Water Hour

Are you concerned about the coming water crisis? Here's an exciting opportunity to take awareness-raising and action to a new level. Water Hour, 8PM local time on June 11th is a moment in time for a celebration, a torrent of messages, an outburst of action for water! Water Hour takes a whole new approach: we must leave fear and guilt behind, reconnect with the awe and wonder of water in our lives, and create positive change from a positive place. It's about falling in love with water...all over again. This event taps into the enormous power of social networks like Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and Youtube, allowing us to join together across the globe to create something wonderful. You can participate right now.
