Businesses interested in water management and the new technologies that are now being adopted to help protect global water resources may want to make sure they catch the new Netflix film that’s about to be streamed on October 21st, narrated by Liam Neeson and featuring the likes of Matt Damon and Jaden Smith.

 

The film’s mission is to challenge commonly held assumptions about the world’s water systems, as well as changing people’s perceptions of water itself.

 

Interestingly, one of its goals is to dispel the global sense of impending doom where climate change and the planet is concerned by painting a picture of an alternative and optimistic water future, detailing just how this can be achieved… so the perfect film to watch for anyone who has been experiencing feelings of eco-anxiety at the moment.

 

Brave Blue World sets about exploring the different technologies and innovations that could potentially solve the world’s water crisis, highlighting the various advancements that have been taking place to ensure that populations around the world have access to clean water and safe sanitation services, while protecting the environment.

 

The documentary will take viewers on a journey around the world, visiting different sites and meeting the pioneers who are exploring novel ways of tackling the various water problems we’re faced with.

 

Executive producer Paul O’Callaghan came up with the idea for the film, inspired during his international travels as founder and chief executive of BlueTech Research.

 

After speaking to many water utilities, academics, tech companies and communities, he came to the conclusion that the countries whose governments were progressive where water innovation and tech adoption were concerned appeared to have especially high levels of public engagement, as well as greater awareness of regional water supply and wastewater treatment issues.

 

“The Brave Blue World documentary is an industry collaboration and celebration of the scientific and technology advancements that have been taking place, often behind the scenes, to deliver water services. This is the first time a documentary of this scale – bringing together global projects and partners – has been produced specifically on water.

 

“Often media coverage on water can be quite apocalyptic. Instead, Brave Blue World will be produced as a more hopeful, optimistic and solutions-oriented story about water. We’re proud of this collaboration and thankful to the partners for their support,” Mr O’Callaghan said.

 

The H2o Building Services team will certainly be watching Brave Blue World as soon as it lands on Netflix on the 21st and we hope it inspires all of you to start thinking about your own water footprints and what you can do to help safeguard this precious resource for future generations.
