Project WET: Water Education Today is dedicated to solving critical environmental challenges by teaching the world about water. We do this by providing hands-on, science-based water education resources to formal and non-formal educators around the world. These resources encourage responsible environmental stewardship and promote meaningful action to address environmental challenges, climate change, social justice, and sustainability.
Water Literacy & Our Methodology
We believe that creating a water literate society will allow our communities to value precious resources and make informed decisions. Our conceptual framework of Water Literacy Principles is the foundational element of our water education curriculum and serves as the basis to creating a water literate society. Learn more about how our methodology creates materials that are hands-on, interactive and encourage critical thinking on water and science topics.
Celebrate the Clean Water Act
As leaders in water education, we are proud to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Clean Water Act. To commemorate this anniversary, Project WET is offering a variety of resources to help educators teach about maintaining clean water.
Project WET has been researching, writing and publishing water education materials since 1984. The result is the most comprehensive collection of award-winning water education books, guides, maps, posters and downloadable resources you'll find anywhere. Our water education publications cover topics such as climate change, watersheds, groundwater, water quality, water conservation, wetlands, waters of your state, WASH (water and sanitation), stormwater, water in cities, pollution prevention, and many more.
