How It Works

 Water is one of the planet’s greatest gifts. We owe everything to the sun-powered water cycle – from the diversity of life to the water that sustains our families and economies.
Our use and management of water have disrupted critical parts of this cycle. We have depleted rivers, wetlands and groundwater reserves, creating uncertainty about our ability to meet the water, food and material needs of our growing population.
Water security depends on meeting the needs of both people and ecosystems. Success requires two things: shrinking our collective human water footprint and replenishing depleted rivers, streams and wetlands.
Here’s how Change the Course helps.
