Sustainable Nation shows how innovative new technologies, developed in Israel, can help free women and the world from life threatening poverty, illness and lack of opportunity. Follow three of the world’s leading experts on their quest to bring innovative and sustainable water solutions to an increasingly parched planet.

1.2 billion people live without access to clean drinking water. This film follows the story of three individuals who are doing their part to bring sustainable water solutions to an increasingly thirsty planet.

Using solutions developed in water-poor Israel, they are working to change the status quo of a world where one in ten people go without clean drinking water. But water is just the beginning.

The work of this visionary trio highlights the nexus between food, energy and water and underscores how solving these enormous challenges can help free women, and the world, from life-threatening poverty, illness and lack of opportunity.

From the creators of Netflix-featured Beneath the Helmet: From High School to the Home Front, and PBS-featured Israel Inside: How a Small Nation Makes a Big Difference, Sustainable Nation shows how fixing global water issues is not only a matter of life and death but a step towards healing the world.
