SDG 6_Clear Water and Sanitation.jpg

Goal 6: Ensure access to water and sanitation for all

According to the UN, "clean, accessible water for all is an essential part of the world we want to live in. There is sufficient fresh water on the planet to achieve this. But due to bad economics or poor infrastructure, every year millions of people, most of them children, die from diseases associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene".

"Over 660 million people don't have clean water to drink - that's more than double the population of USA [Updated fact for 2015]. For children, a lack of safe water affects every aspect of their lives - from nutrition to education to safety. In 2015, join the conversation and tell us what #wateris to you".

In our interconnected world, we interact with people from different cultures on a daily basis. Assumptions are made, interpreting comments, reactions and behaviors. The result is often miscommunication because of a culture difference. These miscommunications can be extremely costly to organizations and relationships.
Real World Solutions provides practical training and coaching in intercultural awareness and competence for professionals and organizations in business, health care, education, and community services.
