April 26th 2015, Air Itam Dam, Pulau Pinang: In conjunction with the Air Itam Dam Hike-a-thon 2015 and World Water Day 2015 celebration in Penang, MENGO together with its member, EcoKnights, participated in this island-wide event.
The World Water Day is a global celebration to raise awareness on issues and concerns related to water. In 2015, the theme for World Water Day is ‘Water and Sustainable Development’.
MENGO member, Water Watch Penang (WWP), partnered with Perbadanan Bekalan Air Pulau Pinang this year for the event which was flagged off by the honorable Mr. Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Pulau Pinang.
The event started at 7 am and ended promptly at 5 pm. Many fun and engaging activities were organized from coloring competition for children, lucky draw, and mini games.
MENGO and EcoKnights shared a booth and conducted fun public engagement activities to share with the visitors their organization’s focus areas and activities. MENGO also raised funds through other activities, apart from displaying posters and communication materials on their current projects and effort. The feedback from the public was very encouraging, and we would like to thank WWP for inviting us over to the event.
