Winning the SA national water prize competition was awesome as it allows us to compete now in Sweden.Tell us what the water concern in your country is!
South Africa's consumable water supply is becoming depleted for various reasons including things like drought, wastage of water and lack of conservation of waterFrom where comes your interest in water?
My natural concern and care for the environment at largeThis is what I think is one of the solutions for a sustainable future:
Watse conservation should become a subject and become part of the curriculum in schools. From primary school level and part of their assessment, must be linked to compulsory projects concerning the environment
Water scarcity is becoming an increasing global phenomenon; its effects have been evident worldwide, particularly in our country, South Africa in provinces such as Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal . Although in recent months, certain parts of the country have been blessed with heavy rainfall, however, these rains can never be enough to rescue South Africa from being a water scarce country. Furthermore to that, the ever increasing population growth in the country is adding more strain to the available water resources; and therefore, new and innovative ways of saving water are needed. Hydro Conservator is a project that intends on reducing the quantity of water that is wasted in households across South Africa daily during the showering process.
