In a departure from its traditional sparkling collections and collaborations, Swarovski is proud to present a new documentary as part of the BBC’s The Climate and Us series. This captivating film showcases the remarkable work of Joshua Ichor, a hydrologist who developed a hand pump monitoring system and clean water kiosks for communities in Africa following a severe typhoid infection. Ichor’s achievements are being celebrated alongside the United Nations through this inspiring documentary.
As a graduate of the Swarovski Foundation’s Creatives for Our Future program, Ichor has demonstrated that innovation can lead to meaningful change in some of the most challenging environments. With his expertise in water management, he has created solutions that not only provide clean water but also empower communities to take control of their own futures.
