#CleanWater #WorldWaterDay

No factor is so crucial to life, health and human development as water. We all know this, but to commemorate the World Water Day, we’d like to get a reflection from all, young and old.


… Although our planet is covered with water, only 3% of it is fresh water?

… The water you drink today might be the same that one day rained in the Amazon or was in Napoleon´s cup?
… To produce a single cotton T-shirt 713 gallons (2,700 liters) of water are being used?
… in many parts of Africa and Asia girls have to walk an average of 3.7 miles (6 km) to get water instead of going to school?
In our hands we have the education of our children, we should make them aware that we live in a shared world, and that what we do here today impacts in an unexpected way elsewhere.
Teaching them how the water cycle works or what the evaporation is, is as important as educating them in solidarity, responsibility and sensibility; cross-educational values that have presence in all our contents.
