Windsor – ENWIN Utilities Ltd. (ENWIN) announced a proud partnership with Essex Region Conservation today to support an educational program delivered in a fun and informative presentation to primary students (K-4) across Windsor-Essex.
“We are so grateful to ENWIN Utilities for their incredibly generous partnership which allows us to deliver the Earth Day Travelling Road Show to 4,000 students across the region,” said Susan Stockwell Andrews, President of the Essex Region Conservation Foundation.
During the show, students were introduced to larger-than-life characters, sang songs and participated in a variety of demonstrations in an engaging 50-minute presentation that will be delivered to schools throughout this week. Through interactive discussion, students learned about ways they can make every day Earth Day, through the choices they make. Students also learned how water and electricity is delivered to their homes by their local utility, ENWIN.
“ENWIN has also created a Conservation Detectives activity, during which students watched an ENWIN-produced video featuring young people using water and electricity in their home,” explained Barbara Peirce Marshall, Manager of Corporate Communications & Public Relations. “As conservation detectives, students were asked to detect and correct missed opportunities to conserve water and electricity. Not only did they understand the impact that their choices make, they showed real enthusiasm for doing their part to conserve water and electricity.”
Students from Dr. David Suzuki Public School remarked “I learned that it’s important to turn off your faucets, because we only have 3% of water that we can actually drink! Most of it is ice, and we can’t drink that.” Another student added “Only use the amount of light that you need, because there is light outside that you can use too.”
