World Water Day 2022: Take the one minute video challenge!


With the 22nd of March approaching, IGRAC and the other World Water Day taskforce members start a new video challenge. We are asking people from around the world to make a 60 second film on the theme of ‘Groundwater – making the invisible visible’. The campaign description below and the instruction video with IGRAC's Communication Specialist Stefan Siepman explain how to participate. 


One minute film challenge: Shoot a video about groundwater – make the invisible visible!

Tell us in one minute or less: how does groundwater affect your life? Is there enough? Is it safe to use? What is groundwater mainly used for in your area? What needs to be done to exploit or protect groundwater? Share your groundwater story. Grab your phone or camera and make a 60 second video about the groundwater situation where you live.

A selection of 5 films will be shown at the UN-Water Summit on Groundwater in December 2022.
