Change the Course: Hope for “Troubled Waters”

Earlier this year, National Geographic Freshwater Fellow (and Water Currents host and contributor) Sandra Postel gave a talk to a packed auditorium at National Geographic headquarters here in Washington, D.C. In “Troubled Waters,” Postel outlined the challenges we face in an increasingly water-strapped world.

But unlike many predictions of gloom and doom of late, Postel also offered ample solutions. She explained how everyone can help by joining the Change the Course campaign, a project of National Geographic, the Bonneville Environmental Foundation, and Participant Media.
