Presentation

Watch the video below to help you reflect on the importance of water protection.

At first glance, water may seem to be abundant and inexpensive. With a small gesture we can turn on a tap to drink water or use it for cooking and washing, etc. It is so easy to access water that we could think that it is an inexhaustible resource.

However, water is becoming increasingly scarce. In some African countries, for example, the population lives on less than 15 litres of water a day. For many people, a shower is a privilege.

Moreover, in Europe, it is increasingly difficult to access water. Pollution and overuse threaten our water in reservoirs, rivers and underground reserves.

In this sequence you will learn about the threats to water resources, calculate your daily water consumption and make a digital poster with tips to reduce household consumption.
