Water, Air and Food Awards targets breakthrough low-tech, high impact, local innovations for clean water, clean air and nutritious food. WAFA acknowledges and promotes these low-cost solutions so they can be replicated and create significant global impact.
Each one of us can help make this happen for everyone on Earth – our common home.
To be or not to be sustainable, that is the question.
