The highlight of the evening will be the first public performance of specially commissioned work: “Amwaj – Water Symphony”, composed by the Conductor Vartan Melkonian, in honour of the 'Our Water, Our Life’ initiative; this is will be the first time a serious classical work is performed since Handel’s famous “Water Music” in 1717.

Ticket proceeds from the two events will fund a 6-month water awareness campaign featuring the winning plan from our GCC-wide university student competition. The student competition aims to find the most innovative idea to promote water conservation in the GCC by engaging the vibrant minds of the Arab youth in the region. The top three initiatives will be announced at The 16th Annual GCC Polo Cup on the 20th June, 2012. Finally, the first place winning idea will be implemented for 6 months across the GCC from July to December 2012—with credits to the winning student and his or her university.
At BMG Foundation, we are dedicated to fostering social, humanitarian and environmental programs by organizing nationalistic and high profile events. A decade ago, we started bringing together high-profile business and social leaders from the East and West with a shared noble intent. Over the last decade and through various charitable events—from the annual GCC Polo Cup to our Art Alive initiative, and from the BMG Foundation Favourite Classics concert series to the “Our Water, Our Life” initiative—we have raised funds not only to benefit various causes but also to raise cultural appreciation in the region.

Are you aware of the water crisis in the region?

Do you make any conscious effort to conserve water?

Water is not disappearing. Our drinking water is.
The amount of water on earth today is the same as it ever was, but 97% is undrinkable salty water. Only 0.007% of the remaining fresh-water is readily accessible for human use, the equivalent of one tablespoon in a gallon bucket of water.
The Arab world population will double in 2030. Water supply will not.
In 2030, less than twenty years from now, the average annual availability in Arab countries will drop from 1,200 cubic meters per person per year to only 500 cubic meters. The current global average is 7000 cubic meters.
One-third of Egyptian women walk more than an hour every day for water. In other parts of Africa, this can be as much as eight hours.
Women and girls in Sub-Saharan Africa alone walk 40 billion hours every year to collect water to survive. That’s even more than a year’s work for the whole labor force in all Arab states of the Gulf – estimated at 17 million people working 45 hours a week for an entire year.
It takes 35 liters of water to make one cup of tea.
The water footprint of one cup of tea is the amount of water needed in the entire process of growing and producing 3.5 grams of tea enough for one cup. More shockingly, the average water footprint of one hamburger with 150 grams of beef is a whopping 2400 liters of water!
Saudis are the 3rd biggest consumers of water on the planet.
Even though a person only requires 48 liters of water on a daily basis, individuals in the United States use an average of 500 liters, in Canada an average of 300 liters and in Saudi an average of 250 liters.
The poor pay more and get less water.
The poor often live in unregulated housing that is not serviced by a water utility. They have to buy water delivered through sellers and water trucks that usually costs 10–20 times more than utility water.
37.7 million Arabs are deprived from clean water.
Yes, we are severely affected by the water crisis. More than one in every ten people in Arab countries are at least 1km far from the nearest safe water source.
More people in the world have mobile phones than access to a toilet.
A staggering 40% of the world population have no access to adequate water sanitation and have to defecate in ditches, plastic bags or road sides. Yet, 72.6% of people in the world own a mobile phone.
One million liters of water is used every day to maintain the lush appearance of the Tiger Woods Golf Course in the desert of Dubai.
4,900 children die every day from diarrhea.
These deaths are caused by this preventable water-related disease caused by unclean water and poor sanitation. Diarrhea kills more children under 5 than the equivalent child population of New York and London combined.

Hello.

I am a bottle of water from 2050.

I am pretty empty as you can see and things have not been good for your children.


There’s not much water left on earth. Each one is allowed only one cup of water a day.

No one goes out in the sun in order not to perspire much. Instead of bathing, people use dry minerals. With no water to wash their hair, they cut it all. They wear synthetic clothes and eat synthetic food. They look dry and old. They hear about your ways with water and wish you cared.

If you are reading this, then you can still change the future.

Keep going up until you reach the top, you will be filling me up on water as you go through the journey.

Yours,

Bottle of Water from 2050
