Our Programmes/our work:
What we are doing and why

SCOPE

We create wisdom and action stemming from the organization of information on water. We only touch upon areas where water is arguably a primary driver or central portion of the situation. We seek to cover every single bit of knowledge where humans have an interest in water as we feel this in of itself is extremely valuable for our children. This is our scope.

RATIONALE

Water and our relationship to it is arguably the fundamental driver of the human condition. Whereas it has been suggested that we are in a time of great world crisis because of the condition of water and our relationship with it, and it has been suggested to become the source of the majority of wars this century, and is the primary cause of death in children around the world, and the primary cause of disease in humanbeings; our understanding of water and wise caretaking of it represents our greatest hopes as water itself presents what is perhaps the single greatest opportunity to act as a universal uniter of mankind. We argue that what we do with water over the next 25 years literally will either prove to be the salvation of the human legacy for generations to come or the demise of a living planet and prosperous living humanity.  We are finding ways to harness and direct social forces, media forces, and market forces to direct human resources and attention towards protecting our planet and increasing our quality of life in what is arguably the most powerful way possible by investing in water.

VISION

Creating the language that will inspire individuals, families, institutions, states, and mankind to lead more enlightened lives and unleash their resources in the direction to:

  1. eliminate poverty,
  2. dramatically increase availability of education and related opportunity,
  3. eliminate hunger,
  4. increase peace on the planet, 
  5. protect our natural legacy of beauty that replenishes our soul,
  6. discover the mysteries of nature as yet undiscovered that can explonentially increase our quality of life,
  7. increase cohesion and sustainability of our geoeconomic system,
  8. foster struggling democracy to become effective resources affecting the lives of billions of individuals, reduce institutional corruption,
  9. create clean and essentially unlimited sources of power for mankind, to support making better public policy decisions.

Our task is the creation of this language. This language has multiple components including verbal, linguistic, artistic, scientific, academic, performance, public policy, space media
Our language does 2 things: increases human connection with water and reveals water wherever its actions are not apparent.

My soul is full of longing
For the secret of the Sea,
And the heart of the great ocean
Sends a thrilling pulse through me.
