One Water

About This Collection

One Water

The international observance of World Water Day is an initiative that grew out of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de JaWorld Water Dayneiro. It inspired the creation of our EarthSayers special collection around the idea of "One Water." It addresses a wide range of issues including, but not limited to water supply, security, rights, and pollution.

The organization, One Water, puts the challenge succinctly: "Providing clean and safe water to everybody around the world is among the greatest challenges facing us today." Two other organizations asking for support are charity:water and water.org.

EarthSayers.tv Special Collection 1 Water

Originally created around World Water Day, this collection continues to grow with leaders from all walks of life who see the need to recognize the concept of One Water.  This includes Alexandra Cousteau, a globally recognized advocate on water quality and policy, who continues the work of her renowned grandfather Jacques-Yves Cousteau and her father Philippe Cousteau, Sr.

In 2008, she founded Blue Legacy International, a not-for-profit project of The Ocean Foundation.  This  speech is part of a TEDx series.
