Manifesto di Treviso a difesa dell’acqua

Il Manifesto di Treviso a difesa dell’acqua sintetizza i princìpi basilari per una buona gestione delle risorse idriche e indica alcune delle azioni fondamentali che è necessario intraprendere urgentemente per un utilizzo più attento e corretto di questo bene essenziale alla vita.

Il Manifesto, elaborato nel 2021 in occasione del convegno “L’orologio dell’acqua”, viene promosso su scala provinciale, regionale e nazionale a partire dal 22 Marzo 2022 (Giornata Mondiale dell’Acqua), grazie alla collaborazione nata tra l’associazione Premio Letterario Giuseppe Mazzotti, il Centro Internazionale per la Civiltà dell’Acqua Onlus, e la Rete Mondiale dei Musei dell’Acqua (“iniziativa faro” di UNESCO-IHP).
