Recreational and educational workshops at EXPO to understand the water cycle, its role in the balance of our planet and the importance of a proper hydration for our wellness.

From August 3 to 10, the Group Sanpellegrino organizes for children aged 6-12 years and their parents educational workshops, aimed to help them understand the water cycle, its role in the balance of our planet, in the life of each of us and the importance of a proper hydration for a healthy body. Each workshop lasts approximately 30 minutes and is repeated six times a day at the "Vivaio Scuola", a place dedicated to school children on the third floor of the Italian Pavilion.

"You learn how to protect water at school" is the fundamental concept that inspire the initiative WET - Water Education for Teachers - an international project sponsored by Sanpellegrino in Italy with the aim of educating children to the responsible management of water resources. Now that is summertime, EXPO Milan, the ultimate speaking platform about the major sustainability issues, hosts during the month dedicated to WATER RESOURCE the workshop WET, sponsored by Sanpellegrino Group, Official Water Partner of Expo Milano 2015 and Italian Pavilion with the historical brand S. Pellegrino.

A video tutorial will explain children in a simple and fun way the ratio of land and water on the surface of the planet, the importance of this resource for life, describing the water cycle, evaporation and condensation. The entertainers will involve participants in a kind of “game of the goose” with dice, where children will be the pawns, in other words water molecules that travel the places of their continuous journey on earth, from rivers to ocean, from clouds to the earth, from animals to men. In each stage, the children collect a bead that will compose a colorful bracelet to remind them of all the places this valuable resource passes through.
