“Water is life. From nature to you … | WATER is life. From nature to you…” This is the video message from Australian nomad Jackson Groves, who wants to raise awareness of the importance and value of water in Madeira. This is one of the initiatives created by Águas e Residuos da Madeira (ARM) to mark World Water Day, which was celebrated today, the 22nd of March.
In their statement ARM wrote: “Water is a valuable asset across planet earth. In Madeira it is an extremely important resource, born in the north of the island and is transported to the south, through the historic levadas. Today, the 22nd of March, World Water Day, we honour this essential resource for life and those who, daily, work to bring it from nature to our homes. It is a long and laborious journey that must be valued and respected.”
ARM thus aims to raise awareness of the importance of preserving this essential asset for life, which is scarce and must be used efficiently in all activities of our daily lives.
The video includes some incredible footage.
