National Water Week 2022

East Gippsland Water

Every year in the third week of October, National Water Week makes a splash across Australia inspiring individuals, schools and communities to work together to build awareness around our most precious resource.

Access to clean water is immensely important to our daily lives and it’s down to all of us to protect our water environments and resources, and to use water wisely.

This year’s National Water Week theme was developed from the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development. This a call for action targeted at all countries and young people across the world, to unite to achieve 17 sustainable development goals by 2030. You can find out more about the Global Goals here.

The theme this year is…

Our water stories!

National Water Week Poster Competition!

Our National Water Week Poster Competition is on again! – providing a great opportunity for primary school students to put their artistic creativity to the test and learn more about the importance of water and using water efficiently at the same time.

Students are encouraged to create A3 posters reflecting water-related issues that are important to them, or how they use water in their daily lives and to connect this with the theme “Our water stories” and East Gippsland Water.

The closing date for entries is 4pm Friday 2nd September, with winners to be presented with their prizes during National Water Week.

Posters can be posted to PO Box 52 Bairnsdale, or dropped off at our head office at 133 Macleod Street, Bairnsdale.
