National Water Week

Each year, National Water Week is celebrated during October, aiming to inspire individuals, communities and organisations across Australia to understand and take action to help protect and conserve our most precious resource – water.

Access to clean water is hugely important to our daily lives, and it’s up to all of us to protect our water environments and resources and use water wisely.

2023 Theme: United by water 

Each year, a new National Water Week theme is selected to engage and inspire the community, and bring water to the forefront of our minds as we focus on all involved with this precious resource.

This year’s National Water Week theme ‘United by water’ celebrates water’s vital role in connecting all life on Earth, across countries, cultures and species. Water touches every aspect of development. It drives economic growth, supports healthy ecosystems, and is essential and fundamental for life.

As part of our National Water Week, students are encouraged to create a colourful A3 poster (preferably in landscape format) that shows us their interpretation of how water unites us all.
