Submitted by Live & Learn on Thu, 13/02/2020 - 09:17

Live & Learn has published a practical toolkit for schools to teach children about the importance of safe drinking water, and to make connections between protecting the environment, protecting water catchments, water availability, safe water storage and adaptations to mitigate the impact of climate change on school water supply.

The toolkit contains three modules:

  1. Where does our drinking water come from?
  2. Looking after our water catchment
  3. Keeping our drinking water clean

Each module contains practical activities for students to complete, with learning through experience and guidance to take actions to solve problems they may discover.

The toolkit is available in the Resources section of our website, or you can download it directly from the link below:

The toolkit was written by Live & Learn through the Resilient WASH in the Islands Region and Autonomous Region of Bougainville project in Papua New Guinea, supported by the Australian government and implemented by Plan International Australia and Live & Learn Environmental Education.
