Conserving water is important!

Today is World Water Day. It is a day co-ordinated by UNESCO, as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater and this year it is dedicated to the theme of cooperation around water.

Water is of course, essential to human life and easy and equitable access to clean water greatly improves everyone's living conditions. We know that in the dry season, sometimes our reservoirs run almost dry and we have to ration water. Then you are only able to get water every other day or only for a few hours. That can make it hard to bathe and clean and cook every day and you don't get to water your plants. So we all recognise that conserving water is very important.You should try to make a difference in your home too!

We are a part of the great World Water Day project organised by Mr Graffin's class at West Leederville Primary School in Perth, Australia. Click on the picture above to visit it and leave a stickie to share how you feel about water co-operation and water conservation! And don't forget to check out 'Save it, share it!', our amazingly informative video (above) featuring the really fun song written by our own SJCPOS Young Leaders!
