To drive home the importance of water conservation and protection, the Change the Course team is producing a new series of shorts called “Life Without Water is Awkward: Change the Course.”

The first two videos have been released, and are already airing on Pivot TV, a brand new cable television network aimed at galvanizing young people for positive change.

Pivot is a division of Participant Media, the company behind such documentary hits as Food, Inc., Last Call at the Oasis, and An Inconvenient Truth. Participant Media is a core partner of the Change the Course campaign, an effort to restore the critical Colorado River Basin that is also led by National Geographic and the Bonneville Environmental Foundation.

Participant Media has done the heavy lifting to produce “Life Without Water is Awkward,” although the National Geographic and Bonneville teams helped brainstorm the concepts at the idea phase.

We hope the short clips help you think about water in a new way. What do you think?
