World Water Day

World Water Day has been celebrated around the world on 22 March since the United Nations designated the day in 1993.

The theme for World Water Day 2018 is Nature for Water – exploring how we can use nature to overcome the water challenges of the 21st century.

It’s a theme that has particular relevance to us at Watercare, because sustainability is at the heart of everything we do.

Our education coordinator Sally Smith has put together a fantastic education pack that explains many of the nature-based solutions we use to provide water and wastewater services in Auckland.

It’s full of interesting facts and has links to videos and games to help children learn about the water journey.

We also have extra sections to the education pack, with more ideas for water-themed classroom activities, that can be emailed to teachers on request.
