World Water Day

Hello Friends, the World Water Day is celebrated every year on March 22. (World Water Day; avaible here)
 The objective of this day is to promote awareness about the relevance of water for our existence and other living beings. In addition, the evidences create a moment to remember the importance of the sustainable use of this resource and the urgent need to conserve aquatic environments, avoiding pollution and contamination.
This year's theme is " Water and Climate Change" and highlights the crucial importance of strengthening water safety and establishing access to a sustainable water supply in the face of changing climate conditions worldwide. The observance will also raise public consciousness about the many ways shifting atmospheric and oceanic conditions are reshaping the global hydrologic cycle.
As we all know, water is an essential nutrient and has a key role in the human body. We can survive up to numerous weeks without food, but only a few days without water. Every system in the body, from cells and tissues, to vital organs needs water to function. Human are not the only species on our planet that requires water for survival. Without water, the aquatic life will stand no chance of survival. It is highly important that we save water that is essential to our sustainability.
In Portugal, mainly in Gerês, we have beautiful crystal-clear waters in fountains and waterfalls, that we have to care off. (Visiti Porto and the North; avaible here)
 One of the most visited waterfalls is the Arado Waterfall, located on the Arado River, near the village of Ermida. The Fecha de Barjas Waterfall is another place that is very popular with tourists. This is a high mountain waterfall whose waters come from the Rio Arado and where you can only reach by pedestrian trails due to the difficult access. This waterfall ends in a calm and serene lagoon with sandy shores and crystal-clear waters. You can visit all these wonderful spaces with My GreenWay Tours, our team would love to create a custom and unique trail for you and for your loved ones.
