This resource for 11-14 year olds provides opportunities for young people to learn and think critically about water issues, before taking informed and meaningful action themselves.

Water Week can be held at any time of year, but many schools find the summer term works well. The resources have been streamlined for 2016 to enable schools to complete activities in just one or two sessions, but they retain flexibility for extension.

Any funds that are raised go towards the Oxfam’s water, sanitation and hygiene promotion (WASH) projects.

We have also produced Water Week SEN.

Owing to the publication date of this resource, some of the content (including statistics and links) may need updating.
