During our worldwide weekly online encounter we developed a dialogue around extreme heat waves and temperature changes that people have been suffering recently. We commented on the impact on our current global processes in agricultures, cities, infrastructures, pollution, etc. And that people take water easily for granted. We need 2 liters every day for our health but use more that 50x that amount per person. Recognizing drinking water as a core human value for sustainable health and human progress is a commonly shared responsability. No institution, no matter how expert, can cope with the overall water and health responsibility alone. Only together we can.
We decided to take on the experimental responsibility to try to connect all relevant parties by inviting them to the table (citizens, goverments, water boards, science, education, entrepreneurship). One of participants, an American author and song writer with her own channel on YouTube, got instantly inspired. She shared this message and song with is all, just a few hours after our online encounter.
