About

The Santa Fe Water Awareness Group is the public networking group for all people and organizations interested in water and water issues locally and globally.

Vision: A world of clean, pure and healthy water available for all life systems to flourish; A world in which humans respect and steward the water resources of the planet and the life forms that inhabit and depend on these resources. Through our common agreement, commitment and action, humans restore the water systems to their pristine state through harmony with all the elements of Nature, wise management practices and education.

Water Planet

The Santa Fe Water Awareness Group is a broad alliance of people and groups who share the above vision. They meet once a month on every third Wednesday. The group is open to members of the public and organizations that hold a similar vision. We meet to share information, research and insights and to hear about the particular programs, projects and interests of those attending and to support each other in these ventures. The group is organizing a Santa Fe Global Water Festival under the umbrella of the Lorien Foundation, a New Mexico community non-profit, to be held around World Water Day, March 22nd, or in April around Earth day 2015 or 2016. For more information and a concept paper about the event, please visit the Santa Fe Global Water Festival page.

We are currently organizing towards opening a Santa Fe Global Water Resource Center in the Spring of 2014. Let is know if you would be interested in helping to develop this.

To be on our event mailing list and for more information, please email Raphael Weisman at Healingthescars@Gmail.com

  1. Water, women and girls in Uganda East Africa,
    Without safe water in their homes, many women and girls become victims of physical attack and sexual violence as they walk long distances to collect water; families are hit by frequent outbreaks of waterborne diseases such as cholera and dysentery because of sharing open water sources with animals; and girls dropout of school as they spend, on average, between 30 minutes to 90 minutes walking to look for water. Women and girls are the main providers of household water supply and sanitation in Uganda, and also have the primary responsibility for maintaining a clean home environment.

    We are working to end this by providing safe water to families affected by HIV/AIDS here http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/celebrate-water-give-a-gift-that-overflows
    Please support and share on your networks too.
