Water is important for the survival of living things. 70% of the earth's surface is covered by water. However, not all of the water on earth has been utilized optimally. Well, the fact is that water pollution is one of the concerns and there is a threat of a water crisis/scarcity. In fact, we can actually recycle and harvest water! In fact, about 95% of the water that enters our homes goes down the drain. Well, in this Workshop on Sustainable Water, you will learn how to do water harvesting that is useful for maximizing existing water sources for daily needs that can reduce the impact of natural disasters such as floods and landslides, so you can start your own water harvesting at home!
The activity begins by listening to an explanation of the water cycle, where the water originates from, how it is used, to how water can be used again. We will also listen to explanations about water management at the household scale, where we use water from, and where it flows after we use it.
After hearing the explanation, we will explore Sendalu Permaculture. We will look at water management there, see the use of water effectively and efficiently, and its application in our household scale.
After exploring, we will try to harvest rainwater. Design a holding tank, learn how it works, and apply it on our household scale.
