In the framework of CB WR-MED International Conference for Sustainable Water Management, held in Tunis on 25-26 april 2013, an interactive art installation was organized by CERTE (Tunisia) to disseminate concepts related to water and sustainability.
This is an interesting example of using graphic art for spurring messages from science to large public.
In 2002, Mae Jemison, a doctor, dancer, and the first African American woman in space, said:
