This course is part of our new Awareness Program with Children.
ABOUT THIS COURSE
This course is based on a clear vision: awareness and knowledge sharing on water footprint among school children. Our children being our future, and also the torch bearers for a sustainable world, we are responsible to bring about an awareness on sustainable living. This new and exciting course will cover key concepts on Water Footprint.
In our actions that accelerate climate change, water (United Nations Sustainable Development Goal -UNSDG #6) forms one of the core movers. The anthropogenic activities that impact the hydrological cycle and consume fresh water resources need to be curtailed. For doing so, water footprint is an essential tool. It is important to understand the water footprint of all our activities, products, establishments and lifestyle. This course is designed to initiate an understanding of water footprint for school children, in the most lucid and interesting way.
