THIS GIVING TUESDAY, we invite you to multiply your impact by giving to volunteer-led initiatives, organized by Global Water Works members. We're supporting the World of Water Team harvesting rainwater in schools, expanding Lake County Lake Lovers and educating the next generation. Global Water Works connects water experts, businesses, and technologies to provide solutions for water issues around the world.

challenges related to quality water scarcity and pollution, the need for skilled and visionary leaders in the water sector has never been more critical. Recruiting the next generation of leaders into water careers is essential for ensuring sustainable water management and addressing the complex issues that lie ahead. THIS WEEK’S POLL Which of the following would be most effective in attracting the Next Generation of leaders to the water industry?


  • Educational program in schools focused on water science and conservation – 37%

  • Engaging social media campaigns promoting the importance of water conservation – 0%

  • Interactive community and virtual events showcasing water related innovation and technology – 0%

  • Collaborative projects between businesses and schools to address local water challenges – 25%

  • Other, please comment – 37%

This week’s poll generated a lot of discussion. Most felt that all these items were important, but also that existing water professionals need to be active in mentoring the next generation of talent. Also, existing leadership needs to step up with existing and new technologies. And adding water industry vocational content in schools, including water issues on social media, in businesses and the community would help to attract the next generation as well.
