Clean water and sanitation

Water management is crucial to sustainable development because clean freshwater and sanitation services are essential to human health and well-being.

Water doesn’t flow out of the tap by magic and sewage must be collected and treated: this implies long and complex processes, involving pipes and plants, state-of-the-art technologies, continuous quality control, machines, materials and energy. While substantial progress has been made to achieve the integrated management of water resources, billions of people still lack access to safe drinking water and sanitation. With MULTIPLIERS, starting in Italy, schools and communities will be engaged to increase their scientific understanding of water management and sustainability. Together, we will also undertake concrete actions to encourage sustainable behaviours to save and protect water resources and safeguard the environment.

“Base decision on facts, not on beliefs” – Kick-off Meeting of MULTIPLIERS project by Gesche Schifferdecker and Rosa Castañeda In schools, science is often presented in an abstract way and without a context – but if we want to get young people interested, topics need to be relevant to their everyday life.
