Shortly after becoming a mother, Lindsey Andrews encountered a problem with childrens literature. While reading about rainbows and princesses was fun, Lindsey sought out literature that encouraged her children to engage their world, address social issues and help form solutions. After a trip to Ethiopia, she encountered a boy whose daily walk for water inspired Lindsey to tell her children, who were two and six at the time, about the global water crisis. They both were eager to help and through sponsorship and advocacy, this youg boy and his family now have access to clean water. The experience inspired "I Walk for Water," a children's book dedicated to those who daily trek to water and encourages the reader to help engage and bring change, with a portion of each book benefiting Water is Life, a non-profit nown internationally for its ability to provide life giving water solutions. Illustrated by Jerry Bennett, world renowned illustrator and scribble, "I Walk For Water" had a storyboard and went tonto print. Soon, "I Walk for Water" will become a documentary. Written, directed and filmed by the gorgeously talented, Lauren Selmon Roberts of "Rainbow Town" documentary fame. The film is tentatively scheduled to release in 2012.

Chasing Water

A Guide for Moving from Scarcity to Sustainability

Water scarcity is spreading and intensifying in many regions of the world, with dire consequences for local communities, economies, and freshwater ecosystems. Current approaches tend to rely on policies crafted at the state or national level, which on their own have proved insufficient to arrest water scarcity. To be durable and effective, water plans must be informed by the culture, economics, and varied needs of affected community members. International water expert Brian Richter argues that sustainable water sharing in the twenty-first century can only happen through open, democratic dialogue and local collective action. In Chasing Water, Richter tells a cohesive and complete story of water scarcity: where it is happening, what is causing it, and how it can be addressed. Through his engaging and nontechnical style, he strips away the complexities of water management to its bare essentials, providing information and practical examples that will empower community leaders, activists, and students to develop successful and long-lasting water programs. Chasing Water will provide local stakeholders with the tools and knowledge they need to take an active role in the watershed-based planning and implementation that are essential for water supplies to remain sustainable in perpetuity.
