Key benefits of Waterschools
  • 1
    Water and health

    Water is vital. Water makes up 60 to 70 percent of our weight and is essential for almost every function in our body. Opting for water rather than sweetened drinks hydrates without sugar or calories. There is still a worrying trend in overweight and obesity rates in European children and youth.

    Drinking water in schools is key to preventing obesity and fillings.

    Water and school performance

    Our brain is strongly influenced by hydration status. Losing as little as 1 to 3 percent of body’s water content can cause cognitive impairment, loss of concentration, tiredness and headaches. Staying hydrated is important for feeling energized and for proper brain performance.

    Waterschools promote adequate water-drinking.

Water is vital. If there is no water, there is no life.

Ample water consumption is absolutely necessary for maintaining optimal health and brain function. People usually meet their fluid needs by drinking when thirsty. But specially in schools, there is always a lot going on. That´s why pupils often forget to drink, even when they feel thirsty.

This is where the Erasmus+ project "WATERSCHOOLS" comes in. Pupils/students should be encouraged to drink enough healthy tap water in their everyday life at school.
