UNESCO Futures of Education Initiative:
Zero Water Day Partnership

Purpose

We are reimagining how learning can influence human and global systems through guided support and international collaboration from UNESCO's Futures of Education Initiative. Students participated in the University of Glasgow's Sattellite Conference for COP26.

Gunnison Watershed

The headwaters of the Gunnison River is a water tower of the world, contributing to the Colorado River Basin and providing water for the southwestern United States and Mexico. The Gunnison Watershed School District is honored to represent our region in this project.
