UN Sustainable development Goal 6:
Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
Water is all around us: rivers, lakes, oceans, even puddles and raindrops. Yet despite the overwhelming amount of water on earth, very little of it is suitable for consumption. A person without access to improved drinking water is forced to rely on sources such as surface water, unprotected and possibly contaminated, and for many communities, water sources are usually far from home. It typically falls to women and girls to spend much of their time and energy fetching water, a task which often exposes them to attack from men and even wild animals.
But how difficult can it really be to get hold of potable water? This month, let’s learn about the water near where we live, why we use it, how we get it home and just how clean it really is.
The Fire Warriors this month will find out about who uses water, how much they use and what they use it for. You will interview people of different ages and different genders and find out about their water habits. You will write the questions, conduct and present your results in texts, pictures, graphs or tables. We look forward to hearing how you interpret your findings.
This task will involve conducting surveys, interviews, drawing graphs, gathering data and finding out about people’s opinions. Skills such as critical thinking, hypothesising and concluding will be practised in this task.
