Important water education for the next generation

Water is one of the most important issues and will become even more important for the next generation. Brave Blue World shows kids and adults that there are solutions through innovation and technology. It's inspiring and uplifting, and I can see it encouraging kids to pursue careers in water. Good for middle school, high school and college students!

I really enjoyed this inspiring documentary and the stories that were told. It brought home to me how important water is to us in both the developing and developed world. My kids loved it as well and it should. be shown in all schools. Look forward to the sequel!
