Poster Art to Spread the Clean-Water Word
To raise awareness about the global water crisis, students from around the world submitted designs for the Water is Life poster-art contest. The winning designs are so inspiring that they're going to be part of a globe-trotting museum exhibit.
The posters are meant to spread the word about Stockholm’s annual World Water Week, a global summit that aims to focus the world's attention on the challenge of water management (as things are now, only one in eight people has access to clean water).This year, the summit happens next week: Aug. 21 to 27.
While the summit itself is primarily for environmental leaders, we all can get involved. How? Read a book, watch a movie, or learn more on the web. Or buy a “Water is Life” poster to spread inspiration. You can also watch live broadcasts from the Stockholm summit.
