National Water Week

East Gippsland Water

This year National Water Week will run from 18-22 October, with the poster theme “Caring for water in our backyard“.

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.

2021 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 10 September.
