#RUNNINGDRY

Starting at the New York City Marathon on the 4th November 2018 and ending 100 marathons around the world later, #RunningDry is a call to each of us to save water and to join together to change the way that we all use, consume and think about water.

THE REASON

Our planet’s water resources are under extreme stress. Experts predict that by 2030 our demand for water will be 40% greater than the supplies available. We are literally #RunningDry.

We can’t continue like this. We owe the next generation a better planet. We need to act: now.

THE MESSAGE

Each one of us has the power to help solve our world’s water crisis. Whether it’s turning off the tap when we brush our teeth, reducing our food waste, or innovating new ways to save water, every action matters and every drop counts. Individually we can make an impact. Together we can change the world.

THE AIM

We want to make saving water famous. To create a global community of water-conscious citizens who care about water, and are willing to act to avert the global water crisis.

We need to make saving water not just the right thing to do, but the only thing to do.

PLEASE SHARE OUR STORY

The more people that know about the global water crisis, the more people who care about water, the greater the changes we can make. The most important thing you can do to support Mina on this journey is to join our community and share our story.
