Just Add Water
Communities to Rent from CWEC:
“Just Add Water” a starter kit
All you need to host a Children's Water Festival in your community.
The Children's Water Education council (CWEC) would like to invite you to become a partner in this important program and contribute to the environmental education of the youth in your community.
Our mission is to educate students about the importance of water conservation, protection, technology, and ecology.
A Children's Water Festival offers a unique water education program which promotes a 'hands-on' learning environment, delivered in a manner that is fun and interactive. The "Just Add Water" starter kit would provide 10 core activity centres that can be easily set-up and transported to your community.
CWEC Partnering with
