The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) is a supporting partner for the documentary, Brave Blue World. The film will showcase how innovation and technology can solve water challenges and advance resource recovery.

Filming took place at WEFTEC 2018 in New Orleans and WEF President Tom Kunetz was interviewed for the documentary. WEF intends to use the film as an opportunity for public outreach in collaboration with its network of 75 Member Associations.

“Innovation and technology are driving exciting solutions to many of the problems facing humanity, and the water sector is no exception,” said Kunetz. “Brave Blue World will showcase the promising breakthroughs taking place in water science and engineering that will contribute to a sustainable future for the planet.”

The documentary explores the potential for a sustainable water future. It follows Paul O’Callaghan, CEO of BlueTech Research (Cork, Ireland), as he visits sites using novel ways of turning water problems into new opportunities. It explores how the human relationship with water is being reimagined.

“Often we see the state of water portrayed from perspectives of difficult challenges and desperate situations,” said Eileen O’Neill, WEF executive director. “It’s important to also show that we are in an era of incredible progress with great possibilities for enhanced water security and WEF is excited that Brave Blue World will highlight this positive paradigm shift.”

Other partners include BlueTech Research, Dow Water Solutions (Edina, Minn.), L’Oréal (Clichy, France) and SUEZ – Water Technologies & Solutions (Trevose, Pa.), and Xylem (Rye Brook, N.Y.).
