MyWater Check Campaign
The environmental literacy and lack of environmental skills in many underserved communities contribute to a lack of recognition of the value of water. Creating awareness, education, and developing relevant skills develops a profound understanding of the benefits of having healthy aquatic ecosystems and their value to all lives.
The MyWater Check Campaign aims to create awareness and a profound understanding of the impacts of pollution in water systems. Creating the awareness and understanding over time will enhance people’s value towards these precious systems. Furthermore, the campaign also aims to generate data using citizen science methods to highlight the plight of rivers and find ways to use this data to engage the greater communities and government structures.
The MyWater Check Campaign aims to develop knowledge capacity and a broad understanding of river ecology to the community environmental activists working hard to protects their local rivers along the catchment areas. This training will also prepare communities activists to participate with confidence during the MyWater Check Campaign. The training is offered at no cost to the community participants, and it is limited to 30 participants to maximise the learning experience.
