This workshop builds on the student’s knowledge of the hydrological cycle and the causes of global warming. Pupil’s learn:

    • why the UK is under water stress, and the effect on resource management and supply and demand security for water supply,
    • about the environmental implications of water and sewage treatment in the UK,
    • how sustainable drainage solutions and water efficiency strategies link into the UK’s environmental goals,
    • the link between hot water and increased CO2 emissions and how personal water choices impact on climate change,
    • the three P’s

Initially designed and delivered for Year 10 GCSE Geography students, it has also been adapted in a simpler form for Year 8 and Year 9 students. All pupils receive a shower timer.
