Another Drop November 2018

The United Nations University Institute for Water, Environment and Health (UNU-INWEH) is pleased to invite you to its next free, public lecture! 


Communication Water Issues Using Film and Television


The creators and hosts of the TVO series The Water Brothers, Alex and Tyler Mifflin, share stories and learning lessons from their adventures documenting some of the most pressing environmental issues in the world today. With the health of freshwater and ocean ecosystems in such extreme peril, it is critical to use media platforms to educate and inform the public about the scale of water challenges we face and to empower people with knowledge about available solutions. How do we get the public to both understand these complex challenges and be inspired to change behaviours and take action? Regardless of your profession or if you even work in media, it is imperative that as many people as possible learn how to become effective communicators of environmental issues to help inspire their friends, family and the next generation of water warriors!

Guest Speakers

Alex and Tyler Mifflin are the award-winning hosts and creators of the acclaimed eco-adventure documentary series The Water Brothers. Over the past five years, they have travelled the globe from the highest peak in Africa to the world’s mightiest rivers, deserts, and to the bottom of the ocean, exploring some of the most important water stories of our time. Commissioned by TVO, the series now in it’s 4th season is aired in over 40 countries. Winners of the BBC Earth Best Newcomers award at the UK’s Wildscreen festival, and Best Broadcast Series at the prestigious Blue Ocean Film Festival, the Brothers’ passion for environmental education and conservation has led them to become water ambassadors in Canada and around the world. They strongly believe in ensuring that audiences and particularly young people are aware of the challenges we face in relation to our most precious resource – and understand the true economic value of water and the available and emerging solutions that their generation will be the ones to have to implement in order to harmonize our relationship with the eco-systems all life on earth depend on.
