We were able to encourage the Youth, present and deliver the Water Primer= positive news for fair global citizens - special edition water (76 pages) as an award prize to Yana Nazarova (Russia) and Emel Zerrouk (Canada) as produced by PNYV / Zauberhand now also Youth Leader, represented by Eric N. Schneider and for IHTEC, headed by Dame Julia Morton-Marr IHTEC, headed by Dame Julia Morton-Marr, and were able to combine and connect nicely the events of the last 4 days in Geneva - see below in this blog.
