Water for the World
March 25 - March 29
Water for the World (W4TW) works in conjunction with National Engineering Month (NEM), the Toronto Public Library (TPL) and Engineers of Tomorrow (EoT) to deliver workshops, led by engineering and social innovation volunteers, to students in grades 7-8. The interactive workshops, which involve a water filter building activity, are intended to educate, generate insightful discussion, and raise awareness about how students, science and engineering play a role in promoting access to resources like drinking water. In the next 25 years, 1/3 of the world’s population will face severe water scarcity With 20% of the world’s total freshwater resources and the longest marine coastline of any country in the world, Canada plays a pivotal role in managing global water resources. The next generation of Canadians must be well-equipped to tackle the world’s water challenges. W4TW aims to ignite a sense of pragmatism to develop future system change leaders through this program.
