Do we use water in a sustainable way or squander it? Who owns the world’s rivers? Children in the UK turn on a tap for a constant supply of fresh, safe water, and many of them have no idea what life is like for people without this resource. Focusing on the Middle East, Water Works examines the demands placed on this limited natural resource; geographical disparities of access and water as a source of possible future conflicts. Students will decide for themselves if our current rate of water consumption is sustainable and how water conflicts might be resolved.
