“It is very important that our students raise awareness by sharing this with their friends on an issue that is extremely important for the world, on a day that can be considered important for the world. In recent years, there has been water harvesting of rain in the world and in our country, and this issue is very important. It is necessary not to let the rains that pour these days go in vain. Work has begun on the accumulation of rainwater on the campus where we are, and it will save a lot of water.
IMPORTANCE OF WATER RESOURCES
AKK Board Chairman Halil İbrahim Yılmaz, who joined the youth program, made the following assessments:
“We have no other topic for World Water Day. Water is the fact of life, where there is no water, there is nothing else. We have a responsibility to carry out the process of water disappearance with a clear conscience. The Aral Sea is now concreted and has disappeared. We have the responsibility today to ensure that Lake Eymir and Lake Mogan do not disappear in Ankara, and that they do not return to the Aral Sea after 10 years. My young friends are able to teach us awareness, I speak for myself. I am not a teacher, I am a learner. In the surveys we have conducted, we have found that the environmental and climate awareness of young people is much higher than that of adults. One of the reasons why Mustafa Kemal Atatürk chose this city is that it is a city where solidarity, cohesion, mutual protection, common spirit are institutionalized and returned to the state.
Emphasizing that they expect all young people to attend the EKO Climate Summit to be held at the ATO Congress on March 30-31, 2022, Yılmaz continued his remarks as follows:
“We come from the feeling that there are young people who live in these lands with these feelings, who have an environmental and climate conscience in the laws since 1537. This is a geography where all civilizations can live in harmony. We need to raise awareness of this geography. Ankara is the city of beginnings. We said above Ankara that we should stigmatize this feeling. Prejudices have been shattered, camps have diminished. We said that this company can be the star of the world in the process of green transformation. Let’s lead our production style, our outlook on life, and determine our outlook on life. If you come, you will be given a job. Capital not only of culture and the arts, but also of education. This summit is important for our city. It is a summit where we can take the place we deserve in the economy, and the prejudices of countries that have prejudices about the environment can be broken. We fully expect you.
The program, which took place with the participation of bureaucrats, academics, experts and university students from relevant institutions and public organizations, ended with the theatrical performance of the women’s theater group Arslanköy under the direction of Ümmiye Koçak, titled “Mother, Sky Pierced”.
