On March 22nd, World Water Day, the Waterloo-Wellington chapter of the Children’s Water Education Council (CWEC) held their 2nd annual Soup Fest. This event was intended to raise awareness of World Water Day, as well as fund raise for festivals in the Region that aim to educate students about our water sources.
The Children’s Water Education Council is composed of 25 regions across the province and has the mandate of educating youth to respect our water sources. Many of these regions have their own Children’s Water Festivals, as well as other environmental events and camps available to youth.
The Waterloo-Wellington Children’s Groundwater Festival will also take place Monday May 30th to Friday June 3rd, 2011.
