Launched in 2015, World Ocean Forum
is an active forum of opinion, ideas, and proposals for change in ocean policy and action worldwide. It addresses fresh ideas and new solutions, provides serious, provocative, and imaginative conversations about the future of the ocean, and links unexpected people with unexpected ideas. The latest World Ocean Forum concept is a compilation of key ocean voices from the Copenhagen climate summit (COP15) contributing to a conversation about climate and ocean.
One in eleven people in the world lack access to the most basic of human needs: fresh water. It is the thing that we all need in equal amount each day for our survival. CHARITY: WATER
is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. They are using private donations, foundation funding, and sponsorships to develop programs and technologies for dug wells, rainwater catchment, gravity fed systems, water purification processes, and sanitation management to bring fresh, clean water to the more than 663 million people in the world that live without access to clean water.
