The drawing is a reflection of colours in the farm which are brought through sustainable practices and constant irrigation facilities in the villages of India. The story of life on the farm and its rich biodiversity has also been displayed through the drawing. The drawing depicts the importance of dams, the canals which have reached the interior villages and the rivers which bring minerals and life to the crops and the produce. The waters from the rivers truly bring ‘rainbows’ to the farms and people’s lives.

In the future, water will become the most precious thing on earth. Humans live under the management of robots that do not need water. Due to lack of water, the whole earth has become desert. This is a shop selling water. Not only does it cost ten dollars for every drop of water, but a person can only buy ten milliliters at most. If we do not save water and continue to waste water resources, this is likely to be our future life. Therefore, please cherish every drop of water, protect ourselves and protect nature!

Clean Water

WAMU-NET Advisory Committee. SMK Medamit, Sarawak, Malaysia. Vincent Wong Chen Hock.

Clean water is needed by all of us for a healthy life. Clean water is one of the types of water-based resources that are of good quality and commonly used by humans for consumption or in carrying out their daily activities, including sanitation. For drinking water consumption according to the health department, the requirements of drinking water are tasteless, odourless, colourless, and do not contain heavy metals. Although water from natural sources can be drunk by humans, there is a risk that this water has been contaminated by bacteria. So, we as human beings need to take care of water so that our next generation can use clean water.

Save Water

Water Museum of Udaipur, Rajasthan. Sunbeam Lahartara, Varanasi, India. Armaan Ahmad.

It is a simple terms but have a big impact on us. Every year specially in summers we face a huge scarcity of water. We say save water do we mean it? Not exactly. About 250 – 575 liters of water being wasted every day from that 0.5% of fresh and drinkable water. Many of the countries faced and are facing drought in this summer. Peoples are running here to there for water. That one minute of letting open the tap while brushing can complete the thrust of a person. In this Summer the water scarcity rate has gone on a high level. We can create awareness for the same but again only we ourselves have to implement it. Some water harvesting techniques can be introduced for harvesting the rain water, reserving water at small area for everyone’s use, water tankers in every area, underground tanks etc. can be used. I have created this poster keeping in mind the main theme save water, a digital poster creating awareness for saving water with a slogan and important elements visualizing the written text.

People fail to understand the value of this liquid. The liquid which makes life possible on planet Earth. Since majority of them get water easily in their locality, they tend to take it for granted which eventually leads to wastage. Water should be priced much higher than oil, which would lead the people to realize the value of water and eventually, life. Afterall, if there is no Blue.. there won't be rather any green on this planet earth!

A world without water is neither imaginable nor acceptable. Think of a desert life where proper vegetation is rarely found. Only cactus or thorny shrubs are available. Mostly barren land is found. People of the land are found to be deprived of agricultural benefit – be it crops, fruits, flowers. Life of these people also becomes miserable due to the extreme scarcity of water and weather condition.

Nature's Daughter

Musée Mohammed VI - Aman, Marrakech, Morocco. Salma.

"Nature's daughter" is an art piece that represents creatures and their requirement for water. Since water is so plentiful on earth we couldn't have cared less where to find it more often than not. Yet over the long haul, water gets increasingly more significantly perceptible, climate change , pollution and different peculiarities impacted nature. So will people at any point notice this distinction before it's past the point of no return? Or will they keep continuously questioning about the changes in the climate, trying to run away from the responsibility of caring?

In my painting, I draw plants and animals like birds, fish, mammals, etc.. There are creatures in every corner of the world, no matter we can see or not. They are living in the forest or in the sea, influencing and depending on each other. However, some creatures have become extinct, and we need to protect the homes of animals and plants together. One hand in the picture holds up a green mountain, which means the protection of nature requires effort of each of us. Protecting biodiversity is everyone's responsibility. Only in this way can man and nature live in harmony.

Falling Apart

Yellow River Museum, Zhengzhou. Zhengzhou Chenzhong Experimental School, Zhengzhou, China. Zhou Yuluo.

The inspiration of my work is: when humans are thirsty, the earth selflessly provides water for us, but what if the earth becomes thirsty several years later? Is water inexhaustible? The answer is a definite “no” . Although 70.8% of the earth is covered by water, 97.55% of it is from sea, which can neither be directly drunk nor used for irrigation. Of the remaining 2.5% of fresh water, less than 1% of it can be used by humans. Indeed, from the emergence of primitive life on earth to now, water has been serving life and never stopping. But I wonder if you have ever thought: the tolerance of water is not unlimited. Today water resources are in short supply! There are mainly two reasons for this: first, the earth is short of water by nature; Second, humans’ destruction. We can't blame the earth for its lack of water, on the contrary, we should thank it for creating a beautiful home for us. So let's save water in daily life and call on the people around us to cherish and love water together!

It indicates that human beings are extravagant and wasteful on water use, for which the ground becomes dry and cracked, magma flows out and the Earth burns fiercely.

The Charm of Water

Yellow River Museum, Zhengzhou. Zhongxin Road Primary School, Zhengzhou, China. Pan Zhaoyuan.

