Water

Hanna’s class:

Goal no. 6 of the UN Sustainable Development Goal is “Clean Water and Sanitation.”

E_SDG-goals_Goal-06

This is the last goal we will look at.

Why is access to clean water and sanitation so important? Why can this issue cause conflicts, both between companies, ethnic groups and even nations?

In pairs you will choose a water-related conflict and co-write a text about this conflict. You can do this by using Google Docs or Padlet – just remember that both of you need to have access to the document.

You will need to include:

  • what is the conflict about? Explain the issues, and what led to this conflict
  • where and for how long has this conflict taken place?
  • how is the conflict being handled? Protests, demonstrations, law suits, armed conflict, etc.
  • what kind of solution would you offer to this conflict?

On Wednesday, you will join another pair to talk about the conflict you have chosen, and to listen to the research they have done on another water-related conflict.
