Unitywater Executive Manager Strategic Engagement, Joshua Zugajev, said the program had been an excellent way to engage and connect with primary school students about water efficiency.

Unitywater has partnered with The Water Conservancy, and theatre group Gibber Education to deliver this program.

CEO of The Water Conservancy, Chris Philpot, said that the ‘Walter Smart and Friends’ initiative started out as a collection of social media character, designed to inspire water efficient behaviour among young Australians.

Director of Gibber Educational, Vicky Blackburn, said Gibber Educational helps businesses and industries achieve a positive change in attitude and behaviour through innovative drama-based training.

The program is running again in North Lakes, Narangba, and Dayboro from Monday October 21 Friday October 25.
