Scottish Water launches nationwide youth education programme to create ‘water citizens'

Scottish Water has launched a nationwide education programme to encourage young people to protect the future of the country’s water.


Scottish Water said: “Generation HO is designed to inspire young people to become part of a movement to celebrate and protect the nation’s water, one of the most valuable and precious resources, creating responsible ‘water citizens’ for a flourishing Scotland and connecting them to Scottish Water by raising awareness of the company and its crucial role across Scotland.”


There are 700,000 young people in Scotland. The programme spans the primary and secondary age groups and includes trips, lessons and challenges covering issues such as water supply, health, water scarcity, water efficiency, biodiversity, water safety and the history of the water supply.


All lessons are aligned to the Scottish Curriculum and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and are designed to develop important transferable skills including creativity, collaboration, problem-solving and critical thinking.
