Each year Stroud Water Research Center hosts The Water’s Edge gala in celebration of our most precious resource — water.

Please join us at The Water’s Edge gala at Longwood Gardens on November 19 as we present the 2015 Stroud Award for Freshwater Excellence to Alexandra Cousteau.

I believe water will be the defining crisis of our century — from droughts, storms, and floods to degrading water quality. We’ll see major conflicts over water and the proliferation of water refugees. We inhabit a water planet, and unless we protect, manage and restore that resource, the future will be a very different place from the one we imagine today.” —Alexandra Cousteau

Alexandra is the founder and “Chief Water Optimist” of Blue Legacy, a non-profit organization on a mission to empower people to reclaim and restore the world’s water, one community at a time. Blue Legacy explores water issues around the globe and shares those findings through short films as well as mainstream and social media.

The Stroud Award for Freshwater Excellence, also known as the SAFE Water Award, is given in recognition of outstanding achievement in freshwater-related activities. Past recipients include Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. (2014); Jane Lubchenco, Ph.D. and Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D. (2013); John Briscoe, Ph.D. (2012); and Olivia Newton-John and John Easterling (2011).
