Thames Water Makeover for Schools
Eleanor delivering a workshop
Do your pupils and teachers know what they can do to save water? Empower staff and students to reduce your school's water use and carbon emissions.
Free water-saving help
Available free to schools in London, the Thames Water Makeover programme educates and creates lasting behaviour change to sit alongside the company's drive for water efficiency in schools.
Global Action Plan introduces students and staff to the importance of water conservation and gives them with the knowledge and resources to measure and reduce their water consumption.
Participating schools also receive a free water audit and retrofit of water efficient equipment from Aqualogic.
How does it work?
10-30 students form a School Action Team which is then responsible for championing the water-saving cause.
The Action Team attends two workshops that show the importance of water conservation. The team develops ideas and campaigns that gets the whole school to save water. Global Action Plan supports them throughout the process.
What does a Water Makeover provide?
Thames water is helping schools
