Water appears in a cycle, the water cycle. In the water cycle, water is present as clouds, rain, soil moisture, streams and rivers, groundwater, lakes, seas and oceans. Water connects many if not all of Earth´s systems. It connects species and ecosystems, rivers with lakes, mountains to seas, earth to the sky, and also us, people, to the entire Earth system. Understanding this will help trigger action for more sustainable water use.

The issue:

Water is so fundamental to our lives, our societies and our economies, that paradoxally, it is often forgotten. Many people and organisations do not really grasp that their activities and life are often fully dependent on the water cycle. This results in a continued increase of water use and water pollution leading to water scarcity and degradation of many of the Earth´s watersheds.

How we work:

In all our projects, we help our customers and stakeholders get an increased understanding of water so that they may get more engaged on water and more able to act for sustainable water use. We address, for example: how water appears in and moves through the water cycle; how it is geographically distributed and moves through the watersheds; how understanding the water cycle helps to understand other fundamental natural cycles like the Carbon and Nitrogen cycles. We use our wide expertise and experience in lecturing, workshops and trainings on water, water footprint and water sustainabability. For our trainings, we tranform complex technical data and information to easy to understand language and graphics. In addition to the technical side, we always include in our trainings a very practical and applied approach to concepts and tools.
