Rooms". "The Water Rooms" consists of a visionary and inspirational itinerary of 5 short animated movies intertwined by 5 monologues that trigger interest and encourage learning about freshwater resources and their responsible and sustainable management.
The journey is finally about to start! The five videos and five monologues of “The Water Rooms” will be screened and performed live for the first time during a high-level launching event. The ceremony will take place at the prestigious Auditorium of the Italian Pavilion inside Expo Milan on Monday 21 September 2015.
Representatives from UNESCO, the Italian Ministry of Environment, Unilever and other partner organizations together with eminent international experts will introduce the initiative and guide the audience through this unique event. Exceptional music performances dedicated to water will enrich the programme with the presence of international renowned musicians and singers. The event is organized in the framework of the celebrations for the 70th UNESCO Anniversary, the commemoration of the International Day of Peace, and it’s part of the official initiatives under the UN Zero Hunger Challenge for Expo 2015.
