Happiness: the Tribute 21 Plate Challenge

Competition Details

Water Cycle: For Life.

by Arlene Birt

To build happiness requires a common understanding of that which is essential to life.

The design of this plate tells a positive story of water use, and is a storytelling tool to educate children on the principles of the water cycle: flow, evaporation and precipitation.

Clean water is a necessity for all life on earth. The story on the plate is a reminder to those of us in the developed world that water comes from, and returns to, nature; and that people, plants and animals around the world all depend upon clean water to live and prosper.

Children can immerse themselves in this illustrative story of water as it surrounds their food, and imagine a world where water use is in perfect balance.

The text around the edge of the plate reads “Water. For Life.”
