Take our WET Pledge and turn up the water pressure!




311 people played a vital role in helping ensure that people living in tourism destinations don’t have their access to water compromised.

By taking the WET Pledge, they added their voices to our calls for the tourism industry and governments to protect the water rights of communities in tourism destinations.

The WET pledge campaign is now closed but we continue to press the international tourism industry and governments in tourism destinations to ensure that the water rights of local people are protected in the face of increasing competition from the industry. Watch this space for future WET campaign actions…
