“Our planet’s health is our health” is at the core of our mission. In the mountains we can see the consequences of climate change on the environment and on communities.
Our collective action to save the World’s Water Towers will contribute to broader action on climate change and the risks associated with going beyond planetary health boundaries.

Our approach is to use the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 SDGs to; i. measure and understand the problem (analysis tool), and ii. translate the ‘problem’ described in i. into a networked, coordinated and collective solution using the 17 SDGs. This approaches connects poeple and supports action at individual — local community – national to global levels.
