Climate Change: Water and the Power of Poo

A Dŵr Cymru and Keep Wales Tidy collaborative primary school pupil event to mark COP 26.  The session will consider some of the ways that we can all, current and future generations, respond to the climate change challenge.

To mark COP26, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water and Keep Wales Tidy are working in collaboration to deliver a virtual session to primary schools in Wales. At such a crucial moment in time, it will allow pupils of future generations – those most affected by the decisions of today, to build their knowledge of the role that water can play in tackling the issue.

The session will be split into two.  After setting the scene, Dŵr Cymru Seconded Teachers will take pupils on a live virtual journey, describing the Waste Water Treatment Process, from the point that waste arrives on site through to its’ treatment through Advanced Anaerobic Digestion. The session will be aligned to the National Curriculum for Wales, visual, interactive – and easy to understand for pupils.

In the second part, both organisations will pose a challenge to pupils to develop their own action plan to help their schools and households to become more water efficient.  Taking into account the energy used as the tap is turned on and the role that water consumption can play in mitigating climate change impacts; small changes in habits can potentially make a big difference.

This session will provide food for thought for pupils, encourage a few conversations over the dinner-table at home, and give adults and children alike a cause for pause as they turn on the tap.
