“Participating in the Great Waters Challenge taught us many things about our local water systems and the relationship that Indigenous Peoples of our area have had with water.  Learning about the challenges that our global water systems face, students felt compelled to take action! We started an initiative at our school to reduce the use of single use plastics through educating our community and providing alternatives.  The Great Waters Challenge was a spring board that took our learning on an exciting journey and helped us each develop as social activists and global citizens.”
