"Adopt a River"

Each participating school will choose a local river to adopt as their own. The JC-WISE team will then provide training courses on methodologies for selected teachers and students from each school, to prepare the students to take on the role of citizen scientist. Students who receive the training will conduct surveys and collect relevant data on important dimensions of local rivers. Their thematic projects could focus on the river's water quality or ecology, or they could compile oral histories on the river's social and cultural significance.

Teachers and students can learn more about local rivers by visiting Rivers@HK Database.

Teachers’ Training Workshop on Core Activities
The first Teachers’ Training Workshop on Core Activities, will be organised in collaboration with the Hong Kong Geographical Association and Green Power, to provide participants with an in-depth knowledge of Hong Kong’s rivers and the concept of water footprint, as well as the methodologies for conducting the Programme’s thematic projects. The participants, upon completion of the training programme, will be able to lead their students to take part in our Programme’s two core activities--“Adopt a River” scheme and “Water Wise School” scheme--and conduct thematic projects on local rivers and water sustainability promotion.
