|Case studies/Highlights||Water Explorer: Together with HSBC, GAP sets out to help 8-14 year olds tackle water issues. GAP has successfully empowered 140, 000 students from 11 countries to take bold and powerful action to save our precious water through fun, interactive water saving missions. Water Explorers across these 11 countries have completed 6, 000 challenges and engaged with their community 22 million times. Their efforts have saved: 7.5 million m3 of water, 96% of teachers report an increase in students’ understanding of local water issues, 21 million kgs of carbon, and 194 water festivals held.
Clean Air Day: Every year, GAP UK enables millions of people to protect themselves from, and reduce air pollution, starting with children. For this national event, we bring together hundreds of trusted charities, health institutions, corporations and local authorities together with a combined clean air message.

This course is geared towards individuals and businesses, which supports participants to set personal and professional goals and to set long-term aspirations for their future that align to their personal values.
