The Water Guardians

Colegio Santa Teresa De Jesus, Valladolid
County Spain Year 2013

In 2013, 11 year-olds Laura, Sara and their friends at Colegio Santa Teresa De Jesus, Valladolid in Spain noticed that water was being misused and not managed properly. They installed water collection containers for rainwater. In the washrooms, they made an accountability chart to map water use. To raise funds to fix leaky taps, they created craft products and sold them by organising a fair.
