We train and connect people to create meaningful impact through Decentralized Water Retention.

Whether you’re experiencing Drought, Flood, Fire, Extreme Weather, Water Scarcity, or Ecosystem Collapse - this is the place to transform your concerns into actions. ‍We created Water Stories to empower you to revive landscapes and provide space to connect with communities taking action for a better common future.

How do we train thousands of people to Restore the Water Cycle?

This is the question that gave birth to Water Stories. We are a team of Water Cycle Restoration professionals, creatives, and advocates, set on empowering people around the world to revive rivers, reverse drought, and heal their lands and waters.

Water Stories’ mission is to distill the wisdom of the world’s leading Water Heroes into an actionable training that can be done by anyone. We believe that anyone, no matter your background, context, income, or age, can have an impact on your local Water Cycle.

Why Water?

Water is the source of life on earth. It is also the primary driver of global temperature and climate. Humanity’s increasingly abusive relationship with water has led us down the watershed death spiral, with drought, flood, and fire all increasing in frequency and severity. We can reverse this cycle, and ensure an abundant and productive future - by simply changing our relationship with water.

Water Cycle Restoration

Why Stories?

New sources of inspiration: the time has come for a new mythology, one that includes our ability to restore the health and abundance of our land. Humans are not just destroyers, we are also creators - we have the ability to co-create with nature a better common future. Stories are the antidote to environmental despair, moving you from aware to activated - empowering your ability to make a positive impact.

“This is amazing. More than I could have hoped for. Please keep it going. Don't let it become a cult. Sometimes I worry our language borders on the culty. We are a movement, not a cult. Please don't forget. I don't want to be part of a cult. But seriously, I love all of you guys that made this possible for me and I really hope we can beat the Green-Meanies and get the Solar Punk future we deserve!”

“Very good video. Inspired graphics and animation. Very instructive. Most people just never have the opportunity to think about what the real problems are and what the real solutions are.”

Hart Hagan

“This is a beautiful, potent recounting of the rarest kind of miracle, one that can be taught to family as well as adapted to other cultures and geological circumstances.”

“Wow, this series of 3 animation videos is beautifully illustrated and fills in the missing pieces that we're not taught about the hydrologic cycle. Really nicely done!”

Andrew Millison
The Revived Water Cycle

“These are wonderful, simple, inspiring explanations that give hope and motivation. I pointed out this website and the videos to a friend who is a 5th grade teacher. She is very enthused and plans to use these materials for her students in next year's study of the water cycle. Thank you Zach!”

Nicole Masters

“Gathering my thoughts, listening, learning and watching. A multitude of questions cross my mind and then I watch another video and read more posts and the answers are given. Its only my first day, I hope to contribute soon but For now I want to ('scuse the pun) just absorb. Thank you to all who have and do!”

Christie McHargue

“Yes - Wow! Beautiful and clearly articulated. EVERYONE needs to see these :)”

Deb Phenicie

“Brilliant and inspirational thesis for the regenerative restoration work needed! The ecological and social benefits are clear; How can we evolve our political and economic systems to likewise reward this progressive Full Water Cycle revival?”

Malcolm Suhr
The Revived Water Cycle

“The film is even better than I was hoping. When explaining water retention to people, it is so holistic that it can be difficult to summarize the main concept. I feel like this film will allow me to explain to those around me why I am so invested in this. Thank you to everyone involved in making it! I am so excited for my next step - the courses!”
