Global issue water

01 Nov

Children and adult go thirsty, this is a huge problem. How can we through art tell the story?
I think that a lot of truth appears in the eyes of a child. So how about making children eyes to water.




Do you know how much water we use on everything? Not only shower and washing up, but how many gallons of water it takes to make one t-shirt, a piece of paper or even a car. I had no idea.

Cotton t-shirt 400 gallons of water

Car 39000 gallons of water

One paper 2,6 gallons of water

And still people die from not having water.

Some 1.1 billion people in developing countries have inadequate access to water

2.6 billion people lack basic sanitation

Lack of water is closely related to poverty:

Almost two in three people lacking access to clean water survive on less than $2 a day, with one in three living on less than $1 a day

More than 660 million people without sanitation live on less than $2 a day, and more than 385 million on less than $1 a day.

Some 1.8 million children die each year as a result of diarrhea


Rain water comes down from the clouds, when the sun comes the water is converted into steam that rises up in the air again. This means that when the wind blows, the steam will move to a new area. When it rains here it will all happen again. Water, the true crisis by Terje Tvedt. Lack of water and drying time is not the same. Lack of water means that there is no water, dried intermittently. Chronic lack of water means that all times are without water. Water, what do you think when you hear this word? Cool clear water? one glass of refreshing water to quench your thirst with? delicious bath outside in summer, perhaps in the bathtub? or how about a fishing trip? Not everyone is so fortunate. Some countries are struggling with that they do not get rain, and there will almost nothing heal. Animals and humans die of thirst. Water that stands still in ponds are often dirty and muddy. Who would drink this, can you drink this? More fall ill because they have no clean source of water. The problem that people do not have enough drinking water, has lasted for many years. They had here a diagram of 1980/1990 where they clearly show that millions of people do not have clean water or water at all and drink.
