Amity’s WLW 2021 kicks off with second virtual townhall
The second Amity Foundation’s Living Water Townhall took place on March 22. The virtual conference also kickstarted Amity’s Walk for Living Water 2021. Every spring on the U.N. World Water Day, Amity invites people to join the Walk for Living Water to raise funds for water deprived communities in China and overseas as well as raise awareness about the human issues due to water insecurity.
In Amity’s second townhall implementing partners from Sri Lanka and the Philippines shared about their daily challenges and how water projects changes lives of the marginalized people.
About 60 people joined this townhall, including students from Fanling Kau Yan College, whose enthusiasm on the SDG 6 Clean Water and Sanitation was commendable.
Anthony Tong, Executive Director of Amity HK elaborated on educational benefits of such events: ”This new format of outreaching allowing students to take charge in organizing experimental learning is the best means to engage young people, to broaden their horizon and to have them ‘buy in’ on such environmental initiatives.”
Supporters have until 22nd April to design their own routing, plan their own schedule and conduct their unique walks to make a difference in the world.
