Its purpose is to support the sustainability goals SDG6 of the United Nations, clean water and sanitation, through a global think tank of scientists and entrepreneurs to make water issues known to a broad public, and sustain aid projects with their donations.

Since although the earth is 71 percent covered by water, 97 percent of it is salt water. Only one percent of the world’s water supplies is available as drinking water. Drinking water is scarce and extremely unevenly distributed. With resolution 64/292 in 2010, the UN General Assembly recognized access to clean water as a human right.

Questions about Water?

The surface of our blue planet Earth is two-thirds covered with water. But more than 97% of the Earth’s total water is saltwater and only 2.5% freshwater. In turn, two-thirds of the fresh- water is ice at the poles and therefore not accessible to us as drinking water. Thus, just one third of the world’s fresh water supply is available to us as drinking water, which is 0.83%.

Water shortage is one of our biggest problems on earth. The supply of fresh water on the earth does not increase. In addition, stocks are distributed unevenly on the globe. Even today, over one billion people have no access to clean drinking water. While water scarcity has long been a problem in North Africa and the Middle East, there are also signs of a lack of drinking water in Europe (eg Spain and Italy), which will continue to increase in the next 15 years
