Objectives and results of the action A need to conduct this project came up from the realization from lack of knowledge of students about the importance of water, the problems this resource is facing and the importance of its proper management, as well as the processes and procedures thanks to which each of us has clean water available. Lack of creativity in approach and thematic prioritizing in the education is stumbling stone for students to learn and become aware citizens. Thus, the main goal of the project was to raise awareness among children and students in Banja Luka regarding water as a natural resource, problems it is facing and urgent need for its protection through events, competitions and direct interactive education with eco teams in schools.
