Drink The Water

Saturday 1 April

See the Workshop report here

Water is one of our most precious resources, and currently under enormous stress (even in the rainy UK). Where will we get our drinking water, once climate change starts to hit? Hint: probably not in plastic bottles from the French Alps.

This workshop will teach you how to build a working water filter from easily sourced, abundant materials. The workshop will be led by Ariana Jordao, from the Centre for Alternative Technology, in Wales. Ariana will discuss the science behind clean water and the process CAT goes through to get water at their site (which is entirely off-grid). We'll then have a practical lesson, so you can go away and filter your own.

CAT have been experimenting with sustainable living in an a disused slate quarry in Wales for over 40 years. They know a thing or two about preparing for the future.
