Berlin, August 17, 2022 – 2.2 billion people worldwide do not have assured access to clean drinking water. About 785 million of them even lack basic water supply. Yet, water is the basis of all life and a fundamental human right. Sharing Viva con Agua’s vision of access to clean drinking water, hygiene facilities and basic sanitary provision for all people, aware_ is pleased to have won the non-profit organization as a charity partner for the aware_ Academy.
With Viva con Agua, the Berlin-based start-up offers its speakers the opportunity to donate part or all of their expense allowance as part of the aware_ Academy.
“Positive and joyful activism is key for Viva con Agua. We strongly encourage creative ways of supporting us and our vision of water for all. Therefore, we are grateful for the support of the aware_ Academy.“ – Carolin Stüdemann, Executive Board at Viva con Agua
In addition, Carolin Stüdemann, Executive Board at Viva con Agua, is part of the aware_ Academy as speaker of the Masterclass Social Entrepreneurship & SDGs. In the Masterclass, the expert will address how environmental issues and the social aspect intersect.
