Fog, Education, and Resilience in Morocco
Mon 24 April 2017, 11:00 – 12:30 BST
Dar Si Hmad is a local NGO promoting sustainable livelihoods in Southwest Morocco. Their innovative fog-harvesting system, which recently won the UNFCCC Momentum for Change Award at COP22, supplies rural communities with potable water for household use as well as reforestation and community garden projects. The Environmental Youth Ambassadors programme trains urban youth in journalism and education to bridge the gap between city and countryside. EYAs support the Water School, bringing environmental STEM education to marginalised communities in Ait Baamrane.
In this special seminar, representatives from Dar Si Hmad will share the technology of fog-harvesting, highlight local interventions for women’s empowerment and children’s learning, and talk about how this local case study is shaped by and can inform wider narratives of development, water security, and community resilience. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with a model of CloudFisher technology, view short environmental films produced by Moroccan young people, and participate in new videos being created to support the Water School.
