Dear reader, I am sure you have heard the phrase “Madrid water is delicious” in the street or said by some friend. Why? Most likely, because it is.
World Water Day is celebrated on March 22nd every year to spread the importance of sweet water and its environmental functions, as well as its benefits to the ecosystem and socioeconomic significance. This day was proposed during the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro.
In 2023 this celebration coincides with the beginning of the UN 2023 Water Conference, between March 22nd and 24th in New York. This conference will be a unique chance to find solutions for the current water crisis and sanitation.
“Libros de las Malas Compañías” wishes to contribute to this day by introducing our new book. This fantastic story takes the reader to a world they never imagined. There was once a time when Madrid had a beach. And just like those living in seaside areas, people all over Madrid went out daily to enjoy their great waters. This doesn’t take us a few years back, but centuries. It transports us through history to the moment when there were no cities but an aquatic world full of creatures long gone. Did you already know this story? Do you still remember it? If you want to learn more about Madrid Marino, we are having a presentation for it this Wednesday (March 22nd) at 6.30 pm at the History Museum of Madrid, and you are all invited.
