On 14th of JUNE 2019, The Environmental Watch Association of Tanzania (EWAT) under the Department of Geography and Environmental studies at the Solomon Mahlangu College of Science and Education (SMCoSE) for the 3rd time had an awareness Friday night on what the Mother Nature is facing and how to adopt or mitigate the situation.
For this 3rd awareness night, people (more than 100 attendees) were made aware on the tragedy of WATER SCARCITY with our invited guest who is also the EWAT Guardian, DR KASSIM (DGES). The planet earth has been facing scarcity of water problem in more places and even greater droughts in many areas of the world without knowing that these effects are mostly contributed by human activities especially in this era of anthropocene.
Dr Kassim commenced the event and presented his project on the Availability of Freshwater with the use of Geospatial analysis which the audience had to ponder as it typically showed that our future is going to have freshwater scarcity.
Then later, moderator, Mr. Hatibu, Ghaamid. A ( The chairman of EWAT ) moderated the event in a Video showcase form on Water scarcity, its effects and showing the audience that we need to act immediately and to use water sustainably by beginning to change our individual behaviours. Several videos were presented and inspired the audience to make a change on how they can be responsible in their behaviours of consumption and even production and to be environmental in their activities. As around the world, people, ecosystems and species are suffering from the effects of water scarcity.
The end of the event was also a farewell for the current EWAT Leadership of 2018/19 and the welcoming of the new leadership!
The EWAT management send much thanks to all those who attended which comprised of different members from B.Sc. ESM, EAB, EGM, AEA, EGM, ECM, EGB, BRD and BTM And to all those who provided helping hands in making this event a success including the respective EWAT leaders.
