The importance of water: visiting the London-Middlesex Children’s Water Festival

May 22, 2019

From the 14th until the 17th of May, kids in our community could visit the Children’s Water Festival at Fanshawe Conservation Area. It is a fun and educational event for students in grades 2 through 5 to learn about the importance of water in their daily lives.

Good Neighbors Canada was at the event to see how youth is learning about water and the environment. There are many activities focused on showing children how water is filtered, how floods can be prevented and how some people struggle to have access to water.

The group, between the ages of 9 and 12, meets once a month to voice their opinions on museum exhibits and community events. They watched Mina’s story on our YouTube channel and were amazed with the fact that her family only earns 70 cents a day while working full-time.
