Water Explorer Programme is an online fun, inspiring and educational programme that empowers schools and youth-groups across the world to lead joint action on water issues for their schools and communities. It aims to highlight the importance of water conservation on a global level. In South Africa the programme is implemented by WESSA.
Learners earn points as they complete a variety of water challenges and implement actions to manage their water more wisely. They have the opportunity to win appropriate prizes to assist them in achieving their water goals. As a further incentive every participating country selects their top five schools each year, of which one is selected as the national winner.
Water Explorer is an initiative of Global Action Plan UK and is supported by the HSBC Water Programme. Schools, enviro-clubs, cub or scouts groups can register for free at www.waterexplorer.org
