Under the Friends of Water initiative, activities, programmes and resources have been carefully designed by PUB, the national water agency, to encourage community involvement for the water cause!
Parents and EC educators can look forward to enlighten young children on various water-related topics through fun activities to learn more about our water cycle, water saving tips, keeping our water clean and making mini raingardens!

Singapore World Water Day
World Water Day is a day designated by the United Nations to celebrate the importance of water sustainability. Here in Singapore, we too commemorate this special occasion by encouraging the community to participate or organise activities throughout March to reinforce the importance of adopting the 5 water saving habits:
Take shorter showers
Use a reduced flush
Use a mug to brush teeth
Use water-efficient washing machine
Wash in a filled sink
Everyone is welcomed to celebrate Singapore World Water Day in their own way. Together, let’s make every drop of water count.
Be inspired by some activities led by our water champions below!
Preschools conducted home visits to share the water saving tips with the residents.
Children experienced a day of “water shortage” to understand the importance of water conservation and appreciate our readily available water supply.
One of the major pre-school operators organised a water-themed carnival where parents and preschoolers can have fun in various activities such as one at this station where they removed “rubbish” from the water which reinforce the importance of keeping our water spaces clean!
Preschool teachers can also read stories on water conservation to the children to remind them on adopting the water saving habits.
