SDG 6 - Clean water and sanitation

Although most of the earth is covered in water, only 1% is fit for human consumption. With a growing population and increased industrial activity, it is essential that we make efforts to protect our water supply and avoid excessive use.

At LJMU, we’re making efforts to address our water usage by installing efficient water dispensers, harvesting rainwater and using low-flush toilets in our buildings across campuses. Locally, we are promoting sustainable energy on Hilbre Island and internationally we are proud to champion the voices of islanders in the Philippines through documentaries shared at the United Nations World Ocean’s Day.

Key statistics
