Mina Guli is a water campaigner and ultra-runner. She is the founder of Thirst, a China-based non-profit that educates children on invisible water.

She is also a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum.

Global Goal 6 is focused on ensuring water and sanitation for all.
Clean, safe, accessible water for all is the most pressing issue of our world faces today. Water scarcity, poor water quality and inadequate sanitation affects people’s lives, livelihoods, food security, choices and future.

The UN has adopted a wide-reaching set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.

For the goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part: governments, the private sector, civil society and people like you. Goal 6 focusses on water.

The first step to getting involved and contributing to a sustainable future, is by telling everyone about them. So, here we are!

Why six rivers?
The rivers Mina ran along, bring the issues of Global Goal 6 to life. They vividly illustrate the various world-wide water issues that affect people’s lives on a daily basis.

These problems can be solved with innovation, but only if people are informed and committed enough to re-engineer their lives, if companies work to adopt sustainable best practices (for example, by making more water-friendly products) and if governments commit to implement Goal 6 through their national and local policies.

We believe that our global water issues can be solved with innovation, but only if people are informed and inspired enough to re-engineer their lives, encourage companies to adopt sustainable best practices, and make more water friendly products. The first step to making this happen is building a like-minded community. That’s you!

The expedition kicked off on World Water Day, 22 March 2017 in Las Vegas, and ended on 30 April 2017 in London, after running 1,688 km.

Mina completed the Seven Deserts Run in 2016, where she ran the equivalent of 40 marathons (1,049 miles) in 7 weeks, across 7 deserts on 7 continents. The campaign focused on water scarcity issues, and deserts were great settings for visualizing this story. The 7 Deserts Run expedition finished in the Mojave desert in Nevada, United States, near the start of the Six River Run expedition.
