Can we make the best of a globalized world where it is more common to own a mobile phone than to have access to a secure source of water? Can existing infrastructure be used grow inclusive worldwide networks for recording, reporting, and responding to environmental data? What roles do citizen science, hydroinformatics, the maker culture, and STEM education play in realizing a democratic resource management future?
