We are a UK based Not for Profit Company founded in 2005. We are focussed upon uniting people around the world, to work together to protect the global water cycle, which is presently under threat. Our aim is to raise awareness and understanding of the water cycle and get action taken worldwide, which safeguards it. From carrying out extensive research we have pinpointed a vital link between the present instability in this cycle and the massive deforestation of the primal indigenous mountain forests worldwide. Hence we have devised a potential solution to this problem based upon the protection and restoration of the environments, which it is dependent upon to function effectively.
When we safeguard the water cycle we are safeguarding water, when we safeguard water we are safeguarding life and safeguarding the well being of present and future generations and all life forms. People, plants, animals and ecosystems all need water to exist. The regenerative nature of the water cycle is threatened. This is not something that can be ignored because it is our world, our water and our responsibility. Therefore it is up to us to take care of our water sources and the natural world that supports us and which we are integrally part of.
Working Paper for the Sustainable Development Goals Document Between November 2011 and March 2012 civil society organisations had a chance to contribute to the new sustainable development document, which would be signed by world governments in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012 and become known as ‘The Future We Want’.

In September 2012, we were invited as members of Mountain Partnership to submit a letter to the UNFCCC, to express potential future areas of work for the Nairobi Work Programme, giving reasons as to why mountains should be given greater focus.
This is a platform where major groups with a sustainability focus have been invited to contribute information to be considered within the contents of the Post 2015 Agenda.
As a civil society major group, focused on Sustainable Development and the Post 2015 Agenda, we took part in the FAO/ WFP, E Consultation.
On the 31st January 2014 we submitted research concerning the nexus between water security and food security into this discussion. The CFS report will be released in August 2015 as a contribution to the Post 2015 Agenda.
We envision a world where human societies live in peace and respect with nature and with each other regardless of each other’s traditions or religion and where the natural worlds thrive and teem with life and immense biodiversity. Our long-term vision is humanity living in accord with sustainability principles that are in harmony with nature, respect human rights and base economies upon consideration of the environment and each other. To achieve this, healthy natural ecosystems and environments will be essential. These are dependent upon a healthily functioning global water cycle. Likewise the regenerative nature of the water cycle is dependent upon ecosystems such as mixed mountain forests. Therefore our immediate vision and purpose is the protection and restoration of mixed mountain forests worldwide within 30 years.
Our Mission is to unite people around the world, to work together to protect the global water cycle, which is presently under extreme threat. Our goal is to ensure that freshwater is available for all, including future generations. Our main emphasis is upon safeguarding the water cycle. However because this is dependant upon healthy mountain ecosystems, our focus is to aid in the preservation and restoration of mountain region forests worldwide, with emphasis on the mixed native biodiversity within these. We are moved to action by the fact that freshwater shortages threaten all of humanity and life of Earth. The global water cycle is in danger of being irreparably destabilised. Yet this situation is not being given the urgent attention, which it requires. We are dedicated to getting this issue recognised and acted upon on a grand scale, as befits a subject of such crucial importance as our global freshwater supply. We work to influence legislation and planning, for the preservation of freshwater sources and securing the conservation and restoration of ecosystems, which are essential for the functioning of the global water cycle. We educate through bringing together the often-fragmented pieces of available information regarding this situation. It is our aim to make it more comprehensive, clear and accessible for all. Part of this work involves finding viable solutions to the problems that are occurring and escalating in the water cycle, with emphasis on the necessity for the long-term sustainability of freshwater. We do not endorse short-term water management solutions that do not include rebalancing and preserving the global water cycle and, which treat water as a finite limited commodity. We do not support activities, which threaten fresh water supplies or the complete privatisation and commodification of freshwater worldwide, as these threaten sustainable development. We consider that water security is only possible by protecting and restoring the natural ecosystems, which maintain the global water cycle.
What People are saying about us
I commend the great work you are both doing. Your long on the ground experience working with communities and building upon local knowledge is an asset for the Mountain Partnership.
I have been impressed by the sincerity, commitment and determination of the people involved in this project.

Meet our Directors
Tara Joy Co-Founder
In 2002 Tara Joy was greatly moved by her experiences of witnessing severe environmental degradation throughout the Himalayan mountain regions and the extreme water shortages that were occurring as a result of it. Therefore she co-founded Active Remedy in 2005 and has dedicated her life to uniting people around the world, to work together to protect the global water cycle. She has worked over many years on researching the situation and has helped to formulate a blueprint model that can be implemented to resolve it.
Stella Joy Co-Founder
Stella Joy has spent many years working for the protection of the global water cycle. Her focus has been the protection and restoration of the ecosystems that are essential in maintaining this cycle. She has been able to bring more attention to this within the UNFCCC since Active Remedy Ltd. became a partner in the Nairobi Work Program.
