The Community is showing the #DanzaxAgua photography exhibition at the Metro de Canal station
The Community of Madrid is showing the #DanzaxAgua photography exhibition at the Metro de Canal station, featuring nine dancers from the Spanish National Ballet and the Spanish National Dance Company. An exhibition that, on the occasion of the World Water Day, seeks to raise awareness among the people of Madrid about the care and protection of water, one of the most important and necessary natural resources in the world. The exhibition, curated by Katalina Mikhailova, is based on 12 images from the Hijos del Plástico and H2VIDA collections created by the social photography paper magazine Fearless and Madrid-based artist Miky Guerra and reflects the cruel metaphor of how the planet will end up if we don't take care of it. The exhibition will be on display at Canal station (lines 2 and 7) free of charge until 8 June, on the occasion of World Oceans Day.
The Regional Minister for Housing and Local Administration, David Pérez, and the Regional Minister for the Environment, Territorial Planning and Sustainability, Paloma Martín, visited the exhibition today, which aims to raise awareness of responsible water use, the correct recycling of plastic and the conservation of rivers and oceans. The Community of Madrid, within its commitment to care for this natural resource, is committed to implementing the circular economy model to use water more times. In this sense, by means of the Canal de Isabel II, 90% of the production of reclaimed water is destined to the environmental care of rivers. Of the 126 million cubic metres, 113 were discharged into the watercourses to clean and improve their quality. The rest of the production was used for irrigation of public green areas, street cleaning and industrial uses, among others.
