The village of Layou’s launched its annual titiwi fest earlier today as part of world river’s day celebrations
With many of the world’s rivers in a degraded state and facing increasing pressures associated with pollution, industrial development, and climate change, more than 100 countries will participate in this year’s activities.
World River’s Day 2022 is celebrated under the theme “waterways in our communities” with an emphasis on both protecting rivers that remain in a healthy state, while striving to restore those that have been damaged in past.
Parliamentary Representative for the St. Joseph constituency Dr. Adis King says as an island with over three hundred rivers Dominica can relate to this theme as the island recognizes the importance of this resource.
She encouraged the rest of the island to come down to layout this weekend to support the festival and join in on the activities.
