Are you saving water whilst washing your hands?

HYDRIA / MIO-ECSDE. Cospicua Girls Learning Support Centre Malta. Jasmine Geriwa, Yasmin Micallef.

"When our teacher told us about the project we were very excited and together we decided to produce a video to make our project as interesting as possible, and in order to get us students completely involved and immersed in its production. Together with our teacher we discussed how to do the video. We were only two students, we would be doing the acting while our teacher would be recording the video. The other student also recorded a rap song in our native language, which contained a message promoting saving water, to accompany the video. We now shot the video which showed me leaving the water running whilst washing my hands. The other student comes in and stops me from wasting water, whilst singing the rap song.With the help of our teacher, we used a video editing software to edit and mix the video and the song together. We also decided to insert subtitles in English in order to help non-Maltese speakers to understand the lyrics. Through this video we aim to become an inspiration for others to remember to save water particularly during hand washing."

Protecting Marine Life

National Water Museum of China. Jiaxiang Foreign Language School, Chengdu. Yang Kexin.

The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) reports that the problem of marine debris has seriously polluted the oceans affecting the survival and reproduction of marine life. From this perspective, the 11-year-old author uses stop-motion animation to show a turtle’s happy life and natural reproduction in the sea. After the baby turtle is born, it has successfully escaped the natural enemies but finally gets entangled in the garbage in those beautifully. The sea is polluted by garbage but marine creatures cannot escape their homes! The author hopes this video could increase people’s awareness towards the protection of marine ecology. And it calls action to protect our common blue planet!

Endless Water

3rd - 4th Grade.

“Endless Water” - is what we all hope will happen, even those who don't have a tap where the water gushes. With my video, I try to draw attention to the importance that water has in our lives and how important it is to be aware that it can be depleted. Water is for everyone for everyone and without it, all the Biodiversity on which man depends will be extinguished. We cannot be the plague on our planet.

AQUATIKA – FRESHWATER AQUARIUM KARLOVAC. Elementary school GRABRIK, Karlovac. Jana Božićević, Roza Grginčić, Lorna Ilić, Lana Požar, 8th Class.

We are from Karlovac, a city situated on the banks of four rivers – the Mreznica, the Dobra, the Korana and the Kupa. Everything in Karlovac is connected to the four rivers – the freshwater Aquatic Aquarium, the romantic walks along the banks and the drinking water. We use rivers to name everything weekend – kindergartens, sports clubs, restaurants, our own children. Our rivers are very clean, beautiful and full of life. We want them to stay that way. With this video we want to remind people all over the world that nature is our treasure, that the Earth is our responsibility not our property.Nature gives us everything – food, protection, fun in life. We have to appreciate what we have because the Earth is the only one. Give nature of the same treatment we get from it. For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; In this century he is beginning to realise that in order to survive he must protect it. We hope that this work will help save our greatest treasure – nature! We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors we borrow it from our children. The environment is no one’s property to destroy, it’s everyone’s responsibility to protect.

The video is about what we can do to safeguard the environment. We explained why we need to save the water, with the photos we want to show how it is now and what the water used to be. In the images the water can be clear or polluted, but we have put more clear photos because it is a positive view on what we can do. Behind each photo there is a reasoning that can change from person to person.

The work is a short movie made by the students of the class I B of our middle school in Mezzolombardo (Tn) Italy. It is a set of simp:e solutions to prevent water Ioss during our daily routine. The studcnts understood thcir own impact on thc environment and on die climate change after their studies ofthe waterproperties and cycle in science and the measurement oftheir ecological and water footprint. After studying the goals of2030 Agenda, theyunderstood that big changes can be reached not only at high level but also with a Iot of small changes in everyone's everyday life. After a short introduction, the students show some of their small actions to avoid the water Ioss. It is diffcult to think about the Iack of water in a region like ours, full of mountains, waterfalls, rivers and lakes, but we are all connected and what a Child do here can have a negative or positive effect on the life of another Child in another place ofour planet Earth.

Water is life

Museo de Mequinenza, Spain. IES Joaquín Torres, Mequinenza. Andrea Montull Nieves.

The project “Water is life” is a work that was born with the objective of transmitting to all the people of the world how important water is in our lives, because water is present in a large part of our day to day and our actions. Also, does anyone imagine our life without water? The answer is clear, for this reason, the main objective of this project is to help everyone who see it to understand that if the water runs out, life would disappear and we would not exist. To do this, we wanted to visually convey everything that water means to us, and on the other side, what we could not do if there were no water on our planet. With this scheme, we want people to reflect on which of the two options they want in their life. In conclusion, we want to send a message to the whole world encouraging them to get involved in caring for the environment and specifically, in the responsible use of water, our water, because if we do not do it the planet would stop being blue. And who would imagine our blue planet without being blue? Let’s take care of our water, because then, we will be taking care of our life and our environment!

Water Our Life

Student association "CAP Malraux", Lycée International Français André Malraux (LIFAM)

We wanted in our presentation to show the different uses of water by man. Man consumes a lot but does not pay attention.Today it is time to change to prove that we can do it and that soon if we keep this attitude we will die from our actions. If we continue wasting water, we will blame ourselves. Water is vital for us and for many other living beings so this project has allowed us to transmit this information and we hope it will be heard as we said in the video "build a better future and change the world".We address the world that water is in shortage and without it we will all die.We promise to change everything. It is up to us to do what is necessary, our life depends on it.

They demonstrate how lively their environmental sensitivity is, and how enthusiastically they are willing to fight to defend a heritage that they already realize is theirs. It is also noted how broad their horizon on the world is, and how they are already determined to identify causes and responsibilities, and to envisage their personal future commitment."

Water is the most useful molecule in this whole world. Every living being takes advantage of it. It is also used in watering, drinking and medicine as well. Water benefits all the organisms and is consumed in a large amount every day, and this leads to a lack of it day by day, so we must preserve it as much as possible, and use it for beneficial reasons. Let's not forget about the fact that there are many people who pollute water, and that's obviously a bad behavior. They also keep on polluting oceans and rivers even though they know that it's forbidden. We all hope that this type of behavior stops and let's all stand up against it and take care of these common problems in our world.

The future of humanity is based on water. Without water, there is no life. Perhaps wars will erupt in the future because of the absence of water. Neither oil nor gold will solve the earth's problems. Let's conserve water. A drop of water on your white day will help you in your dark day
