Build Activities for Water Conservation bootcamp

Hi Everyone,

In the face of exacerbating climate change impact on water & sanitation, we are launching a water conservation bootcamp for high school children, as an adaptation technique.

We would appreciate your inputs on the activities that will impart life-long water conservation skills in youths. We are also open to partnerships. If interested, kindly reach out to me.

Thank you!

Re: Build Activities for Water Conservation bootcamp

Dear Temple,

Please clarify who is "we" in your post and where you are located? What activities do you have in mind for your bootcamp? Are we talking about children from low income settings (who probably have a very low daily water usage already; probably don't even have toilets at home) or are we talking childrem from high income settings (whose water consumption is likely higher and would leave room for water conservation activities)?
Please also add some information to your forum profile so that we know who is writing. Thanks.

Regards,
Elisabeth

Re: Build Activities for Water Conservation bootcamp

Thank you Muench for the feedback.

By "we", I meant Hope Spring Water Charity Foundation ( www.hopespring.org.uk )

Regarding the status of children to be engaged, low-income and high-income are considered, mainly because both 'classes' need to be equipped with water conservation skills. Using water wisely is a critical skill needed in both 'water-rich' and water-scarce settings.

Thank you!
