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 Air Warriors this month will learn about water habits in developed nations and the water treatment process – just how complex can it be to make water fit for human consumption? Some students will write a quiz about water habits and others will write a quiz about the water treatment process. Let’s learn together!
This task will often be formed around projects and work created or data gathered by wonderful Environmental Organisations and NGOs such as the WWF, IUCN and Practical Action. Teachers can use the material to develop interdisciplinary projects within their schools.
