You can reach a wide public with an information booth. Talk to people, answer their questions, provide them with information and discuss issues concerning water. An information booth also draws peoples´attention who are just passing even without coming up to your booth.
Suggestions on how to catch the attention of as many people as possible:
Presentation: The booth has to be visually attractive, e.g. put up big posters, balloons or a tombola wheel.
Support: Also try talking to people who do not come up to your booth – always be friendly, never be obtrusive. Since it is very hard to act attentively for a long period of time, you should take regular turns at working. The people participating in this action have to be well informed and need to be able to answer even critical questions in a friendly way.
Information material: Only display a few free brochures and books on the table. Store the rest underneath. Clearly and visibly write down links to web sites with further information.
Place: Go for a central, frequented place, e.g. a shopping mall. It might be necessary to obtain permission by the local authorities. Other good opportunities for putting up an information booth are local festivals, markets or exhibitions.
Organise spectators: A crowd attracts other people. Invite friends to come by your booth.
Uniform appearance: In order to define who belongs to the booth and may be asked for information, you should dress uniformly. The easiest solution is to wear blue clothes. However, it is also possible to print t-shirts with a message about water or to create badges which state your name and that you will answer questions.
