A crash course in changing the world.

2.5 billion people world wide has no access of water and toilets and a lots of children die was water illness.

So, the day we're waiting for is finally come. In this day I imagine that I will tell everyone the importance of water security. I will tell people every bad thing that will happen if this problem occur, because the person that get impact from this issue is not only the poor people but also the rich people. For example, if this problem happen poor people will do everything to keep themselves and their family survive, Even if they need to kill rich people to get access to clean water. Using…Continue

My inspiring water project is Water For People. Their main mission is to treat people equally and giving them clean and save water.

Where I was watching water for people there's this guy who really inspire me. Ned Breslin, he is the CEO of water for people, he made a water pump…Continue

The DaVinci project reroutes storm water runoff from roofs and parking lots, into cisterns and a 7,200 square foot water garden, and was designed and built by the students, teachers and parents of this school. The system includes a system of cisterns, pond, constructed wetland, and bioremediation swale that collects, cleans…Continue

Every German uses about 162 litre of water during the day. That means depicted a filled bathtub. One single toilet flush in the industrialised countries consumes as much water as one person in a developing country has at his/her disposal for washing, drinking and cooking per day. So this facts put me in a refelctive mood. One way of responding to this could be the use of special water-saving toilets and showers, repair of seals and use of rainwater could be only some small improvements.…Continue

If I have to imagine about 'Happy World Water Day 2020' I see a big event around the globe. I would like to suggest that similar activities are happening at the same day to the same time on every continent. That means at least 7 and not exceeding 14 events (=2 for one continent).
First of all famous people are needed who support this event. At all locations there would be a big concert which is free of cost for everyone. Participants need only to take over a…

More than 16 years ago my uncle emigrated to Spain. He is now living on a big finca (estate/ parcel of land) together with his family, friends and animals. They are trying to find a harmonic way of living in nature. When I read this week's mission, I instantly thought of Jochen, a friend of my uncle who is living on this "farm" since a few years. Last year he had the idea of creating a system of hollows where he wants to save rainwater. With the collected water they want to supply the…Continue

Water.org Projects has a very effective way of approach this problem. They dont only choose to help out much needed areas by simply providing them with clean water, but also educate the residence in the certain area about how to keep water clean and how to properly operate the water systems. Educating people is always one of the most effective steps to solving problems like these.
