6 Clean Water
and Sanitation

Scouts is the Start of Clean Drinking Water for All

Imagine a world where everyone has access to safe water. Protect your local waterway by organizing a shoreline cleanup, ensuring that the sinks in your house are leak-free or creating your own water filter.

Let's make sure that everyone has access to clean water for drinking and staying clean. As we know, washing our hands with clean water is the one the best ways to stay healthy and avoid getting sick!

Water you waiting for?
Today, almost 800 million people do not have access to clean water: that is 1 in 10 people! The amount and quality of water available for human consumption is being influenced by damaged ecosystems and pollution. Let’s get together to bring awareness and discuss the role each of us can play to ensure everyone has access to safe water.
