It's important to us here at Hunter Water to educate the next generation about the real world problem of water scarcity. Read about our Water Futures Challenge, which asks primary and high school students from the Lower Hunter to come up with creative water saving solutions.
We have a range of exciting programs that challenge students to tackle water sustainability issues here in the Lower Hunter and come up with new and innovative ways to help the community use less of our precious resource.
We are excited to launch our new eBook, Where's Our Water? This story was written by Aboriginal students from Newcastle High School to help share the value of our most precious resource with children in our community.
We're proud to work alongside Hunter Local Land Services to educate students on catchment and waterway health. Find out more about the current activities available for school students.
