Ambiente de Teatro
The pilot project also resulted from the water workshop in Sinai. This workshop was launched on the occasion of Academia Engelberg Foundation’s 6th Dialogue on Science in 2007.
The experience gained during the stay with the Bedouins will be shared with various countries to help them find their own solutions through role play and to raise public awareness of the issue.
The project ‘Ambiente de Teatro’ was realized in the late summer of 2009 in Cartagenas de Indias, Colombia, with the support of Academia Engelberg Foundation.
Theater students created a play that focused on the local challenges of water management and possible solutions to encourage active involvement. The project was so successful that it was repeated at another school in Cartagena in 2010.
