Future of Water

800 451 Stroud Water Research Center

The increasing scarcity of drinking water is beginning to capture the world’s attention — but surprisingly, a radical, and unlikely, source of water might just be found in one of the Earth’s driest places — Windhoek, Namibia.

This lesson is part of Retro Report’s Environmental Education Collection, featuring short videos, lesson plans, and student activities. Human actions and interactions with ecosystems across the globe, like the construction of nuclear power plants, deforestation, and the reintroduction of species to old habitats, have significant consequences. This collection helps students explore the effects of environmental policies and processes, giving an understanding of the profound impact humans have on the planet.

Stroud Water Research Center Educator Mary Paxton-Boeni contributed learning activities to the Future of Water lesson.
