The Swarovski Waterschool program in Brazil aims to preserve Amazon habitats, raise awareness of the importance of water conservation, and train students and teachers to take the activities to other schools and communities. The workshop module approach of this program engages children in hands-on solutions to local water issues. The program seeks to strengthen behavior change and values related to water, encourage the sharing of experiences with schools and civil society, and inspire practical and sustainable local actions to preserve and protect waterways and riverside communities.
