The Global Water School will make available proven, local wisdom to resolve floods and droughts and regenerate healthy catchments. It will uncover, film and record successful community driven, decentralised water conservation methods in a language neutral format.
Catchment based software, using credible regional satellite data for forecasting and indicating catchment health as well as interactive catchment maps will be created in community friendly formats. These will be available online and offline as a unique open resource tool for communities and villages across the world to access, crossing a multitude of divides (including literacy and language) that typically separate communities from research and practical solutions.
Access to the research, successful methods and knowledge will enable people to take action themselves to revive their local water bodies, recharge their water tables/aquifers and “achieve equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water”. We see this as crowd sourcing the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), with a special emphasis on SDG6 - Clean Water and Sanitation for All.
