Climate Change: Water and the Power of Poo

11/11/2022 @ 09:30 - 11:50


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

After a successful virtual session to mark COP26 in November of last year, lots of schools have been in touch to ask whether the collaborative session, between Dwr Cymru Welsh Water and Keep Wales Tidy, will be repeated. And that is exactly what we intend to do!

At such a crucial moment in time, the session 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.

Note: This is a repeat of a previous session, run initially in November of 2021

9.30-10.15 Friday 11 November– English

11.05-11.50 Friday 11 November – Welsh

The event will be run through Microsoft Teams.
