Water Explorer – a chance to make a difference!
Global Action Plan (GAP) the UK’s leading environmental behaviour change charity have launched an exciting new education project aimed at engaging school students to tackle water issues. The Water Explorer Project seeks to engage over 10,000 young people from across 11 different countries in a range of different projects. The programme is open to those aged between 8-14 in the UK, Ireland, Germany, France, Poland, Italy, Spain, South Africa, Turkey, Bermuda and Switzerland.
Students and teachers can go to this page to sign up http://www.waterexplorer.org/ and get more information on it here http://www.globalactionplan.org.uk/get-involved-with-water-explorer In addition, resources to help students and teachers kick-start their projects can be downloaded from here https://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/water-topic-year-5-6318653
This is a fun, engaging and ambitious project to help future generations better understand water issues
The projects are student led and help young people to understand how water affects lives, and to develop projects to tackle water issues including saving water, cleaner water, embedded water and access to water.
Those that take part and become global water ambassadors will develop life skills, such as presenting, critical thinking, project management and team working. As GAP programmes are supported by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) all participants will receive a UNEP certificate.
