In conjunction with UPLIFT Festival this weekend in Byron, Australia, Water Defense has released a video and an invitation for your input. Collaboration often takes a back-seat in world focused on competition but it is the best solution to problems that face us all. When organizations and individuals shift from competing with one another to assisting each other towards a common goal, miracles can happen. Our waters are threatened all over the world, we have a common enemy and it is ignorance. We don’t know what is in our water. Due to decades of contamination from both agricultural pesticides and industrial waste, our watersheds are not as healthy as they once were. Since water is one thing that we all share in common, together we can address this problem and learn how to collaborate along the way. Contemporary technology, social networks, and inspiration are the tools we need to ignite this collaborative power. Water Defense is ready to deliver!
The real power of protecting our water is knowing what’s in it, and that’s exactly what we are going to do.” -Mark Ruffalo
This collaboration involves The Herbert W Hoover Foundation, Unify, and Uplift Connect along with Water Defense and many other organizations/individuals who are concerned about the health of our waters. If you have any ideas, questions, or suggestions, please tweet them with the hashtag #lovewater and be part of the ongoing conversation. You can learn more about the project here and here.
