Introducing students with all the problems that are present in human society, and are related to water. This implies correct understanding of the use of water, its protection, and protection against its adverse impact.

Enable students to recognize in water not only a means to satisfy their needs, but also a friend to whom they should return to an equal measure. The intense need for water implies a complete understanding of all of its physical and chemical properties, circulations in nature and the laws under which it occurs, renews and participates in our life and economic activities. In accordance with the contemporary pace of life and the needs of people, a student must acquire a realistic picture of the water resources and the ultimate range of their exploitation. In order to achieve this, our consciousness must be ready to accept great disclaimers and investments in water, even when quick results are not visible. As a final outcome, it is also consistent with the consequences of irrational use of water or its spirited action.
