Reply To: Module 3 – Global Inequality

The goal I would chose would be goal 6 which is clean water and sanitation. This goal aims to achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all and to achieve access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all. To start, I would teach lessons based on water sanitation to develop the children’s awareness of people in the world who are affected by the lack of clean water and how terrible the situation is.
A great place to start is in our own school. Schools and our homes are places that we waste clean water everyday. By bringing awareness to this it helps the children see how much we take for granted. The children could engage in a project of researching how much water we roughly use in the day, this includes finding out how much water we use by flushing the toilet and filling our water bottles. Children could then make a group effort by encouraging people not to waste water while washing or flushing the toilet unnecessarily.
