The Clean Water Here Global Photography Exhibit, in accord with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural organization, opened at the Division of Water Sciences on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 in Paris. The exhibit featured 13 photographs from around the world that document what the lack of safe drinking water means knowing the water cycle in its entirety includes all uses and users.
The exhibit first debuted at the United Nations headquarters in New York City on UN World Water Day, March 22, 2018 in support of the Water Action Decade and promoted the idea that access to safe drinking water and sanitation are human rights – central to all people everywhere.
The Water Action Decade aims to put greater focus on the sustainable development and integrated management of water resources including cooperation and partnership at all levels to achieve agreed upon water-related goals and targets, including those contained in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
“We are honored to have our exhibit displayed at UNESCO and hope to educate as many people around the world about the challenges of extending universal access to safe drinking water,” said Lani Dolifka, creator of Clean Water Here.
Clean Water Here, a global movement with the mission to improve the world’s access to sustainable safe drinking water, launched a social media campaign to promote safe drinking water on UN World Water Day. The campaign including celebrity supporters Pitbull, Pink, Bruno Mars, Britney Spears, Maroon 5, Ed Sheeran, Seal, Kesha, Avril Levine, Andra Day, Ryan Seacrest, and others created a social media voice of over 700 million.
World-renowned photographers Martin Schoeller, Kristen Ashburn and Robert Clark selected photos for the exhibit.
