On May 19th, 2023, 1-2 PM UTC, Ronald Gervasoni and Walkyria Novais, from SANEPAR, will guide us through a live tour at the Planet Water Museum in Tarumã, Curitiba, Brazil. The Museum is an important space for education and awareness about the importance of water and sanitation and it has several interactive exhibits that address topics such as the water cycle, the importance of sewage treatment and the preservation of rivers and oceans. Through educational, playful and fun experiences, the Museum is a valuable tool for engaging the community in SANEPAR’s sustainability practices. They will emphasise the fundamental role of sanitation in the conservation of the oceans, since the lack of basic sanitation is a major problem for the health of the oceans and the quality of life of the population.
