At the Hungarian Grand Prix, Jordan's Message from Bahrain is one of environmental preservation. The Hungarian government has been working to preserve Lake Balaton, one of Hungary's natural treasures and a unique ecological asset of the Central European region.

With a surface area of 594 km square, the lake is the largest freshwater body in Central Europe however it has been losing volume at an alarming rate due to the effects of rising surface temperatures, attributed to global warming, on its extremely shallow average depth of 3.2m.

Continued efforts in environmental protection and nature conservation have preserved a rich diversity of flora and fauna species and although the area is a highly-frequented international tourist destination, the Hungarian government has founded a preservation area - the Lake Balaton Highlands National Park - which helps to balance the demands of agriculture, tourism and ecological sustainability.

Jordan and Bahrain are supporting this local 'Stop Global Warming' initiative as part of the worldwide essage from Bahrain' series with the motif of a flaming globe, an international symbol used to highlight ecological damage caused by global warming and its effects.
