S2 Ep 7: Racing to global water access with Eleanor Allen

S2 Ep7 of "The Stream"


In this week’s episode, Eleanor Allen, CEO of the charity Water for People, joins Will Sarni & Tom Freyberg to talk about her ultra-cycling bug and latest adventure, Race Across the West, an epic 930-mile journey across desert and mountains in four days to raise awareness on the need for clean water.

Plus, Eleanor gives us her origin story from working as an environmental consultant to heading up the global non-profit organisation, the importance of capacity building to help meet SDG 6, and how Water for People has mastered storytelling to drive awareness, plus much much more! We hope you enjoy the episode! Water for People is a charity that has helped millions of people across nine countries get access to clean water:
