Marcia Davies, Community Education Manager from Anglian Water said:” We are delighted to be able to sponsor the Peterborough STEM festival this year alongside the @one Alliance. Events like these are really important as they give children and adults a chance to think about the different science and engineering skills it takes for us to provide clean, safe drinking water to our customers as well as remove and clean their waste water.
“Water is a precious natural resource; vital to life, key to a sustainable and vibrant economy, and essential for a flourishing environment. It’s used for everything from drinking and growing crops to swimming and making shoes. So it’s no wonder that a ready supply of clean, safe drinking water is one of the most pressing global challenges of our time. Being the driest part of the UK as well as facing issues like climate change and a growing population means that we need to act now to meet the needs of a changing world in the future, and we’re going to need future generations to help us.
“This is why we we’re so passionate about working with local communities to inspire children about how they can influence this future through science, technology, engineering and their future careers. To help us keep taps running now and in the future.”
