"Water Wise School"

The concept of Water Footprint will be disseminated at participating schools, through the display of educational publicity materials prepared by the JC-WISE team, at such locations as school canteens and food kiosks. The team will also provide training courses on the concept of Water Footprint for selected students, enabling them to serve as Water Wise ambassadors.

An innovative and the first-of-its-kind Water Footprint Calculator, has been designed to help popularize the Water Footprint concept, through website and mobile app. The calculator will help visualize the Water Footprint of the food items we popularly consume in Hong Kong.

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.
