All citizens around the world have the potential to be ‘citizen scientists’. Together we can safeguard and improve the quality of water, and thereby improve quality of life. Training people in collecting and sharing data about the conditions of their
surroundings, will provide insight in the quality of water resources worldwide. Offering an educational aspect that focuses on the health risks of using unsafe water and on how to address these risks, will increase access to safe drinking water for people around the
world. This is especially relevant in developing countries, where people often depend on water resources of poor quality.
