You are very welcome to Episode 5! This month we are discussing one of the most important resources on our blue planet- WATER! Currently, 7 out of 10 people have access to clean running water globally, but this will not be the case forever. Did you know that by 2040 most of the world won’t have enough fresh water to meet demand each year? Have you ever turned on your tap and thought about where your water comes from? What would you do if it ran out?
Water really is the source of all life, including ours, without it we would not be here. Our planet is in crisis and we need to start thinking about the importance of water on our planet and our global water consumption - so grab that cup of tea and join us as we dive into the deep end!
