Our message behind this drawing is a metaphor. Water is represented by a chained woman , condemned by our selfishness and our greed. Water is losing its value because of us and our ignorance. Our water is precious, and so is our earth. When the last drop falls, will we still be able to save it? Let's stop being selfish and start conserving our planet's most valuable resource.

Water sustains life, so without water life would not exist on Earth. The drawing wants to capture the importance of water, in every corner of the world, which is the most precious and valuable resource for the life of plants, animals and people. Water resources are under pressure in many parts of the world, and the situation continues to worsen. The water deficit has serious consequences both on everything that means life, but also indirectly on agriculture, industry: low river water flows, low lake levels, the disappearance of wetlands.

We must help it save life – to have clean water in it. In my drawing I drew a girl who supposedly came from the past, when nature rolled over man and everything was pure, so that she could a help us, people, understand that something needs to be done urgently. May our wise minds come up with a solution for the future, how to protect our rare, extinct birds and animals, because they cannot live in dirty oil and plastic contaminated water. My girl has a sail made of solar panels so that nature is not polluted. The girl is facing a fight with people in whose minds only money is ruling everything. The girl stands up for the nature. I want my penguins to have enough ice, because pollution can make it disappear. Doesn’t that where are you? Walking along the sea, are you up and take a big bag in together with my mother I collect rubbish by the sea. But there is so much of it. Help! Let’s protect our greatest treasure – water – together!

Water is vital

Danube Water-Adventure, Engelhartszell. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ST. AEGIDI, 2ND CLASS.

In our work, we have thought about importance of clean water for all people and for the future. The heavy pollution also means that water resources are becoming less and less. Moreover, these are distributed unfairly, even though all people in the world Are entitled to clean water. Why the rich countries’ population is thoughtless and wasteful about water, people in poorer countries often do not have access to clean drinking water or wells. It should therefore be our concern offered to maintain a clean, plastic-free environment from environment for all.

Together we are stronger

A drop of water is the start of a journey. That tiny drop will travel, see the world, and live a thousand adventures. The children have each drawn in a drop of water, using watercolour paints to bring life to their art. Each child illustrated a message or slogan about ‘The Water We Want’. Some choose to raise awareness about water conservation, others about keeping water clean and finally about how they dream water to be for tomorrow. We photographed their work and created a collage, to show that together we are stronger and together we have hope.

The earth does not only belong to humans, its for all beings around us.

Save water

LIVING WATERS MUSEUM, INDIA. Holy Redeemers Hr Secondary Girls High School, Palakarai, Trichi. S Priyadharshini.

We need trees, plants, birds, insects, fishes and everything needs water to live. Nowadays, we get to use water from a tap in our house, and not so much from lakes and wells. And now there is a shortage of water everywhere. In my village, we have a bore well for one farm. But the well had to be dug very deep to get water, because there is less water in the ground. So we must be careful with using water for almost everything, we use it for drinking, cooking, cleaning, washing and in the toilet. We use a lot of water instead of using less. I am careful with using water.

In the drawing I wanted to represent water as the raw material of our existence so I drew hands immersed in water as if they were collecting it. Water is very important for every living being not only human but also animal and vegetable. It is everywhere, however, we must guard and maintain it as we found it in the past, to leave it to other living beings and future generations. So as a slogan I chose "Water must be everywhere”.

My drawing try to enage people to choose the world we want to live in, since now is the time and the right moment to take action to protect the planet and if we wait longer, it will be too late. In which condition do we want to leave the Earth for the next few years and also for the new generations? And that is the point, we need to be clear on what we have to do: to choose which planet we want a beautiful, colourful, green and blue planet or a place in which life disappeared and we are unrespectful. We need to think if we want to be on a planet where you cannot breathe pure air and everything around us is black, or if we want a green Earth, natural as we have had it until now. If we do not take care fo the Earth we could end up constantly breathing polluted air or even become extinct, which is why it is so important to choose well which planet Earth we want: the blue planet or the black planet.

Haoxiyan Dam

National Water Museum of China. Qiantang Experimental Primary School, Hangzhou. Hua Youan.

