By Ahmet Abdulaziz …..

In order to emphasise the importance of water in our lives and in the world, the European University of Lefke organised an exhibition in connection with the World Water Day on 22nd March 2019.

Giving information about the exhibition, Academician of Communication Sciences Faculty Assist. Prof. Dr. Derin Işıkören said that 22nd March World Water Day is celebrated worldwide with awareness raising and informative activities. Işıkören said that considering the fact that underground and surface water resources are rapidly polluting and decreasing, these events are very important in terms of explaining the problem to the younger generation. Işıkören also said that “Our University has been participating in this series of events for the last three years to raise awareness through visual communication”.

Pointing out that many topics are better understood as a visual message because of the media environment in which the young generation grow, Işıkören said “For this reason, we offer a series of banners to the attention of the viewers, emphasizing the importance of water and drought as of 2019 World Water Day. The studies were carried out by 2nd and 3rd grade students in Visual Communication Design and Graphic Design. We congratulate them for their research and efforts”.
