In 2018, ACT became the South African implementing agent for the International Water Explorer Programme, an online fun, inspiring and educational programme that empowers students to lead joint action on water issues.
The international programme, supported by Global Action Plan UK and funded by the HSBC Water Programme, was started in 2014. It enables schools to earn points as they complete a variety of water challenges which ‘fill up’ a virtual online reservoir. Through their efforts to manage their water more wisely they stand to win many appropriate prizes to assist them in achieving their water goals. The programme is currently being implemented in 11 countries and all challenges are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development goals.
