The World Environment Day is aimed to promote awareness of the environment and give a human face to the environment threats, involving persons as gents of change towards sustainable development. In this context, the Permanent Mission of Mexico will screen a documentary itled “Between Fire and Water”, that deals with the question of water in Mexico City.

The documentary director, Mrs. Dominique de Courcelles, will be in the room, should you have any questions.
Description of the documentary: Since the beginning of the history of the world, the harmony of human
existence has depended on mankind's respect for the earth, water, air, and fire, the four fundamental elements of the planet.
With a population of more than 20 million inhabitants, Mexico City is today one of the largest cities in the world. Surrounded by active volcanoes and subject to frequent earthquakes, and with its drained lakes and channeled rivers, Mexico City finds itself precariously situated "between fire and water," subject to menacing seismic shifts, excessive stress on its water supply, floods, suffocation, multiple forms of violence--all this despite its many impressive accomplishments, which allow everything to continue functioning, more or less. Today water management is critical for maintaining life in Mexico City, as it is throughout the world. This film shows how sustainability in Mexico City has begun to develop, and how the most critical issue of water management can be handled in the future, thanks to a new awareness of the need to balance the four elements of the world.
