They ran together for clean water
Athletes and famous names accompanied the short runs by Amputee national football player and paralympic athlete Burak Abacıoğlu. In each run, awareness talks were held on a purpose of Sustainable Development.
“LACK OF WATER ON A GLOBAL SCALE CAN BE EXPERIENCED”
Asst. Prof. Dr. Nevruz Berna Tatlısu from Istanbul Gelisim University said: “If the sustainable development goals are not taken into account, there will be a global water scarcity and access to clean water will be very difficult. Safe drinking water, the extent of defecation in open spaces, water quality, waste water management, increasing efficiency in water use, increasing water and sanitation support to underdeveloped and developing countries, and raising awareness of local people should be supported.
Speaking about the run, amputee national football player and paralympic athlete Burak Abacıoğlu said:
