ENI CBC Med Programme

One of the main activities within the Mediterranean Integrated System For Water Supply (MEDISS) project is to raise awareness and gate support, and active engagement in water management (agricultural practices, non-conventional water supply, and sustainable development goals) and to enable the efficient application of MEDISS innovative solutions for local institutions and local communities.

MEDISS partners are actively involved in the implementation of the programme. Last month, the Jordanian partner, Aqaba Water Company, organised and facilitated the Sixth Awareness Session for Tenth Secondary Mixed School management, teachers and students in the city of Aqaba, Jordan.

The most interesting topics considered by the attendees were: the proportions of drinkable water, how to use it correctly, the amount of water used in our daily habits, and the extent of the possibility of changing attitudes to contribute to saving water.

The main objective of this awareness campaign is to highlight how treated water will be used for agricultural purposes and the quality of new drinking water and saving methods. In addition, the session aims to transfer knowledge of how to use water efficiently and for the young pupils to be the mentor in the family to have the most significant impact.
