The fourth annual World Water Week wrapped up at Chief Sealth International High School on Friday. Teacher Noah Zeichner sent word of just one of the aspects that again made it a “world” event:

The Global Leadership class at Chief Sealth IHS hosted a group from India who are in Seattle as part of the International Visitor Leadership Program. This three-week U.S. Department of State-sponsored project for five participants from India will provide an increased understanding of the milestones that various ethnic and religious groups have achieved and the challenges such groups continue to face.

The students discussed water related issues with the visitors including fresh-water scarcity and water pollution.

Plastic pollution was the main theme for this year’s World Water Week at Sealth.
