Hosted at Windward School, 11350 Palms Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90066

Bring science content to life with Water Planet Challenge Action Guides. These easy to use materials integrate service-learning and citizen journalism into your academics and provides students a comprehensive understanding of contemporary local water quality issues. Can students become community leaders to benefit the health of our water planet? Will you join the Water Planet Challenge?

EarthEcho International offers exciting, interactive workshops for middle and high school educators and their students. Rooted in service-learning and focused on action, these workshops examine how our every day actions make a difference, and how we can make sure the differences we make protect our water planet.

Register for this dynamic three-hour workshop and explore what comes OUT THE SPOUT, goes DOWN THE DRAIN, and youth citizen journalism strategies to enhance service-learning and academic outcomes.

We need to drink water. Does the water we choose to drink matter? Drinking water from local resources, even on the go, protects threatened global water resources, and protects us from potentially harmful chemicals. Worried there might be more coming out your spout than water? Bottled water is not the answer. Do we stop and think that everything we send down the drain—including products that wash off our bodies or pass through our bodies—can end up back in local waterways, the ocean, and our water supply? Why does knowing this matter? With our limited global water supply and current droughts, we do need to make every drop count.

Learn! Discover! Explore!

• Out the Spout—Learn why filtered tap water is always best; find out how you can become part of the Anti-Bottle movement that helps communities kick their plastic water bottle habit while raising money for water-related projects in their own backyard or across the globe.
• Down the Drain—Discover tools you can use to investigate what is going down your drain; develop and implement a plan to defend your drain (and others) from toxins.
• Citizen Journalism—Explore how multi-media documentation of the service-learning process enhances student achievement and gives youth a voice in protecting the environment as citizen journalists.
