The open day included training on how to reduce water consumption and children’s awareness and their roles concerning conservation.

This year the theme for the world water day as declared by the UN is ‘Shared Water–Shared Opportunities’.

Mohammad Gaber, an Egyptian accountant living in the capital, said, “Water is secret of the life, so we must preserve it as much as we can and use it rationally because the world will face a huge water problem due to the changes in weather.”
