Today kicks off #3BLwater http://bit.ly/1HCAd2U  JOIN US ALL WEEK as we share stories, news and ask questions. Celebrate #WWWeek@3BLMedia

For the past 25 years, over 200 organizations have been gathering in Stockholm, Sweden at World Water Week, to discuss water and development issues. Here at 3BL Media, instead of being bummed that we weren’t headed to #WWWeek, we decided to make the most of it from this side of the Atlantic. Water is a HOT topic amongst our clients, bloggers and affiliates.  We wanted to celebrate in our own way along with highlight some of the great content coming out of the Stockholm event. #3BLwater was a live one-week hashtag series from August 23 through 28th.

With so many various discussion points regarding water, we themed up each day of the conversation to focus on several issues including: sustainable investing, technology, health, conversation and empowerment of women and children. Our entire group jumped in on the event – Justmeans, CSRwire, Ethical Performance and SocialEarth.
