'I can arrive at a vision of a world in harmony with the the planet's life-giving water cycle. It's a world in which we'd see more rivers flowing like rivers flowing like rivers again, one in which farmers would use half as much water to provide nutritious diets to the world, and that treated and reused all of their process water. It's one in which ecological engineers would help communities rely on nature's solar powered infrastructure -wetlands, floodplains, and forested watersheds-to purify water, help control floods, and recharge groundwater, all while preserving habitats for fish and wildlife and beautiful places for people to enjoy. It's one in which the water productivities-the volume of water used to produce a dollar of gross national product-would be 10 times higher than it is today. Overall,it is one in which water management would be less about pipes, pumps and pouring concrete, and more about ideas, innovation, and ecological intelligence. This is the world most of us would want to live in, whereas the world we will create if current trends remain undeterred is not. The leap we need to get to this better place-to exit the pot of water-before it's too late must be big and bold. It will require that we shake up the old rules of the water game, created when water seemed abundant, maybe even inexhaustible, and replace them with new ones more aligned with the world of today. Pricing, markets, rights, regulations, incentives, legal constructs-all of these tools will need an overhaul for the leap big enough to get us out of the danger zone.' ~Sandra Postel

Though the main focus of this project/organization is water-all water issues, from ocean dead zones to drought- it also conver all enviornemental issues. So go ahead- add your projects on air pollution and the ozone layer. It all connects.
Each project made will be graded from 1 to 10. Once you have enough points, you can be promoted. (Initiate to member to advisor)
