Project WET’s mission is to advance water education to understand global challenges and inspire local solutions. We achieve our mission by:

Project WET USA

Launched in North Dakota in 1984, Project WET has developed a nationwide network of organizations and individuals dedicated to providing world-class water education to people of all ages. Our USA Network includes state agencies, municipal utilities, zoos and aquariums, faith-based organizations, colleges and universities and many other organizations with an interest in water and education throughout all 50 states.

International Network

Water knows no borders. Because water is by its nature international, we have been working around the world since 1995. We now have partners and host institutions in more than 70 countries, and our materials have been customized, localized and translated for countries ranging from China to Uganda. Just as with our U.S.-based water education efforts, our international work varies by area and topic. Many of these resources are available free of charge thanks to partnerships with international and U.S. organizations such as USAID and UN-HABITAT.
