Together we will create the space for meaningful connections about how our watercourse flows, working together to drive positive change, just like the trees absorb water to process the oxygen we need to breathe.
Together we will shape the narrative as partners in excellence, making every connection matter, like a ripple effect in the water.
All forms of living things need water to survive.
General Practitioners are as valuable as water.
Trees ~ absorbing water is critical to the process of Photosynthesis, which contributes to the oxygen we need to breathe.
Humans ~ the average body of an adult human being contains over 70% water. Most of the water in the human body is contained inside our cells which is two-thirds of the water you drink. Our cells must have water to live.
Course ~ Watercourse/Study course.
The importance of a droplet: A droplet of water can form with many others to become a puddle; a puddle with connections becomes a brook; a brook with more droplets can become a calm creek; a creek with more water becomes a flowing stream; a gentle trickle of a stream connects to a larger course of the river; the rivers course connects to the sea which surrounds the whole world.
Dark blue circles ~ Waves/Ripples.
When we are great, we inspire others to be great and it creates a ripple effect that spreads outwards. Just as a pebble creates waves when dropped in a pond; acts of greatness ripple outwards, touching others’ lives and inspiring greatness everywhere the wave goes.
Background ~ Ocean/Water.
Whether it be the size of the ocean or as small as a stream, as deep as the deepest seas, or as shallow as a brook. Water can flow as rough as a storm in the ocean or as calm as a creek. The colour being murky or clear and everything in between. It can flow freely and easily, it all depends on the surrounding elements, structure and sometimes obstacles in or on its course.
Light blue design on the left ~ Tree Stump.
This pattern represents nature. Trees link local to regional and global water cycles through their modification of infiltration, water use, hydraulic redistribution of soil water and their roles in rainfall recycling. Nature-based water management is complemented by technical interventions for water retention, redistribution, flow regulation and recycling. It is generally more resilient and adaptive than concrete and steel structures. Our trees provide us with a myriad of benefits, but none more critical to life than the way they interact with water. Trees collect and absorb water through branches, leaves, and roots, releasing it slowly to the surrounding environment. This allows the water table to recharge, providing water for other plants nearby and preventing erosion along stream edges and riverbanks. Absorbed water is critical to the process of Photosynthesis, which contributes the oxygen we need to breathe.
Blue design on the right ~ Human Thumbprint.
This patern represents people. The total amount of water in our body is in three main locations: Within our cells (two-thirds of the water), in the space between our cells, and our blood (one-third of the water). All our vital organs contain different amounts of water. The brain, lungs, heart, liver and kidneys contain a large quantity of water – between 65% to 85% depending on the organ. Bones contain less water, about 30%. Water travels through your oesophagus which is a small pipe connected to the mouth and lands in the stomach. This is where the process of water absorption to the bloodstream begins. The small intestine, at around 20 feet long, efficiently absorbs water into the cell membrane and bloodstream. From here, water will travel to cells across the body, providing them with the hydration to perform daily functions efficiently. Water is sent to the brain where it provides hydration to brain cells and is used to maintain certain cerebral functions. Without the appropriate level of hydration, studies have shown that people experience impaired short-term memory function and visual motor skills. Drinking water is very important to maintain a healthy body.
