"Cultivando Agua Boa" is a social-environmental program of Itaipu Binacional, made to find solutions to social and environmental problems in the municipalities that make up the Paraná Watershed. This program looks to establish criteria and conditions in order to guide social-environmental actions related with natural resource conservation, water quality and quantity, and the people’s quality of living. This is a movement of permanent participation where, apart from mitigating and correcting environmental impact, it works with society to change values regarding how to be/feel, live, produce and consume.
