Sustainable Development Goal 6
Developing the introduction
Overall Aim of Sustainable Development Goal 6
Water is the source of life on Earth, a great natural value that covers 71% of the surface of our planet, the most common chemical compound and the necessary basis for the existence of all life on the planet. The high content in plants (up to 90%) and in the human body (about 70%) only confirms the importance of this component, which has no taste, smell and color. The role of water in human life is invaluable: it is used for drinking, food , washing, various household and industrial needs. Water is life The role of water in human life can be determined by its share in the body and organs, each cell of which is rich in an aqueous solution of essential nutrients. Water is one of the effective means of physical education, widely used for personal hygiene, recreational physical education, hardening and water sports. This is due to geophysical conditions, human economic activity, often reckless and irresponsible, which significantly increases the load of water resources and water to their pollution. A huge amount of water goes to the needs of cities and industry, which not only consume but also pollute water, dumping about 2 million tons of waste in water bodies every day. The same is true for agriculture, where millions of tonnes of waste products and fertilizers are poured into waterways from farms and fields. In Europe, of the 55 rivers, only 5 are considered clean, while in Asia all rivers are heavily littered with agricultural waste and metals. In China, 550 of the 600 cities are short of water; due to heavy pollution, fish do not survive in water bodies, and some rivers that flow into the ocean simply do not reach it.
Why is it important for educational community?
The question of protecting water sources from pollution and depletion is acute all over the world. The future of humanity is in question with regard to drinking water. Pure drinking water will be a high-value coin for goods that we currently consider a luxury.
Preserving the purity of water and providing the population with clean drinking water is an issue of important health, economic and social importance for all mankind.
It is important for the development and education of students through environmental activities and lessons for the preservation of clean water. The philosophy of environmental management focuses on the prudent and economical use of resources to achieve a balance between:
- short-term / long-term economic benefit;
- long-term environmental protection;
• proper management of environmental structures and processes. In this sense, it is a process of control over human activity that affects the environment, and the ultimate goal is to reduce the harmful effects to a minimum. When young people are informed, they start living in an environmentally friendly and environmentally friendly way.
Key dimensions of Sustainable Development 6
Ensure access to clean drinking water for all people around the world.
To provide access to sanitary and hygienic conditions (reliable drainage systems and good waste management) and civic education in health and hygiene habits for all people around the world.
Monitor water quality to reduce water pollution.
Protect and restore aquatic ecosystems, including mountains, forests, wetlands, aquifers and lakes.
The interplay between Sustainable Development Goal 6 and the acquisition of 21st century skills
To improve and optimize water use by developing better technologies for its reuse.
Saving water requires little effort, but it’s all worth it. Don’t think that your actions don’t matter. Anyone who has the desire can make lifestyle changes to reduce water consumption. The important thing is that every change becomes a sustainable habit, not a momentary phenomenon.
People from different communities need more knowledge so that this knowledge plays an important role in improving water and sanitation management.
