The question isn't if we will run out of water. It's when.
Unless we change.

Through my work with the World Bank and the World Economic Forum, I came to learn about the planet's unfolding water crisis: by 2030, we face a 40% shortfall in the global supply of accessible, reliable water. 

I have since dedicated my life to educating leaders and young people alike about this crisis and how we can solve it.

I run expeditions to draw global media attention to the water crisis and tell the amazing stories of people around the world living with water scarcity.

In 2012, I founded Thirst, an organization that has educated hundreds of thousands of young people in China about their water footprints.


I run for every person that uses water.

I want every single person on the planet to be able to realize their aspirations.
Without a reliable water supply, that is not possible.
