Nilüfer Creek On Path Of Water


Not so much time ago, our country, which was a water rich country with 4,000 M3 per capita until 20 years ago, has lost 65% of its resources and the average amount of usable water has dropped to 1500 M3. The more serious one; According to the predictions of scientists this amount will fall down below 1,000 M3 by 2035 and will become a country poor of water. 74% of our water resources are consumed in agriculture, 11% in industry and 15% in domestic use. In addition to the rapid decrease in our resources; superficial irrigation, population growth, pollution and unconscious use, which causes a lot of waste of water in agriculture, will make our access to water more difficult in the near future and increase its vital importance.

In this fest organized by “Gruop us” with the theme "Air, water, soil.. Getting back to nature"; We wanted to accompany the adventure of Nilüfer Stream, which is the only and most important river of Bursa, to the Karacabey Strait where it was born from the southern skirts of Uludağ and poured into the sea. We wish a world that is abundant in water and can be shared fairly.
