National Water Week 2020

National Water Week 2020

National Water Week is a week that aims to inspire individuals, communities and organisations to think about water!  Access to clean water is hugely important to our daily lives, and it’s down to all of us to protect our water environments and resources, and use water wisely. 

This year, National Water Week runs from 19-25 October, with the theme “Reimagining our Water Future“.

The theme has been developed from the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development, which is a campaign to introduce 17 sustainable development goals to young people all over the world and unite them to take action to meet the goals by 2030.  You can find out more about the Global Goals here.

2020 Primary School Poster Competition

Primary School students across the region are encouraged to create an A3 poster which reflects water-related issues that are important to them or reflect how they use water in their daily lives.

Think about how you access water, what we do with it, the value we place on it, how population growth and climate change affect water supply’s, the role water plays in our community, our country and the world. If students are able to connect this with East Gippsland Water and the work we are doing to ensure long term security of the region’s water supply or sanitation practices across the region that’s even better. 

All primary schools have been sent entry packs for this years competition and we are looking forward to receiving the entries. The closing date for entries this year will be 4pm on 4th September.
