Look who's "World" Class in Water Conservation!

On 16 January 2012, Greenlightforgirls.org will hold its first-ever “World” class on Water Conservation, with Levi Strauss & Co. and 84 girls from the St. John’s International Middle School in Waterloo, Belgium.

For this first World class, students will engage in a hands-on activity to promote awareness about the challenge of water conservation; they will learn about a creative way science has been used to reduce water usage in the lifecycle of a pair of jeans; and they will be challenged to come up with their own ideas for conserving water in their families, schools and communities.

Through World class, Greenlightforgirls.org and their partners seek to:

  • stimulate youth involvement in addressing real-world challenges within school, at home and in the wider community;
  • inspire young people, especially girls, to use technical and scientific knowledge to address real-world challenges; and
  • promote women role models in technical and science-related professions who are helping address real-world challenges.

Greenlightforgirls.org – in collaboration with our partners from the private and public sectors, academia and industry – develops and carries out “World” classes on topics linking science, technology, engineering and mathematics to sustainability, literacy, and wellbeing.

Please contact us if you or your organization would like to work with Greenlightforgirls.org to develop a Greenlightforgirls.org World class, or to carry out a World class in your school or community.
