Press Release for World Water Day 2023 – Caribbean Youth Environment Network (CYEN)

Press Release for World Water Day 2023

World Water Day is recognized on March 22nd each year. This year, the Barbados Chapter issued a press release highlighting the drought-like conditions the island has been facing during the month of March which were partially responsible for the grass fires the island was battling. These sorts of events (fires) during drought-like conditions can cause further stress on the island’s water supply and therefore we must practice water conservation measures at work, school and home. The press release also highlighted the Water Audit Project which CYEN in partnership with Graydon Sealy, Harrison College and Foundation Secondary School will be undertaking. It has been estimated that the youth population of the island spend more than half of their time at school and therefore, the amount of water schools use is important to note.
