Task 5 Sustainability Goals


Our next task is related to Clean Water and Sanitation.

When scouts are out on activities like hiking or camping, they have to carefully plan for having enough water with them, or being able to access clean water. For others around the world, they face these challenges on a daily basis.

See https://betterworld.ie/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/SDG-6-Make-a-Water-Filter.pdf
