Your gift makes a difference! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

Hello readers,

At Nextblue, we begin our journey this new year with renewed hope, knowing that you will continue to travel along with us.

Your support, much like water, is the lifeline for our work. With it, we reach out to some of the most vulnerable communities, and also share their traditional wisdom with the world.

Your gifts in 2021 helped us train 41 people from vulnerable groups in deltaic areas, to produce 63 stories, and a lot of videos that were screened at the Water and Climate Pavilion at COP26. ๐ŸŒ

When we started Nextblue, a platform for independent journalism aimed at creating a solution-led impact, it seemed an enormous task. But then, so many of you joined us, either as a storyteller, contributor, or one-time donor, and helped us evolve Nextblue into a meaningful platform.

Today, we feel encouraged and optimistic that together we can create an even more positive impact in communities affected by climate change and water challenges.

As you may have noticed, all the stories in Nextblue can be accessed freely. And we take pride that we do not use cookies at all.

We need more support to keep Nextblue's content available for all, and to highlight challenges and solutions. We count on your contributions to reach more communities and people who are fighting climate change on a daily basis.

You can support us by becoming a paid member for $5!

Or, you can make a one-off donation here.

Every contribution counts.

Together, let's build stories around water, to effect positive change.

With your gifts, we have produced these stories
