Storey, Helen (2009) Water Amnesty. UNSPECIFIED.
|Type of Research:||Other|
This was a project of research in action for societal good, bringing together the HE sector with a leading NGO(ONE Water/Global Ethics) to help address a global problem, lack of clean drinking water in Africa.
In collaboration with the Universities of UAL, Westminster and Sheffield, I curated and delivered a campaign for a new sustainability project called Water Amnesty. The object was to design a campaign that could encourage the saving of water across our 33 campuses and donate 50% of that saving onto ONE Water, a charity who provide clean and sustainable water sources, pumped up by children’s play on roundabouts in Africa. The outputs were web based, along with an 18% saving on water usage for UAL, 10% for Sheffield and 15% for The University of Westminster. The project will be run again this November. Sheffield University are running it for a year.

My work widely spans the arts, sciences and new technology fields. I produce projects which illuminate aspects of science and well being in ways that directly interact with the public, with the broad aim of helping individuals reach their full creative potential. More recently I have begun to focus my creative energy on working in collaboration with other Universities to solve global problems.
