Since its establishment in 2000, Swarovski Waterschool has educated almost half-a-million young people across 2,400 schools worldwide on the significance of water preservation through online resources, field trips and hands-on workshops. Waterschool highlights these efforts through the moving stories of several young women who live along six of the world’s major rivers – the Amazon, Mississippi, Danube, Nile, Ganges and Yangtze. Vivid and poignant, the film is a reminder of how the power of education, along with the support of the business community, can tackle the world’s most pressing environmental issues.
The film, as well as the organization, comes as a fitting undertaking for Swarovski as sustainability, preservation and most specifically, water, have always been fundamental to the company. The family-run business was founded in 1895 along the Austrian Alps and has always relied on small-scale hydro-electric power to cut and polish crystal.
Swarovski Waterschool and its documentary are a powerful call to arms to protect the lifeblood of our planet, encouraging all who watch to become an ambassador for water conservation.
