Wilma's Water Warriors empowering peers for the Mayor's Environment Expo

Grade 8 students at Wilma Hansen are taking on water conservation for their School Showcase Project.
The Grade 8 students at Wilma Hansen School are embracing everyday opportunities to help conserve and preserve our water resources! They are engaging their peers, educating and empowering them to rethink everyday actions in support of healthier community.

For their Showcase School project for the Mayor’s Environment Expo, they are promoting the use of reusable water bottles, turning off their taps in support of World Water Day, educating their partner schools about water conservation, and at the same time, fundraising for a variety of global causes through CAWST and Free the Children.

“We are too selfish with our water,” says 13-year-old, Gabby Keiran “I don’t believe half of Calgarians understand the full problem or the amount of water they are consuming. We only have one earth so we need to generous and kind to it.”

Join us at the 2013 Mayor’s Environment Expo, June 4-6 at the Municipal Building and be inspired by today’s youth leaders.

Read about what other showcase schools are doing to protect land, air and water.

The Mayor’s Environment Expo thanks Encana and Calgary Transit for their partnership in the Showcase School program. Encana is sponsoring a $250 grant exclusive to the Showcase Schools. Calgary Transit is providing Showcase Schools with free transportation to and from the Expo.
