Fostering Climate Literacy

As a nation, we face challenges every day.

Our tale as Americans is a story of resilience, overcoming inequities, and addressing obstacles head-on. Today, we rise up to face a multifaceted climate crisis that stands to disrupt every aspect of our lives. At times, environmentalism can feel daunting. Unfortunately, this is the case more often than not.

At NeptuneChain, we aim to tackle a small but meaningful corner of environmentalism; water insecurity.

Our team is building a blockchain-based WebApp designed to revolutionize traditional water markets and open the doors to simplified purification. Though that may seem to be a large cross to bear, the good news is that you don’t have to create a cutting-edge start-up to make an impactful difference.

The first step in reducing your water footprint begins with fostering climate literacy. In order to reverse water insecurity, we all must recognize the importance of clean water and the role that healthy watersheds play in our economy, ecology, and community.

We need to understand how to coordinate with public and private sectors to promote policies that use the best available science at a local, state, and federal level. Each of these groups is integral in protecting public health, maintaining water quality, and promoting national security.

The more we understand water insecurity, the better we can work with our representatives and policymakers to put forward legislation that supports farmers, businesses, and consumers. The goal is not just to save water, money, or time — but to make water insecurity a part of history, an inflection point for all future generations. In the 21st century, we have the capacity to promote effective water management policies and harness the power of technology to reverse water insecurity.
