The club will also host panel discussions to engage, educate and train attendees on environment sustainability among other activities.
Besides working with Aquavita, Daystar Environmental Club has done a number of environmental sustainability practices.

Professor Laban Ayiro , the Vice-Chancellor, of Daystar University said, “By engaging University students in simple efforts which make a difference to the environment, Green Week will impact future leadership with practical ideas to conserve the environment which can be scaled up in future.”
With the understanding of how important hydration is in the educational sector, Aquavita has provided Daystar with eco-friendly, safe, and cost-effective drinking water solutions. The solution entails connecting water purification units to the portable water system at Daystar. The water is then taken through a set of filters to eliminate any physical, chemical or biological content that may be harmful. It is then put through an ultra-violet purification process before being dispensed as either hot, cold or room temperature. “The Aquavita solution has eliminated the need to use plastic water bottles to provide access to drinking water at Daystar,” said Professor Laban Ayiro “we are grateful for this partnership and are happy about the impact the partnership has had on the environment thus far”
