Coordinating and integrating water education
The Water for Life Education Program is an integral component of the 2010 Metropolitan Water Plan. Water for Life works to coordinate water education across the greater Sydney metropolitan region.
Key Water for Life coordination projects included:
- collaborative development of the Water Education Plan for greater Sydney 2008-2012 (PDF)
- biennial progress reporting through the Progress Report on Water Education (PDF)
- formation of a cross-sectoral capacity building group to coordinate professional development and support for water educators
- partnerships to deliver innovative water education projects to engage priority sectors in the community in saving water.
Education is also an integral component of the implementation of many of the large range of initiatives underway through the 2010 Metropolitan Water Plan. For example, the greywater guidelines included a significant education program to ensure the community was aware of changes that made it easier to re-use greywater in the home.
The Water for Life Education and Engagement Program continues to be overseen by the inter-agency Metropolitan Water Education Group.
Water for Life is funded by the NSW Government's Climate Change Fund.
