"One Water" Photo Competition- Wastewater as a Resource

The Global Environment Facility funded Caribbean Regional Fund for Wastewater Management (GEF CReW) Project and the United Nations Environment Caribbean Environment Programme are having a Photo Competition under the theme Wastewater as a Resource. 

The GEF CReW "One Water" Photo Competition is a part of the efforts of the project to increase knowledge and influence positive attitudes towards and perceptions of wastewater using visual representation of the opportunities for treated or partially treated wastewater reuse. The competition aims to demonstrate the importance of good wastewater management practices as crucial in reducing the pollutants that enter our waters. It also seeks to promote more planned use of treated wastewater by demonstrating real examples of how wastewater is being or can be used reused as a resource. The scope of the competition is unlimited and may provide examples that can be considered for replication across the Wider Caribbean Region, where feasible.  “One water” is selected as the name of the competition as it adequately denotes that all wastewater returns to the earth to become the water we once again use in everyday life and is therefore just as valuable.

Deadline: JUNE 5, 2017. Winners to be announced on World Ocean's Day- June 8, 2017

"Un Océano de Jazz. Joshua Edelman & Steve Turre en concierto".

 El pianista y compositor nepyorquino afincado en Bilbao propone desde su espacio Jazz Cultural Theatre of Bilbao en colaboración con Agua Sin Plásticos & Salud del Planeta y Nakusarbe, asociación para la divulgación de la ciencia y la cultura, un viaje musical a través de los fondos marinos de Euskadi y de otros lugares del planeta con el objetivo de sensibilizar a los públicos sobre la necesidad de cuidar y respetar  los ecosistemas marinos por nuestro presente y por el futuro de las generaciones venideras. Se trata de un espectáculo multidisciplinar y multicultural que tiene como leitmotiv la idea de que la conservación de las tradiciones culturales y la conservación de la naturaleza, “son la misma causa”, dice el músico neoyorquino. Este es el motivo por el que, desde su productora Jazz Basque Country, ha tomado la iniciativa de producir un espectáculo dedicado a la salud de los mares y océanos, que ha titulado “Un océano de Jazz”.

Para esta ocasión Joshua Edelman contará con un invitado especial venido de Manhattan: Steve Turre, uno de los trombonistas más emblemáticos de los últimos cincuenta años de la historia del jazz, que, además, traerá consigo el sonido en directo de las caracolas del mar. Más de quince artistas de diferentes culturas y procedencias, dirigidos por Edelman, subirán al escenario en un espectáculo en el que convivirán el auténtico hardbop neoyorquino, el folklore vasco, la percusión afrocubana, y otras herencias musicales, con espectaculares audiovisuales de fondos marinos de diferentes lugares del planeta cedidas por la Asociación Nakusarbe tomadas por el biólogo marino Alberto Santolaria, ganador de varios galardones en diferentes ediciones de certámenes de cine submarino de Euskadi.

Ven a disfrutar de este concierto y participa con nosotros en la misón de mantener limpios los océanos de residuos plásticos.

“Beach and Marine Environment Protection Club” (BMEPC)

Sustainability for Ocean Protection

Hotels & Resorts situated on the Coastal belt of South India to form a club “Beach and Marine Environment Protection Club” (BMEPC) to commit to actions to “Protect the Ocean & Marine life” so it can continue to sustain us all into the future for developing strategies to act on long term solutions to the impact that Plastic, rubbish, and disposal of raw sewage has to be stopped and keep the beaches clean through continuous process, to educate the staffs on the dangers of Marine Pollution and Global Warming and climate change ,causing marked shifts in ocean environments and ecosystems.

The Aim of this club is to educate the citizen about the waste disposable should be carefully placed in the appropriate place so that it doesn’t end up fouling our oceans, rivers and lakes. We cannot take our marine environment for granted, nor treat it carelessly.

Hotels & Resorts situated on the Coastal belt of South India will form an agenda by partnering to reduce marine debris by constant routine beach & under water cleaning in association with agencies experts in underwater diving and Marine studies to have a close watch on keeping the Marine life safe from debris & pollution.

Planning to launch the Club on the 8th June 2017 on the World Oceans day.

There will be approximately 40 hotels coming in the belt but we will rope in backwater resorts also.

Being a hotelier in beach front of Kovalam, I felt like myself there are many fellow hoteliers who are there along the coastal belt. We all can start the mission and take up to entire Indian Coastal belt.

Looking forward for your support & co operation..

Thanks & regards

Raja Gopaal Iyer
