Face-to-face demonstration

Friday, September 30, 2022, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Classroom 0.A.03. Campus of Madrid-Pta. of Toledo of the UC3M. Ronda de Toledo, 1, 28005, Madrid. How to get?

An apparently simple question, links cosmovisions and ways of understanding the world and one of its fundamental elements, the basis of our daily well-being: water. Starting from the question, what is water for you?, we recorded the voice and asked the attendees to write what they understand by water. Then, based on excerpts from interviews with indigenous people who define their relationship with water, the attendees listen to their definition. In the current context of socio-environmental crisis, attendees are invited to question and reflect on their relationship/vision with water and daily well-being.
