Making a splash on World Water Day
Posted by Skeyi primary, South Africa on 21 March 2018

Whilst Cape Town is in the grip of a terrible drought, KwaZulu Natal has been fortunate to receive some good rain this year. After 3 years of drought our dams are finally filling!! Haray!! Today, Julia for the Water Explorer program came to talk our eco-club about the importance of protecting our water for the future. She reminded us that whilst people is the Western Cape need to tighten their water budgets, if we are going to have water for the future, citizens of KZN also need to get water smart and start living well within our water budget. Only 1 % of the world water is fresh and available for us to drink, and our fresh water resources are rapidly being depleted with pollution and overuse. For the build up towards World Water Day on the 22nd March, we decided to put our hands together and do something positive for our blue planet. The first started by doing a water audit of the entire school, we made water saving pledges for the water walkway challenges
