The purpose of this class is for teachers to encourage the school to become pro active in the quest for the community to conserve the planet’s water resources.
You will notice that you are not given specific activities or even a direction to follow. Our purpose is to give you resources and time and leave the designing of the program entirely up to you and your school or district. The needs of every school and community will be different. We hope that you will look for ways to engage not only your students and staff but their families, friends and neighbors.
Community can be defined as any part of society outside of the school environment
The participant will actively help direct the school it participating in the following:
1. Community awareness programs about the need to start conserving water.
2. Promoting community programs of action whereby water is conserved.
3. Communicating the results of successful community programs that the school helped promote regarding water conservation.
