Travel from water source to river mouth to learn about the water inequality that lies below the surface.

Earth is soaked in water from core to atmosphere. But just 3% of the planet’s water is fresh, and one in four of us doesn’t have access to clean drinking water. How do we protect people’s right to water when there’s not enough, and how do we adapt to extreme water events?

Fair Water reveals some of the global barriers to water equality and explores how researchers, communities and policymakers are working together to shape a fair water future.

Water has the power to hold our lives in the balance. Issues of water insecurity impact not only humans but also freshwater species, including the Ganges River Dolphin, Helicopter Catfish, and the fish and insects native to Britain’s waterways.

Discover how communities and engineers in  Kenya, Ethiopia, and Bangladesh are working to provide access to drinking water and protection against hazards like floods and droughts. With striking photography from Ethiopian artist Aïda Muluneh, the exhibition reveals how life without clean water has an especially great impact on women’s lives and futures.
