The Nizhny Novgorod Pedagogical Institute has opened its Clean Water Exhibition. It presents the best works from the "Water: Save It!" competition, one of whose organizers and sponsors was the Nizhegorodskaya Hydropower Plant, a branch of JSC RusHydro.
The exhibition contains some 100 works from more than 30 cities and districts of Nizhny Novgorod Region, all featuring photographs and artwork on the theme of conserving water resources. The creators of the works are schoolchildren, students at institutes and universities, and instructors at higher educational institutions.
The awards ceremony for the competition winners was also held at the exhibition. On hand to award the prizes were Alexander Vainberg, Deputy Chairman of the Nizhny Novgorod Region Legislative Assembly; Yevgeny Dikov, Director of the Nizhegorodskaya Hydropower Plant; and representatives of the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Dront (Dodo) Ecological Centre - everyone who was involved in organizing the contest and exhibition.
"We should think and take care that our vitally important water resources are preserved for future generations. Today, ecologists, business, the government, and, we are glad to say, young people - schoolchildren and university students, on whom a great deal in our country will depend in a few more years - are coming together for just this purpose," said Director Dikov at the opening of the exhibition, and wished everyone success in the noble task of caring for the environment.
The Clean Water Exhibition will likely visit other higher educational institutions in Nizhny Novgorod and Nizhny Novgorod Region. It will then arrive in Zavolzhye in time for Water Day in March, to give the city's schoolchildren a chance to experience it.
