Lead 2030 Challenge for SDG 6 – Supported by RB

By 2030, it is estimated that the world will only have 60% of the water it needs. The goal for this challenge is to create change by developing the right educational and/or technological tools for responsible water consumption in the home. There should be a focus on families, where water consumption per household is at its highest.

More Details

This challenge seeks to support initiatives that:

  • Educate households especially in countries and regions at greatest risk to the consequences of water scarcity.
  • Drive innovative ways to reduce water within households. This can be done through focused behavioural change methods or technological innovation – the key is that it must allow for practical execution and be scalable and accessible.
  • Ensure proposals are not just developed for short term benefits but hold sustainable long-term objectives too. These are changes that should be passed on to future generations.

Opportunity Focus Areas:

  • Water scarcity.
  • Developing economies.
  • International development.
  • Global population.
