Our relationship with water is a complicated one.

To serve generations to come, we must transform the way we value water – monetarily, emotionally, and societally. We must embed a new water ethos into our culture and change the conversation around this most precious element.

Water Anthology Press is an imprint of The Water Innovation Project, LLC: an idea lab, consultancy, and leadership hub with a mission to transform the way we value water through innovation and collaboration. This book is one project to help address the question: How do we manage our relationship with water and change the conversation?
