Agua e Cidade
This description of Wilson Passeto's work was prepared when Wilson Passeto was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
Wilson Passeto is empowering ordinary citizens to take steps to combat urban water scarcity, by providing them with a series of incentives and technical innovations to reduce their water consumption. He offers training and support to a growing cohort of “water agents,” who then help to change the habits and behavior of their friends and colleagues, fostering a major culture shift across Brazil.
