Water, a gift full of life

 

Humans are formed mostly by water. Three-quarters of our planet is water. These, and many other data, demonstrate us that the water is an essential element for the life. The presence or abstinence determinates everything, forms different ecosystems and, consequently, different substantially different landscapes.

On the other hand, water quality has direct consequences on any ecosystem, including the human ecosystem, not only environmental but also social. Let us now imagine what our life would be like if we lived in a community where there was not drinking water. Surely it would be radically different, surely worse.

In short, water is our most precious treasure, a gift that nature gives us, and as such we must manage it. It is essential to be aware of how much water contributes to our lives, and to make sustainable use of it.
