Get Ready for World Water Day with these Videos on ClickView

By Kate Kovalik

Water is a precious resource, relied upon by every person in the world. From our own hydration, to maintaining crops, and providing a source of entertainment, water is highly valuable. With such high demand for water supply, as well as natural crises such as drought, it is no wonder that there are serious concerns about preserving it. In addition, there are 663 million people across the globe who are living without access to safe water.

World Water Day is a United Nations initiative, designed to raise awareness about these issues, and spark action to provide this precious resource to all people. On 22 March, encourage your pupils to think globally and act locally, by considering the plight of others when it comes to clean drinking water, and considering the different initiatives they can participate in. To start conversation in your classroom, ClickView has compiled a number of videos about water, all of which have been contributed to the ClickView Exchange by the ClickView Community. They highlight the world’s oceans and waterways, as well as the value water holds for people worldwide.

If you’re already a ClickView customer you can access these videos, as well as over 12,000 more, through the ClickView Exchange, copy them to your personal workspace and push them into your school’s ClickView library.
