Of course, we are not the only group of concerned scholars, artists, and citizens dedicated to finding solutions to the global water crisis. One group that is truly an inspiration is The Center of Advanced Materials for the Purification of Water with Systems (WaterCAMPWS). This group is a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center.

The mission of The WaterCAMPWS is to develop revolutionary new materials and systems for safely and economically purifying water for human use, while simultaneously developing the diverse human resources needed to exploit the research advances and the knowledge base created.

Their size, depth, and example of interdisciplinary work is impressive and inspirational. They have so many members from a variety of different institutions and locations. If we can only be so fortunate and evolve into an impressive resource for water research and education.
