The Second International Conference on Water and Trans-disciplinarity at the National Museum of Brasilia on January 11 and 12, 2018

The participants of the Second International Conference on Water and Trans-disciplinarity, which was organized by a group of leaders from civil society, governments, institutions and universities, signed the Waters for Peace Charter as a contribution towards strengthening a transdisciplinary approach to water, recognizing it as a Being in its subjective and objective aspects, and its relevance to the expansion of consciousness and to building a culture of peace.

Henk van Schaik, Water Partner, provided a presentation on the subject of Peace and Cultural Heritage, emphasizing that water is a basic element of life and that our relationship with water is complex, entailing material and spiritual dimensions, embodied in heritage that is both tangible and intangible. He argued that this relationship has always been an inspiration leading us to think not only of the present, but also of the future and the security of future generations.
