Growing Blue

Growing Blue

Growing Blue was created to tell the important story of how water is as essential to our economic and social growth as it is to ensuring healthy ecosystems and our natural environment.This site is meant to serve as a resource for credible, accurate information on water. It is also aimed at increasing global awareness of our water challenges and the need for thoughtful solutions. In that regard, we hope Growing Blue is a catalyst and platform for dialogue on this important topic. Water is one of the most critical factors in determining how and at what pace our world can support humanity’s continued growth. That story needs to be told with a greater voice and to a broader audience, now and in the future.
