1. Which organizations are leading innovation and positive change in the field of water sustainability? Which have had the biggest impact recently? Which are you most excited about?
2. Do you know of any outstanding journalists or bloggers writing about water, whose voices would be particularly appropriate for World Pulse's editorial style [solutions-oriented, timely, women-focused]? If so, please list them by name, and include any links to recent articles, if available.
3. What projects/actions/organizations/individuals/websites do you feel World Pulse should direct readers toward to make an impact on water issues?
4. What are the most exciting events coming up in 2008?
5. Are there any particular water sustainability products that you'd recommend to readers who would like to become part of the solution? Or companies whose business practices support water sustainability?

Helping with the E-magazines?

Hi Maria,

Please let me know if you have any more research or planning needs with the upcoming e-magazines (great topics coming up!) or anything else. I'm eager to help in whatever way I can.

Also, I would love to explore some ways I can promote PulseWire & World Pulse through a web site/organization I help run ( I have a goal of featuring an interview with Jensine or another staff member in the near future. I'm open to other creative ideas as well. Think Girl has some big projects in the works, including a national feminist summit in May 2009 in Detroit. I will be sending you and Jensine info on that soon; I'd love to bring some major attention to PulseWire through this conference.

It was so nice to see my latest post on PulseWire as a featured one, and to notice my name on the web site's Our Gratitude section on the About Us page. I truly appreciate it and am happy to keep contributing!

The Global Rainwater Harvesting Collective helps communities to build rooftop rainwater harvesting systems in schools in remote, rural areas which lack clean drinking water. By having sources of clean drinking water at school, more girls attend school. By collecting rainwater, the cost for clean, drinking water is less than drilling or piped-systems.
