Raising awareness about the importance of water will be the main mission of the Bled Film Festival in 2015 as well. To this end, the festival seeks collaborations with other governmental and non-governmental, local and global organizations. In 2015 we continue discussing the importance of water, we raise public awareness, and at the same time we seek solutions that help solve the global water crisis. As part of the festival activities, we will perform three round tables, a water symposium (International Conference about water, co-organized by the IEDC Coca-Cola Chair of Sustainable Development), and the water cleanups across Slovenia, organized by the Slovenian Diving Association and supported by the BFF.
In 2015 we confirmed cooperation with Water.org. Water.org is a non-profit organization that has transformed more than two million lives across three continents by providing access to safe water and sanitation. Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon (world famous actor, screenwriter, producer and philanthropist), Water.org pioneers innovative solutions to help solve the global water crisis. Together with Water.org we raise awareness that the global water crisis is the biggest danger of our time.
We need to keep aware about it, and at the same time make more effort about better access to sanitation
