waterloop is a nonprofit raising awareness about water issues through podcast conversations with a diverse array of guests and a hyper-focus on solutions for a sustainable future.
Enough Negativity: The news on water is dominated by negative stories about pollution, problems, emergencies, a looming crisis, etc. The endless gloomy coverage feeds pessimism and distracts from education about positive developments, potential solutions, and success stories.
Raising Awareness: waterloop presents conversations about water through videos, podcasts, and social media. Greater understanding of the importance of water and options to increase sustainability improves stewardship, management, and support for projects and policies.
Spotlight on Solutions: There are many examples of uplifting projects and change-making people in water. waterloop shares these examples and highlights how challenges can be turned into opportunities for progress and provide models for others to follow.
waterloop is made possible in part by a grant from Spring Point Partners and by a grant from the Walton Family Foundation.
