The Water Channel

June 14, 2012

Our project and its video was just posted on The Water Channel!

Here’s a description of what they do:

TheWaterChannel was launched at the WordWaterForum in 2009 in Istanbul as a partnership of MetaMeta Communications, Nymphaea, UNESCO-IHE, and Cap-Net. The idea was to support education and awareness in water by making video material available that is often scattered and easily lost. We wanted to ‘touch’ our visitors and to help inspire them to work towards a world of better water management. The first year exceeded our expectation in terms of uptake and content! Joint projects were carried out with a wide variety of organizations and new partners joined in.

In 2011 TheWaterChannel entered a new phase: TheNextWave. Our vision is to become an important force for change in water management by making it possible to provide fast learning, be an open source for practical and inspiring learning, and to bring water on many unexpected agenda’s! We will expand on all fronts: more videos, more side activities, and more real world presence!

Please go and check out other water-related videos and projects on The Water Channel!

Thanks The Water Channel for including DRIPS!

    Dear Sir or Madam,
    EduCamp is a project funded from European Commission under the leadership of the RWTH Aachen University in Germany. The project aims to enhance the school curricula in Egypt through providing additional materials and activities related to sustainable development. In this project, different universities and educational facilities in Europe and Egypt work together to inject the following disciplines in the school curricula (agriculture, biodiversity, energy and water).
    The proposed school activities and materials will be concluded in kits for the teachers to guide them in the implementation of the new ideas. Some of the contents of these kits were developed by our team members, and some of them are based on existing materials or using materials from other sources. We indicate always the sources of the materials but we also would like to make sure that the author of the original source is aware and accepts using his/her materials.
    For this reason I would like to ask you if we get your permission to use “How to build a dew catcher” ( for our education material.

    Yours sincerely,
    Florian Poehlein

    Please feel free to use any materials on this site for educational purposes. Tim and Nick collected a lot of background materials on atmospheric water collection, and it would be great if it was used by other students around the world. I hope your project goes very well!
