What can I do?
Whether it’s sparking a conversation, sharing a story, writing a song or creating your own project, there’s plenty that can be done to raise awareness about water. Join our global community to share in the experiences of others who care as much as you.
Our creative partners
Collaborative workshops, singing performances and educational and cultural events are a great way of connecting people with water. We can all make water famous by coming together to share experiences and have fun while inspiring others to get involved.

One-day singing splash
Songwriter and performer Lorraine Bowen rose to fame on Britain’s Got Talent and wowed the nation with her Crumble Song, which has 13.5 million views on YouTube.
Lorraine is an experienced conductor and workshop leader and enjoys taking a group – of any age - from scratch to performance level in one day. She’s a passionate campaigner for wildlife and the environment and recently wrote Down to Earth a collection of nature-related songs.
She’d love to lead your singing workshop on the theme of water.
Lorraine entertains with her Casio organ and backing tracks and can perform a short water-themed cabaret set to accompany any festival, seminar or convention.
Write a watery song
Musicians Naomi Bedford and Paul Simmonds have produced a series of acclaimed country-folk albums. Paul is also songwriter and guitarist with English folk-rock institution The Men They Couldn't Hang.
Together they lead water-themed song-writing workshops with schools and community groups across the UK. The workshops are suitable for everyone, any age – even if you can’t sing a note. In a half-day session, a group collaborates on their own completely new song to share with friends and family.

Why not start a podcast or radio show about water. Use our water news to get the conversation going.
Water careers mash-up
There is a skills and recruitment crisis in water. And we think it is because too few people know about the fabulous opportunities that exist in this sector.
Partner with Make Water Famous to bring tomorrow’s water professionals together with those working in the sector today, through a Make Water Famous Careers Mash-Up. We can create engaging and collaborative events in schools and colleges, where engineers and water scientists and communicators share their experiences - and students get to know the world of water.
Email for more information about our careers events.
As water storytellers, we know what a vast and complex topic this is - and how there is always more to learn. We also have decades of specialised multimedia experience in journalism and communications embedded in our team, along with a vast network of experts in the field of water.
The climate crisis will be felt through water, and knowledge about water will help those telling the stories do so in the most effective way possible, whether they are scientists, engineers, journalists, business leaders or students.
We are looking for partners in industry, media and academia who want to share the expertise in our network with their teams and their students - or even groups outside their organisations.
Our bespoke Make Water Famous Storytelling Masterclasses will help sharpen your ability to identify and craft story ideas around water and environmental themes. Delivered face-to-face or online, you will engage with experts in the fields of water and media & communications and build your knowledge and your network.
Our mission is to Make Water Famous - what better way than to transfer expertise and make better communicators of everyone.
Spread the word
Whatever you are doing to make water famous, we want to hear about it. That is the beauty of our mission – we are here to help everyone create, collaborate, share - in an ever-flowing cycle of watery inspiration.
