It’s no secret that there is a water crisis in many developing countries around the world. Many people everyday go without clean safe water. More people have access to a mobile phone than they do to a toilet. While several organizations are working feverishly to come up with a global water solution, it is believed a long term solution will come from the students of today working together towards one goal.

It won’t be one particular degree or field that will get the job done, many different fields will be needed in order to solve the water crisis. Students pursuing a degree in civil engineering will be needed to plan and build infrastructure. Those with environmental science degrees will be needed to survey land and make sure getting clean water to an area won’t disturb other ecosystems. Political science majors and humanities degree holders will be needed to work with officials in developing countries. Mechanical engineers will be needed to develop drinking water filtration systems. The list goes on and on, but one thing is certain, the water crisis will be solved by passionate and educated individuals.

This global water supply infographic will show you just how bad the water crisis is and it might have you thinking what you really can do with your degree to change the world.
