Educational institutions play a critical role in the sustainability of our society. Just like water is a necessity for each individual to simply live, teaching our youth how to live (and live sustainably), is of utmost importance. From history, we learn about the past and how to make progress in the future. Through science, we learn about the body and ways to improve our health. Through math, we get to appreciate the impact of numbers and the consequences that follow.
In many ways, we are also educators in a very niche and under-appreciated subject of water. We rely on it everyday, and a nation’s entire well-being can rely on their ability to obtain clean & pure water. Perhaps it’s time to start paying closer attention to what we’re drinking, and what we’re teaching our youth about healthy drinking habits.
