The question isn’t if we will run out of water.
It’s when - unless we change.
By 2030, we’ll face a 40% shortfall in the global supply of accessible, reliable water.
“If we do something about this, we’ll still be young enough to be able see the planet that we saved because we all pulled together and innovated to solve this water crisis.”
