Mizuiku Family Workshop: Eco Detectives


Come and join us by the banks of the river!

Families with children aged 5-10 years are invited to come along and meet our friendly team at this wonderful location by the banks for the river.

In this two hour ‘Eco Detectives’ workshop you will:

  • Be a river scientist, have a go at testing water quality
  • Investigate how we can reduce pollution and save precious water
  • Try out water marbling art (Suminagashi) to learn what happens when oil spills on water

These events are free of charge to families. However, spaces are limited so if you need to cancel your tickets, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can reallocate your place to another participant.

Workshops are best suited to children 5-10, but younger and older siblings are very welcome to join in.

All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult, who will supervise them closely during activities. Maximum of 4 children per adult.

About Mizuiku

We are delighted to be running these activities free of charge for families thanks to an exciting collaboration with Suntory Beverage & Food Great Britain & Ireland (SBF GB&I) – owner of Lucozade and Ribena. With these workshops we are expanding Suntory’s water education programme in the UK. Known as the ‘Mizuiku’ programme, “mizu” means water, and “iku” means education in Japanese, and reflects the importance of learning about and caring for water. This is the perfect partnership for sharing the message about the importance of water conservation.
