Clean Water Bonaire

Helder water Bonaire Schoon water Bonaire Helder water Bonaire

Bonaire could play an important or even leading role in the biggest environmental issue of this century: WATER. The island is famous for its clean coastal waters but also has one of the cleanest drinking water sources in the world. Water is a hot issue for the future and our crown Prince Willem Alexander plays an important role in the advocacy to create global awareness as the first real Water Ambassador. The European Union approved a water cleaning project for Bonaire to create clean water basins not only for Bonaire but also to supply its neighboring island. As soon as feasible infrastructure is available ‘water conferences’, workshops and congresses can be organized to place Bonaire on the global map of Water Awareness. This would find international support for the establishment of a “Water Coordination Center” on Bonaire.


Bonaire: Passion for Water


Relating this water topic to environmental management and the engagement of Crown Price Willem van Oranje, it has been suggested to plant a Maxima wood on Great Bonaire and an Alexander palm wood at Little Bonaire, to express appreciation for him and his wife. Trees are very important to control the water household of an area and they provide shelter for the sun, enabling flora to develop lush at Bonaire and Klein Bonaire.


BONAIRE WATER AWARD

CBC invited leading personalities to establish a Committee which grants annual BONAIRE WATER AWARDS to a person, group, organization or event, contributed significantly to create more awareness for the importance of water for mankind. The Committee will elect 5 nominees and announce the winner at an annual gala event in Kralendijk. The organization (CBC) will invite international dignitaries to handout the awards. Also international celebrities will be challenged to accept a Honorary Ambassadorship for the cause of water. The objective of the event is to raise fund for the establishment of a Global Water Academy on Bonaire.

WATER FILM FESTIVAL

All these water issues are reasons enough to establish an annual Water Film Festival on Bonaire to showcase all kind of films related to water, from screenplays to documentaries and everything in between. At this festival the island can grant awards to the best films in various categories. Also see "festival".
