Gravity Water- Combatting the World Water Crisis

Meg de Vries, currently works for a nonprofit organization called Gravity Water. Their mission is to provide poverty-stricken schools in developing countries on-site access to clean water through a brand-new approach that combines rainwater harvesting, elevated storage, and 100% energy-free filtration. Over the last two years, they have been working with US-based schools to create a platform called the Gravity Water Youth Initiative. The mission of this initiative is to empower youth worldwide to become active players helping to resolve the world water crisis, while simultaneously promoting cultural competence, global citizenship, and youth leadership. 


She will speak about what Gravity Water does and how they work with local communities to combat the World Water Crisis.
