The We Are Water Foundation at the Barcelona World Race Expo

All of the visitors to the Barcelona World Race Expo will be able to leave their message of solidarity at the We Are Water stand.

The We Are Water Foundation will be at the Barcelona World Race Expo with its own stand from 18 December to 6 January. Different activities will be carried out at the stand to raise awareness about the objectives of the We Are Water Foundation and raise funds for projects that it is conducting with various NGOs in relation to good water resource management.

The Barcelona World Race Expo, which will open on 18 December at the Port Vell in Barcelona, has been designed as a meeting place for all those wishing to find out about the regatta and related aspects.

Until 6 January, young and old alike will be able to find out how a new water culture can be achieved at the We Are Water stand at the Expo.

Some messages need to be taken around the world

One of the activities will enable visitors to support the boat and the We Are Water Foundation and its objectives by writing their messages that need to be taken around the world, which will be put in a huge We Are Water bottle.

Children will also be able to participate with a children's We Are Water flag drawing contest. The skippers of the We Are Water, Jaume Mumbrú and Cali Sanmartí, will choose the flag that best represents the values of the We Are Water Foundation in the most creative and entertaining manner.

In addition, once the regatta is under way, visitors to the website at www.wearewater.org will be able to track the yacht online via an interactive map, on which they will be able to see messages left by Jaume and Cali and also leave their own messages in the form of solidarity droplets. The objective of this tracking system is to raise funds and enable visitors to the website to leave messages of support that help raise public awareness about the serious problem of the lack of drinking water in the world, particularly in the most disadvantaged areas.

The objectives and messages of the We Are Water Foundation across the seven seas

The We Are Water Foundation is participating in the Barcelona World Race as a result of the union of objectives and synergies between this international regatta, which is closely related to effort and teamwork, and the We Are Water Foundation itself.

Taking advantage of the nautical challenge that this race represents and the recognition it brings with it, the We Are Water Foundation seeks to raise public awareness about the need to counter the negative effects caused by the lack of water resources in the world with the We Are Water boat, skippered by Jaume Mumbrú and Cali Sanmartí, with Jordi Griso heading the land-based team. "Some messages need to be taken around the world" is the slogan that the We Are Water will take to many countries, people and cultures during the 25,000-mile regatta.
