All major rivers in the world have their headwaters in mountains and one of every two people on the planet depend on mountain water in one way or another. 

Unfortunately, today more than a billion people worldwide do not benefit from access to safe water supplies. 

A disproportionate number live in developing countries where water scarcities are so great that the ability to grow food and to build a stable economy have been severely hindered. 

So whether for drinking or growing food, it is crucial for mountain springwater to be protected, conserved and distributed well.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
 
Broader freshwater and environmental projects in the Slovenian region include the 'Amazon of Europe' petition fighting for the intactness of the Mura-Drava-Danube riverside forests, or 'AquaViva' that works to maintain nature's biodiversity in the area.

Freshwater scarcity is of course a far greater issue that stretches way beyond mountainwater preservation. Almost a billion people live without access to safe water. 

Water.org, co-founded by Matt Damon is one organisation aiming to cope with this problem:
