The Children's Water Festival Highlights the Importance of Conservation

Understanding the impact that water has on the environment is vital in generating progress for conservation efforts, so the Children's Water Festival gives youth an entertaining and educational outlet to learn about how they can make a difference in their communities.

To ensure that as many participants as possible are involved, the Children's Water Festival invites teachers from the schools surrounding the Fanshawe Conservation Area in London to enroll their classes, which can range from grades two to five.

During the festival, children learn about the difference between groundwater and surface water, and how each affects the development of communities. In addition, the festival features interactive games and activities to get children engaged and to make the messages received more memorable and inspiring to them.
