WaterBear Network is a free interactive video-on-demand platform that allows viewers to watch high quality content, interact with hundreds of purpose-driven organisations, and take action instantly, giving everyone, wherever they are, the tools to support the issues they feel inspired by.
The innovative digital platform and mobile app will showcase award-winning documentaries, inspirational original content, live streaming - and most importantly, will facilitate awareness and action. With original and curated content inspired by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), WaterBear viewers will be able to stream and download hours of video anytime and on any device – all for free.
Uniquely, WaterBear’s interactive technology will also enable subscribers to take instant action while watching and support leading charities around the world. The platform will allow the viewer to donate directly, as well as provide opportunities to get involved with the projects on the ground through volunteering, travel experiences, events, and campaigns.
“We are excited about WaterBear’s ability to encourage people to not just watch, but actually interact with the causes they care about. The first network of its kind, we have the chance to be at the forefront of the most pressing issues of our time – showcasing the work being done to protect our earth boundaries and human rights, and empowering us to take direct action to shape a better future for our fragile planet", Ellen Windemuth, CEO, WaterBear Network explains.
Dedicated to bringing together a global community that is passionate about the UN SDGs, WaterBear already has 65 non-profit partners on board spanning some of the world’s biggest environmental NGOs to a network of local, grass-roots organisations.
As we emerge from COVID-19, which continues to set back many environmental and human rights initiatives, WaterBear encourages the audience to engage with a world of constructive change based on three pillars: watch, join, take action.
The interactive network also aims to re-imagine corporate responsibility, creating a unique ecosystem for impact: from storytelling to innovative technology, it will help brands to fulfil their own SDG objectives.
WaterBear Network is backed by ZDF Enterprises and Off the Fence alongside a pioneering group of impact-focussed investors, led by CEO Ellen Windemuth.
