The Institute of Technology and Research (ITP) participated in the 1st Environmental Exhibition in celebration of World Water Day on March 22nd, held at Shopping Riomar. The event aimed to raise awareness among the population about the importance of preserving water resources and involved the participation of various institutions such as the Government of the State of Sergipe, the Municipality of Aracaju, the Brazilian Navy, IBAMA, and Nação Arqui.
ITP set up a booth at the event to demonstrate affordable and efficient water decontamination techniques. Paulo do Eirado, the CEO of ITP, emphasized the significance of the institute's participation in the event. "ITP's participation in this event is of utmost importance, not only because of the day itself but also because of what it represents. Water is the foundation of life; all life on the planet depends on this element. We must have a great deal of responsibility in the use, reuse, and decontamination of water. All of this should be part of our education and reflect in our actions," he stressed.
Vivianne Andrade, the Sustainability Coordinator of Shopping Riomar, highlighted the importance of the partnership with ITP. "ITP's participation is unprecedented; we had never established partnerships before, and we greatly appreciate it. The opportunity to learn about water analysis and treatment techniques has significantly enhanced the event, and I'm certain it will convey an important message to the population."
José Carlos Felizola, the Secretary of State for the Environment, expressed his gratitude to ITP and other partners for their participation in the event, emphasizing the relevance of the services provided by the institute, particularly in the environmental field. "I would like to thank the Institute of Technology and Research and the Tiradentes Group, as well as other partners we have here. It is such an important day for the world to discuss water-related issues and educate children. We are delighted to have this partnership with ITP, which has provided remarkable services, especially in the environmental sector," he emphasized.
During the 1st Environmental Exhibition, visitors had the opportunity to learn about the water decontamination techniques presented by ITP, as well as the preservation and sustainability initiatives proposed by other participating institutions. The initiative sparked curiosity and interest among visitors, enabling them to better understand the importance of water preservation for the maintenance of life on the planet and the role that each individual can play in this process.
