Blue Legacy International: All Water Issues are Interconnected
Every Monday we profile a Dow Live Earth Run for Water partner organization that works toward providing solutions to the nearly 1 billion people who lack access to clean, safe water. To donate to one of these projects, visit liveearth.org/give.
Blue Legacy International was founded in late 2008 by Alexandra Cousteau to “tell the story of our Water Planet and shape society’s dialogue to include water as one of the defining issues of our century by illustrating the interconnectedness of all water issues.” A non-profit organization Blue Legacy develops and distributes traditional and new media projects that inspire people to take action on critical water issues in meaningful ways.
In it’s first full year of operation, Blue Legacy turned heads in film and advocacy circles when it launched a 100-day global exploration of critical water issues that paired the Cousteau tradition of expeditionary storytelling with innovative social media techniques to engage a global audience and draw mainstream individuals into a focused conversation on the human experience of water’s interconnectivity.
