Schools water education & engagement report
Throughout the school years 2014-15 -16-17, eco action games, with its delivery partner Green Gumption, has run a schools education and behavioural change project on behalf of its client Thames Water.
Concentrating primarily on a quantitative study of the attitudes, opinions and behaviours of children from the ages of 6 to 11 and their families, both before and after the project took place in their school, we have some fascinating insights into the understanding of schoolchildren regarding water and its use.
In the first year of the project, we surveyed over 1800 children and over 500 families about their attitudes towards water and water saving, making this one of the biggest studies into water attitudes and awareness in the UK to date. We then received feedback from over 350 children and 150 families, after the project had run in their school, for the post-project evaluation.
We have subsequently run the project for a further two years, and have worked with 76 schools and spread the water saving messages to approximately 25,000 school children. in the summer of 2017, we will release an updated report that will consolidate the results from the three years the project has run for. come back in the summer to download the updated version of the report
The results are fascinating and extremely positive in the proof that our games-centric, positive approach to eco-education for primary and secondary level education is extremely effective and cost efficient.
