One Water One World
An annual event in Miami featuring inspiring talks about our water and its future.
The One Water One World (OWOW) Talks is an annual event in Miami, Florida. OWOW aims to build a strong community of people interested in the future of our planet in general and the preservation of global water resources in specific. We use storytelling as a tool to build bridges between government, industry, utilities, academia and civil society. Launched in 2020, OWOW aspires to be among the top water related program focused on community building and public education.
OWOW is a collaboration of two Florida based 501 (C) 3 non-profits organizations: One Water Academy and Media for Change. While the Academy focuses on water education, Media for Change is committed to the use of storytelling as a bridge in a divided world. Media for Change supports non-profits with their storytelling and communication needs.
