The Process

We are looking for dynamic, environmentally-forward schools to join the Blue Water Schools Network. Join us in educating today’s students so they can make a difference and help create a Blue Future. To join us, we ask that you agree to our three pledges:

Get Involved - Blue Schools Network
Three Pledges - Pledge Number One - Blue Schools Network

Educate about water and the need to protect it.

Three Pledges - Pledge Number Two - Blue Schools Network

Educate about the universal human right to clean water.

Three Pledges - Pledge Number Three - Blue Schools Network

Educate about the harm plastics cause to water.

A Blue Water School is comprised of educators and students bringing awareness of the global and local water crises and the need to protect the planet’s dwindling freshwater. In keeping with the official commitments of the United Nations and many governments around the world, a Blue Water School also promotes the rights of everyone, everywhere, to safe, accessible drinking water.

There are many ways for educators to teach about the importance of protecting water.

From arts and history, to science and social studies, language, and math, awareness of our pledges can be taught in all subject areas. Using the Blue Water Schools Network Lesson Plan Resources, educators of all grades and subject areas can promote water awareness and encourage students to become active players in the protection of local water sources.

We also encourage and support partnerships with Water Allies, such as local nature-based and conservation groups (for example local water and river keepers), so that young people can get hands-on experience in understanding the role water plays in the health of our environment and ourselves.

We are a diverse community of educators dedicated to the protection of the planet’s water and promoting the human right to water.
