We are now looking for more Water Explorers to continue the challenge and fill our future with water for all. Hear directly from children and their teacher about their fun-filled, educational experience of Water Explorer in this short video.
So far over 99,000 Water Explorers doing a challenge have made a real splash and saved an astounding 1.7 million m3 of water, 1.5 million Kg of CO2 and held 150 Water festivals world-wide.
Their approach has been creative and individual. Birches school in South Africa created inventive water banks andinspiring rap songs from Oakdale Primary School in England encouraged others to make every drop count. The Wyebank Water Warriors from South Africa were even awarded the internationally acclaimed WAF Youth Award.
