Climate Change and the Power of Poo with Dŵr Cymru
Our partners from Dŵr Cymru are teaming up with us for a session that aims to deepen students’ grasp of water’s pivotal role in combatting climate change.
This engaging session is split into two parts. To kick things off, Dŵr Cymru’s Seconded Teachers will lead a captivating virtual journey, walking students through the Waste Water Treatment Process.
They’ll cover everything, from waste arrival on-site to its transformation through Advanced Anaerobic Digestion. This session aligns with the National Curriculum for Wales, offering visual, interactive, and easily digestible content for students.
In the second half, students will be challenged to craft their own action plan geared towards fostering water efficiency in their schools and households. This plan will consider the energy consumed when the tap is turned on and the significant role water conservation plays in mitigating the impacts of climate change.
Small shifts in daily habits can potentially yield substantial positive changes. Join us in this transformative session and let’s make a difference, one drop at a time.
