    Not oil, not gas and not gold will determine the political, economic and social development of nations around the world in the future, but access to a constant supply of clean water.

    Students from all continents of the world are encouraged to make a creative statement supporting a responsible approach to managing water. Become part of an international art movement dedicated to ensuring and maintaining the ongoing clean supply of the most important source of sustenance for mankind.
