Living Waters Museum is a virtual museum that engages youth in identifying and communicating stories about transforming waters in their environs. We seek to co-create a digital repository to facilitate collaborative work towards sustainable and equitable water futures. In this talk, I will walk us through some of our recent initiatives which present multidisciplinary perspectives about water - technological, social, and cultural – through storytelling, data visualization, and the arts. I will illustrate how such initiatives can provide a platform to create widespread awareness about our intricate and interconnected water systems.
