Santa Fe Global Water Festival

  • Santa Fe Global Water Festival


  • Vision:
    • A world of clean, pure and healthy water available for all life systems to flourish. A world in which humans respect and steward the water resources of the planet and the life forms that inhabit and depend on these resources. Through our common agreement, commitment and action, humans restore the water systems to their pristine state through harmony with all the elements of Nature, wise management practices and education



  • Mission:
    • To promote respect and honor for all life, beginning with water. To understand what is needed to provide sustainable, healthy water for all life systems. To form alliances that support the vision and establish strategies for its implementation; to draft agreements as bases for action and commitments that empower them towards fulfillment. To have fun, celebrate our interconnectedness and experience how cultures around the world honor and relate to water through music, art, dance, performance and ceremony. To explore and discover the great mystery of water.


  • Concept:
    • As we remember our oneness we come together to re-establish heaven on earth
  • By recognizing that we create our own reality, we engage the process of restoration
  • When we come together in cooperative endeavor, our power is so great that the new reality we create is what we want from our heart and soul for ourselves, everyone, and everything. Grace is allowed to work its healing magic within and without. Water is our most powerful, magnificent and effective ally for achieving this and our restoration begins with her. In our mutual love, water and we together transform the realationship between humans and the Earth. Our desire and intent to reverse the collective damage we have inflicted on life is in harmony and alignment with a great shift that is taking place in our world. We are part of that shift. Our contribution is our gift to Creation in gratitude for life .We are grateful for the opportunity to make a difference.
    • By bringing together in one container an array of resources, options and understandings in relationship to water, we initiate a broad grassroots alliance and strategy for restoration of our waters on all levels. The broader the alliance, the easier the process. We celebrate and honor our connection with water, with each other and with the Earth. Our coming together in fun, music, art, performance, healing, conversation, information, ceremony, agreement and commitment, will contribute to the manifestation of this vision.
