WaterCube.tv documents people working to tackle the problems people face getting access to clean water and proper sanitation around the world. Our unique video cube lands at key events focused on water, and is staffed by an independent, constantly-changing team of video reporters. WaterCube puts digital video into the hands of everyone - not a few TV people. We want to help those working in water learn how to use online video to begin documenting their own work to global audiences, sharing knowledge and creating unexpected partnerships and opportunities. WaterCube partners include SIWI, IRC, Akvo, India Water Portal and UN Habitat. For editorial enquiries, please contact Mark Charmer - email@example.com
