Week 6

Halfway through the semester already, it’s so shocking how fast time passes. That’s another reason why we need to change the way we live today.

Water is what makes the world go round. Part of this week’s activity was to list some purposes of water. People mentioned that we need it to survive, it keeps us hydrated and that every living organism needs it in order to survive.

It is necessary to teach people the importance of water, especially since “Freshwater makes up a very small fraction of all water on the planet. While nearly 70 percent of the world is covered by water, only 2.5 percent of it is fresh. The rest is saline and ocean-based. Even then, just 1 percent of our freshwater is easily accessible, with much of it trapped in glaciers and snowfields.” (“Clean Water Crisis, Water Crisis Facts, Water Crisis Resources – National Geographic,” n.d.)

 

I’ve just posted the link of the experiment we learnt about in this weeks lecture:
