Did you know that by 2025, two-thirds of the world’s population is projected to face water scarcity? At Project WET, we’re seeking to reach the world with water education that promotes action and awareness around water issues. We do that by delivering the world’s best water education resources, organizing unique water events, managing a worldwide network of implementing partners and advocating for the role of water education in solving the world’s most pressing water issues.
However, we can’t achieve our mission alone. With the global community on our side, we can solve these worldwide problems and create a more educated society. There are many ways to get involved: You can teach, learn and play to aid in water education!
1. Attend a Workshop
Project WET workshops are held all over the world through our network of U.S. and international partners. Most of the workshops are designed to help you learn how to teach all kinds of audiences about water. You don’t need to be a classroom teacher—Project WET educators come from all kinds of backgrounds and include not only formal educators but also others interested in increasing knowledge about water. Attending a workshop is a great way to kickstart your own water education and to learn more about our organization! Contact the Project WET Coordinator in your area to find out about workshop opportunities in person and online.
2. Host a Water Festival
Make a Splash with Project WET water festivals promote awareness and education about water resources, and are often hosted for children at schools, community centers or retail locations. Though focusing on water science principles, our festivals also promote multidisciplinary approaches to learning by integrating social studies, geography, math, language arts, art and journaling. You can host your own water festival with the help of our free water festival guide. Share your event with others through a social sharing tool for nonprofits! Some Coordinators also hold water festivals. Contact them for more information.
3. Make a Donation
Donations of any size are always greatly appreciated and ensure that we can continue to reach new people with high-quality water resources education. We hope that you will consider a contribution to the future of water, knowing that it can help us educate people of all ages to make responsible decisions about water use.
4. Bring Water into Your Classroom