Haoxiyan Dam, which means Good River Dam, is located in Lishui City, Zhejiang Province, China it was built in the Tang Dynesty and has a history of 1166 years. Once upon a time, there was an ‘evil’ stream, which often threatened the people along the river with raging floods and towering white waves. The industrious, brave and wise Chinese invented the concept of ‘combination of blocking and dredging’. On the one hand, they build barrages and dams to block floods. On the other hand, the sluices where are used to regulate the flow of water to bring clear water into villages and fields. Since then, farmers could drive cattle to plough the fields, plant seedlings in paddyfields and fertilise them. Women washed clothes by the river, and children flew paper kites on the willow dike happily. By turning the ‘Evil’ river into the Good river, this great ancient water conservancy project is honoured as the Good River Dam. The city has been free of flooding and the people are living a peaceful and affluent life. Now, it is still a scenic spot with beautiful scenery to linger on.

The water, mountains and trees which appear in the space mirror are what people wish to have in the future. It also advocates that people all over the world need to protect water resources as soon as possible. Protect our common blue planet!

EPAL Water Museum, Lisbon. Colégio Valsassina, Lisboa. Afonso Costa, 12th grade

"Water runs, time runs away. Every year the problem of water waste becomes more concerning. More and more, we leave the water running and time passing, ending up losing both. This drawing intends to criticize and highlight the discrimination in the distribution and availability of potable water between less developed and more developed countries, as well as the scarcity that will result from its waste. In order to demonstrate that the current waste of this resource will lead to ts scarcity in the future, the hourglass was chosen as a symbol of time. On the upper part of the drawing, both the current waste of water and the disparity in its availability between more and less developed countries is presented, while, on the lower part of the composition, the number of people has diminished, resulting from the waste that leads to the scarcity of the resource."

I’ve decided to do something unique to hand over to the competition. When I saw the theme of the competition, I immediately connected to our SDG Goals and linking it to something abstract yet unique. Hues of blue with white dots and with abstract lines and curves made the artwork divine. I tried to bring out the message to preserve the water that we have and take care of it as many people are wasting water. I also focused on ensuring that water encompasses all. In the background, I added waves and added white dots connected representing our communities united to ensure water. The 3-d Blue patterns mirror the land that we must protect and take care of. I assure you that I drew quite an ideal community the world would like to have, water for all, reconciliation and dignity, uniting and helping people in need.

Leonida Trutà Water Museum Cluj-Napoca Romania. 'Horea' Gymnasium School Cluj-Napoca, Sana Brimo-Hayek.

The future of water is up to us, this being conveyed by the words: “the water we need is gone”. Meaning that the clear, pure water we want we no longer exist in the nearest future unless we take urgent measures. When water will become scarce because of our carelessness, it will also take away our greenness, hence the water drops rising towards the sky, having taken some plants along with them. With water gone, life on earth we disappear, this message is being illustrated by the image of the Earth-human figure scrutinising the heavens begging for water.

Water is essential…let’s preserve it

Natural History Museum, Venice. Primary School “Ballarin”, Valli di Chioggia, 5TP.

Our class is particulary environmentally aware infact we try to support separate waste collection and recycling, therefore it seemed right to us, to talk about the “recycling” of water. That’s why we did a historical/scientific/geographical research in our territory, discovering areas where water purification and recycling take place. We realized that near the school there is ca’ di Mezzo oasis: a very rare environment, a unique microcosm where plants practice water recycling and phytopurification. In the naturalistic Oasis of Ca’ di Mezzo, located in Codevigo (PD), the waste water coming from the Altopiano canal is naturally purified by the roots of the plants and then, throught canals specially built by the Consorzio Bacchiglione Brenta, with the contribution of the Veneto Region, reintroduced into the South lagoon. Thanks to this experience and visit of the Oasis inspired us to respect water and better understand that it is fundamental to the survival of a living species. This is where our collective work comes from: we have represented some animals, fish and birds living in the oasis, one of the main activities of our territory (work in the fields) and humans (children and adults) who watch and conider the importance of RECYCLING.
