CYWP participated in the European Researchers’ Night 2023

Feb 28, 2024 | Announcements, Events

On 29/9/2023 our YWP team participated in the European Researchers’ Night 2023 with the following activity:

Topic: Exploring the Secrets of Clean Water
Organizations: Cyprus Young Water Professionals and Water Treatment Laboratory AQUA
Booth: 32
Location: Cyprus State Fair Pavilions A&B, Nicosia

Through our activity we demonstrated a small-scale model/display with the basic processes that a water treatment plant uses (sieves, coagulation, sedimentation, rapid sand and activated carbon filtration, and chlorination) as well as various methods used to characterize its physicochemical parameters. Furthermore, various actions of the Cyprus Water Association and especially those of Young Water Professionals, will be presented. The focus of the activity lies on educating the public about water purification and distribution within Cyprus’ urban network but also on preparing educational material and games on water treatment that will engage the interest of young children.
