Grundschule „Geschwister Scholl“ Perleberg
Perleberg, März 2011
During our two years work in the EUROPEAN COMENIUS PROJECT “Water, water, everywhere, nor any drop to drink” we have learned a lot about water.
For example: We visited the waterwork which is supplying the drinking water for the town of Perleberg and its villages nearby.
It was very interesting to get to know that only about 1% of the total amount of water on earth is fresh water, also called sweet water!
And in Germany, each person uses at least 100 litres per day!
That is a lot. And we can be sure that we get pure fresh water, because many people in these waterworks care for that.
But millions of people, especially the poor in Africa and Southeast Asia, they don’t have pure and healthy water to drink. They get ill by drinking polluted water.
What can we do?
We don’t waste water, when we do our daily washing and cleaning.
We take care of our clothes. If we want to play outside, we will take older clothes for that reason. So they don’t have to be washed every day.
We don’t pour any things into the toilet or into the wash basin that could pollute our drinking water.
It is good for all of us that people like you are engaged in protecting our environment. Thank you for your work. We wish you a successful work!
