  • The number of schools that start using the program are shown in the graph. The goal is that each school in the towns near the river Guadalete are following the program by 2020. We have decided to start with Jerez de la Frontera, Arcos de la Frontera and Zahara because they are large towns and they are spread along the river.Each year a new town is added to the program. Each year in the towns that participate in the program the number of schools following the program is doubled (eg. Jerez de la Frontera: total 76 primary schools  2014 (year 1) 13 schools  2015 (year 2) 26 schools  2016 (year 3) 39 schools, etc.The program will start in 2014. In the mean time the teachers that are going to join the program next year will get training to be able to work with the program.
  • This table shows the activities that will be done during the program in the primary schools. With these activities we hope to make children aware of the river Guadalete and the natural values it has. The activities themselves will not change though the theme will (e.g. bicycle trip: may in one year be along the downstream of the river and next year upstream of the river). In the first year story books that already exist will be used, in 2015 we hope story books explicitly made for the program will be made. During this program we try to involve the parents of the children to also educate them. The schedule for the first year of the primary schools is shown in two slide from now.
  • This table shows the activities that will be done during the program in the secondary schools. With these activities we hope to make students aware of the river Guadalete and the natural values it has. The activities themselves will not change though the theme will (e.g. laboratory work: may in one year be about water quality and the next year about ecology). One of the activities is that students from the secondary school work as volunteers at local foundations to gain experience about nature values.In this program students from the Cádiz university will help to perform the tasks in the program (e.g. help with laboratory work). The schedule for the first year of the secondary schools is shown in the next slide.
  • The graph in this slide shows the planning for both primary and secondary schools in the first year of the program (2014-2015).For each month a maximum of three hours is given to perform the activities of that month, the distribution of the hours throughout the month can be decided by each school by themselves.During classes such as biology, chemistry and history the teacher talks about the Guadalete River and aspects of that river in relation to the subject taught.To pay for this project we need financial support from sponsors. Possible sponsors could be ‘Ecologistas en acción’ and possibly others. We hope that after the (success) of the first year of the program that potential sponsors will come by themselves to sponsor this initiative for future years. We tried to keep the costs of the project as low as possible by employing the help of students of Cádiz university and volunteers.
  • These are the other objectives made for the awareness theme. We chose child education because if we can make the child aware of the natural values the Guadalete river basin holds, we can secure the future of the river.
  • There are three main aspects regarding to improve sewage infrastructure in JerezBudget To improve source so that there will be less water goes into the sewage systemTo increase the storage of volume of sewage system by improve the main infrastructure so that even if there is a overflow the sewage system can still handle that
  • Two resources of budgetCharge extra tax from heavy industry or companies who produce large amount of wastewater or worse wastewater; also extra tax for tourism related facilities like hotels or golf clubs which consumed lots of waterSegment the price of water with different range of amount.
  • Infiltration and vegetated systems can be spread all over the city, so the percentage of impermeable area would decrease.
  • Underground Infiltration System to absorb rainwater so that the volume of rainwater which goes into the sewage will decrease.It can also filtrate the water a little bit before the overflow goes into the sewage.
  • The oversized pipes can delay and decrease the peak of a heavy rainfall. The pipes should be easy accessible because they need more maintenance than other normal pipes.
  • If overflow (rainfall), water will stay in the retention reservoir, so the sediment will settle in retention reservoir and if water start to overflow to the surface water from retention reservoir, only the upper clean part will flow to the surface water
  • This is a picture of WatersquareBethemsquare in Rotterdam.This square can be used in multiple ways, besides collecting rainwater, it’s possible to sport, skate and dance in one of the three basins.
  • Final presentation group 3

    1. 1. Planning the Future Group 3
    2. 2.  Vision  Mission  Objectives  Scenario  Global Timeline  Measures • Sustainable Development • Good Management • Awareness • Good Water Quality
    3. 3. A place where human and nature can meet while respecting each other and their needs in a dynamic equilibrium Creating a river basin by 2030 with a good water quality, sustainable industries, rising awareness, good management, and high quality of living. Because by improving nature, living standards will be improved as well. A balanced system is self-sustainable.
    4. 4.  Sustainable Development • Develop the area ecologically and economically • Awareness • Make the general public aware of the Guadalete river basin and the values that it has with the use of a campaign  Good Management • Improve the management of the area in terms of risk, control of corruption, cooperation and areal plan  Good Water Quality • Increase the water quality of the Guadalete River taking account of different aspects as improvement of the existing infrastructure, constructions of new system and monitoring as well as controlling the river and its basin
    5. 5.  People and nature live in balance  Small cities  Young Population  Good infrastructures (drinking and waste water, garbage…)  Areal development plan with protected areas  Modern WWTPs  Natural treatment processes  Re-use and recycling  Renewable energies  Good condition of the river  Partecipation  Education  Cooperation  Communication  Awareness  Protection  Local Government Good Practices  Local Taxes for Development  Sustainable Industries  Sustainable Agricolture  Sustainable Tourism and Ecoturism  Biodiversity  Recreational Activities
    6. 6.  Sustainable Development • By promoting sustainable ecoturism, sustainable agricolture, use of renewable energies and ecological waste management  Awareness • As part of the campaign the children will be made aware of the natural values the Guadalete River by having them follow a special program in their schools.  Good Management • Risk&Emergency Management Plan • Spatial Development Plan • Cooperation Stakeholders, Region and Countries • Anti-Corruption Plan  Good Water Quality • Improve WWTP’s already existing and building new WWTP’s • Improve water infrastructures before WWTP as the sewage system of Jerez • Natural water treatment • Increase natural river biodiversity • Monitoring & Control maintenance, promote data, gathering and research • Control source of pollution
    7. 7.  Measures ◦ Renewable energy (tidal/sun/wind/hydro) ◦ Sustainable agriculture ◦ Taxation (tourism, water) ◦ Clean energy transport ◦ Recycling (Re-use / Reduce) ◦ Local products (slow food)  Detailed measure ◦ Sustainable Ecotourism
    8. 8.  Develop ecotourism Grazalema natural park & upstream part of the Guadalete river  Utilizing resources that already exist in the area (accommodation, services, hiking trails)  Connecting and coordinating areas of interest  Hiking, Pueblos Blancas, river basin

    17. 17.  Starting Costs • Still unknown but have to be spent by local/national administrations  Maintenance and Management Costs • In order to develop an economically self-sustained plan, these money can be found thanks to the plan results
    18. 18.  Direct Result • Corruption increses the costs of tender assignment • Decreasing corruption means clear tender assignment subjected only to free market laws and national/european regulamentations • Costs of tender assignment will higly decrease and local administrations will have more money available to reinvest in the project or to allocate in other measures
    19. 19.  Indirect Result • To find money for bribes companies need to falsify their balance sheet hiding part of their taxable profit • Fighting corruption means that companies profit will be clearly declared and then taxed • As example:
