A round table named "Almendares River S.O.S - 10 Years Later" will take place September 26-28 in the Cuban capital, announced local sources on Sunday.

According to officials of the Antonio Nunez Jimenez Foundation for Nature and Man and those of the Havana's Great Metropolitan Park, sponsoring the initiative, the meeting will be attended by experts and investigators from more than 20 Cuban institutions.

They will help to define a strategy to continue with cleaning up tasks in the Almendares-Vento Basin and will pay homage to the deceased personages Jesus Montane Oropesa and Antonio Nunez Jimenez, promoters of the rehabilitation of the mentioned institutions.

The analysis of actions carried out over the last 10 years regarding the recovery of natural water fountains through the use of technologies for the treatment of residual waters and the reforestation of the hydro-regulating strip will be starting points for the debate.

Besides, participants will examine matters related to environmental education, the need for mass participation as well as experiences and challenges in environmental cleaning.
