«Water» - The elixir of life
Our first mission focused on the element that has made life on this planet possible: water. Water is humanity’s most valuable resource. Without water, we have nothing. However, we still do not appreciate water as the precious, dwindling resource it is. A resource that must be protected, managed responsibly and used conscientiously.
“Accelerating change” was the motto of the United Nations 2023 World Water Day. The UN Water Conference in New York saw the launch of a global action agenda, voluntarily endorsed by more than 700 governments, companies and NGOs; in addition, more than 50 of the world's largest companies issued an open appeal to the private sector to help solve the global water crisis. Everyone needs to get involved. And you can start right away.