Water gives birth to life; Water nourishes the universe. The Yellow River culture is an important part of Chinese civilization, it is the root and soul of the Chinese nation. “Root” means Chinese culture originates from the Yellow River culture, and “soul” means the core and values of Chinese civilization are derived from the same origin with those of the Yellow River culture. Li Bing built (in charge of) the Dujiangyan Water Project (starting around 256 B.C.), the project benefited surroundings and created a “Heavenly Land of Plenty". The Grand Canal (built in 486 B.C.), through which enormous vessels with passengers and cargoes go back and forth from Beijing to Hangzhou. The collapse of the Antarctic ice shelf and destruction of beautiful homes has left penguins nowhere to settle, which has set alarm bells ringing to human beings. This work reminds mankind to protect our freshwater resources by portraying the magnificent water heritage and the reality of global warming!

The Grand Canal of China was inscribed as World Cultural Heritage in 2014, representing the longest and largest hydraulic system in the world. The drawing When History Meets Future depicts a harmonious coexistence between the ancient stone bridge on the Grand Canal and the modern buildings. The Grand Canal has witnessed thousand of years of Chinese history and it also embraces the coming of a prosperous future. The Grand Canal brings huge benefits to the people. As an important bearer of our hydraulic history memory, the canal and its culture will be spread and cherished. Our little painter Yang Yaqi has grown up along the Canal. Since she was a little girl, her grandmother has told her stories about the Canal that was built thousands of years ago. Her love of the Canal has been vividly colored and shaped in the drawing. Now as she is learning the most advanced knowledge at school, she imagines to apply those technologies to the water, to create a brighter future for it and our people.

The Sundarbans are a vast forest on the coast of the Bay of Bengal. It is full of natural beauty but on the 20th of May 2020 the cyclone “Amphan” hit the Sundarbans affecting the lives of people living there. Houses had been torn apart, the fields being filled with brackish water making it unsuitable for farming. With their homes being destroyed along with their livelihoods, people in the Sundarbans faced a threat to their survival. With the Bay of Bengal near their place, saline water had flooded the place filling the ponds and tube wells and diluting the freshwater reserves. This caused an acute shortage of water used for daily life purposes and for drinking, even for the wild life. Wild animals like deer, wild hogs, wild buffalos, leopards and the Bengal tiger had to suffer because of the destruction in their habitat and salt water encroachment. Their homes had been destroyed by the cyclone too.

Water, which is important for survival, is at high risk. Global warming, pollution from industries, overuse or wastage of water, etc are some of the main causes for which waterbodies are drying or becoming too polluted for usage. Half of the world's wetlands have disappeared. In my piece of art it is pointed out that due to drying up of water the path the people used to enjoy for shipment and trading is now just a barren land in which there is a little hope that if we stop man made causes of pollution maybe this barren land will be filled with water again. By using the children to portray that just like they are sailing the paper boat in the puddle of water, there is a hope that ships will be sailing one day.

Wastefulness Is a Privilege

Ecomuseum Martesana, Milano. IIS Niccolò Macchiavelli, Pioltello, Italy. Silvia Elena Rovagnati, 4C.

Water is essential to our survival, all life comes from water, and through water it endures. There’s enough water on the planet for seven billion people, however, not everyone has access to it. This valuable resource is unevenly distributed and much of it is polluted or otherwise inaccessible. In the drawing, the abundance of water is personified in a woman, desperately trying to reach every person in need, but being dragged away, held back. Such life-granting beauty, confined inside a sink, falling from a tap left open. The same water that some people can afford to leave running down the drain, for others could make the difference between life and death. Being wasteful is a privilege that not everyone can afford.

I painted a hand coming out of the world, holding a piece of land. I did this because we can still decide if we do something to the problem with the water that we caused. It is all in our hands, so that is the statement that I wanted to make.

I am going to tell you a little bit about the idea behind my artwork. I have tried to show how different generations face water problems. Of course not everyone of every generation is the same, and I do not want to say this, but I hope to let people think a little more about what they can do for the climate and against rising water. Because it affects our children in the future. Now I will tell you a little bit more about the things you can really see in the artwork. You can see that the world in the water black and white is and above the water it has color. This describes that life is Good when the world isn't flooding. In the artwork you can see that the oldest generation experience little of the rising water, they sometimes even help it get a little worse. You can see that in the painting through the tilted tea cup, it is spilling some water. The middle generation stands a little lower in the water and tends to ignore the problems. And the youngest generation experiences the most problems, it is about their future.

I really like fairy tales. There is always something beautiful in fairy tales, something less beautiful. So it is on Earth. The Queen of Water has a beautiful part of the dress that is full of life, clean and cheerful, unfortunately she also has an ugly part full of waste. Water is important to us and that is why we have to keep it and pass it on to everyone around us, as my fairy tales that I love have told me.

Unfortunately, drinking water is increasingly being sold in plastic bottles, these bottles being a major source of pollution. According to National Geographic, only one of 6 bottles ends up being recycled, the rest ending up on the ocean floor, on the plains, in landfills or in incinerators. For the production of bottles, 30 million barrels of oil are consumed annually.

Water Fairy, Fairy of Life

Aquapic - Centru Educațional Pentru Copii, Timișoara. Theoretical HighSchool William Shakespeare, Timisoara, Romania. 1st grade.

Water is in constant motion and change. Fresh water is relatively scarce on Earth, only 3% of the total amount of water, it being the most important for the existence of life on Earth. However, freshwater areas are severely affected by habitat modification, fragmentation and destruction, by invasive exotic species, intensive fishing, excessive damming, pollution and climate change. Our students imagined a fairy who gathers in her hair polluted freshwater resources , filltering them through her body and then pouring them onto her unpolluted skirt. Here, the waters’ living things survive in a beautiful
harmony. Around the fairy they drew the activities through which children can contribute in maintaining our waters clean.
