In Isla Urbana we are very interested in environmental education. The water problems of our country, will not be resolved with purely technical solutions, but rather with the participation and awareness of the population.
Many schools in Mexico do not even have an adequate supply of water. This gives us the opportunity of working with them, both to ensure there is supply and to involve new generations of children in the development of a culture of care, love and value for water.
