  • Awareness

    Learn about the current global water crisis, just like you are doing right now. The more you understand a problem, the better positioned you will be to contribute to the solution. Engage in active dialogue with family, friends and colleagues. Constantly be aware of news and facts on water shortages and crisis areas, but equally as important, solutions and technologies that are part of the solution.

  • Take Part

    Join organizations that aim to preserve and defend natural resources including water. Consider donating your time and/or money with water organizations and be sure to spread the message of your participation.

  • Use Water Wisely

    Never assume that your society is too advanced to experience water shortage. It’s imperative that each of us as individuals take ownership in our attitude towards water. Turn the tap off when not in use. Minimize the flushing of toilets and bath times. Fix leaks and other water waste around your home. Most importantly, assess yourself.

  • Industries and Governments

    Join pressure groups that prevent individuals, industries and governments from influencing the environment in a harmful way. It’s important to be heard, so reach out to your local government official and share your passion of contributing to the problem. They want to hear from you!
