“While substantial progress has been made in increasing access to clean drinking water and sanitation, billions of people—mostly in rural areas—still lack these basic services. Worldwide, one in three people do not have access to safe drinking water, two out of five people do not have a basic hand-washing facility with soap and water, and more than 673 million people still practice open defecation. For hundreds of millions of people, especially women and girls, not having access to clean water close to home means long, dangerous and physically painful walks to collect water from sources that could be filthy.
The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the critical importance of sanitation, hygiene and adequate access to clean water for preventing and containing diseases. Hand hygiene saves lives. According to the World Health Organization, hand-washing is one of the most effective actions you can take to reduce the spread of pathogens and prevent infections, including the COVID-19 virus. Yet billions of people still lack safe water sanitation, and funding is inadequate.”
The Water Warriors are specialists in water and this month they will decide what they want to learn more about: What is water? Where is water found? Why do we need water? Do other species need water too? You will choose your own project focus, investigate where/how to find information and finally decide how to present your findings.
This task requires much more autonomy, critical thinking and creativity. It is a project that the learners decide how to approach and how to present their findings.
