Thank you for adding me a s a friend. I would like to share with you the plans that we have to create a worldwide dialogue about major river delta's and climate change. I have written to Ibrahim Muhammad, the Director of the Center for Mass Education in Sciences (CMES) in Dhaka to find the right partners in that Region. but he never responds to any message. See my mail hereafter. Any suggestion?
Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to you today because ASTC is going to partner with a number of organizations to participate in the different actions and discussions about the impact of climate change on the delta’s of the main streams of the planet. (See attached document).
As ASTC through IGLO ( or more largely as the representatives of the science center movement we are extremely interested in creating dialogues between different audiences in all parts of the world based on common interest in exploring the science that explains to problems as well as potential solutions. We are envisaging to propose a common citizens’ science project that would imply interactions between students in your delta’s (Amazon, Nile and Ganges).
Our first plan is to make sure that the representatives of your government will be able to join a preparatory meeting on 5th of November in Washington DC at the Embassy of The Netherlands. If you wish to participate with us, make sure that your embassy is aware and will be attending that meeting knowing about your agreement to join the ASTC dialogue part of this initiative.
Secondly, if you are interested in joining, we would like to set up a conference call between Brazil, Egypt, Bangladesh and ASTC to see what a common project would look like.
Not only do I think this is the right thing to do, but the dialogue between the youngsters living on these world famous waterways is extremely symbolic and will allow large visibility in the world press and create an additional interest for all of us.

Please let me know if you are interested and I will continue to do the necessary steps to make this possible.

Bet regards,

Walter Staveloz
