Calling all Water Explorers...
Posted by Water Explorer on 14 May 2015

If bonus points and World Environment Day get you excited, then read on…

World Environment Day is coming up on the 5th of June and we’re on a Mission to spread the word about the importance of our world’s water.

You guys are already doing a fantastic job so we want you to be our messengers! To do this we just need you to film your responses to the questions below so that we can share your message and encourage others to follow in your footsteps.

  1. Why is water important?
  2. What is your favourite thing about Water Explorer?
  3. Why do kids need to take the lead?
  4. What’s your water message to world leaders?
  5. What is the best thing about being a Water Explorer?
  6. Can you tell us about the specific water project you’ve been involved in?
  7. What changes have you made to your own life to help protect the world’s water?

Send us your videos using the upload video function on your school’s newsreel.

You can film your answers however you like and we encourage you to get creative! You may want to pick one question or answer them all using short plays, songs, poems, artwork or just saying them straight to the camera.

What’s in it for you?

Your work will be showcased to hundreds of people at HSBC’s World Environment Day celebration event in London. So if you’ve wanted your voice to be heard this is your chance to shine!

Upload your videos to your newsreel by Thursday 21st May and we’ll also give you 250 bonus points for your efforts to help you climb up the Water Explorer leader board.

We can’t wait to see your videos. Click here for some top tips on how to record a great video. 

Contact  info@waterexplorer.org  if you have any questions.

Good luck!
