As the world gears up to celebrate World Water Day on March 22, 2024, Cape Town is set to host a remarkable advocate for water conservation and sustainability, Mina Guli. The renowned international water activist and founder of the Run Blue Campaign is poised to drive global awareness and activation to safeguard our most precious resource—water.

Guli’s visit to Cape Town marks a pivotal moment in the ongoing battle against water scarcity. Amidst the backdrop of a city that faced its own water crisis not too long ago, and a country that is currently experiencing water shortages in many provinces, her presence serves as a poignant reminder of the urgent need for collective action.

On Friday, March 22, Mina will lace up her running shoes to participate in a fun run/walk in Sea Point, Cape Town, as part of the World Water Run, which will see thousands of people running and walking for water across the world as part of her Run Blue Campaign.This initiative, which extends its reach virtually worldwide, aims to inspire individuals to step out and contribute to the cause of water conservation. Participants are encouraged to run or walk for water and share their accomplishments on social media using the hashtag #worldwaterrun.

Over the past few years, Guli has been at the forefront of efforts to raise awareness about the global water shortage through various impactful initiatives, which have built the biggest global grassroots movement in history on water! The most recent of which being her Run Blue campaign where she completed 200 marathons in 32 countries in one year around the world, including one in Cape Town. She finished her 200th on the steps of the United Nations to kickstart the UN Water Conference and drive home the urgency of the water crisis and how everyone has a real part to play in securing our future.

In a statement reflecting on her mission, Guli emphasizes, “Water scarcity is one of the most pressing challenges of our time, affecting billions of people worldwide. Through the Run Blue Campaign, my goal is to ignite a sense of urgency and empower individuals, businesses and governments to take meaningful action to conserve water resources.”

Mina’s efforts extend beyond mere advocacy; she is a catalyst for change, inspiring tangible solutions to address the water crisis. Through partnerships with governments, NGOs, and grassroots organizations, she strives to implement sustainable water management practices and promote water resilience on a global scale.

As Cape Town prepares to welcome Mina Guli for World Water Day, the call to action reverberates louder than ever. It’s a call to mobilize communities, to raise awareness, and to champion the cause of water conservation. By participating in the World Water Run and joining the Run Blue Campaign, individuals can contribute to a shared vision of a water-secure future for all.

In the words of Mina Guli, “Together, we have the power to make a difference. Let’s lace up, step out, and run for water—for our planet, for our future.”

The stage is set, the challenge clear. As Cape Town embraces Mina Guli’s visit, the world watches, poised to follow in her footsteps towards a more sustainable and water-secure tomorrow. For more information on how you can get involved, please visit https://www.runblue.org/
