POWERPROGRESSIVEART with Sabah Wetlands Conservation Society has realized an International Interdisciplinary Meeting. This meeting was an incentive for connecting and mutual presentation of the peoples and initiatives involved - organizations, associations, platforms, projects, etc. This meeting presented the in site case studies.

The old civilizations had developed, for the most part, in the valleys and the deltas of great rivers. The deltas supplied people with water and food, had enabled transportation, communication, and trade. Such development wasn't exclusive for big deltas only. Suitable areas such as these enabled the established civilizations to spread and fix their power in certain territories.

Due to the drainage of wetlands to obtain agricultural land, regulation of river flows, pollution of communal and industrial wastewaters, over-exploitation of their resources are only some of the human activities that have caused the disappearance and the degradation of wetland habitats. Thus, it is pertinent to raise awareness of the importance of natural and cultural heritage preservation, first in the local community, and the broader civil community as well. It is significant for mankind to cherish the nature that they come from.
