What's it about?

It goes without saying that water is one of the most important substances—it cover 71 percent of the globe and about 60 percent of an adult human body is made out of water. So it's indisputable that without water, there would be no life on Earth. Yet, we take it for granted and are slow to respond to the very real threat of freshwater scarcity. In this collection, you’ll learn about water in its different forms, the impact climate change has on freshwater supplies, and how water has been used as a conduit for global inequality.
