Blue Planet Network Established 2002 Member since 2006

Mission and Vision

Blue Planet Network’s mission is to exponentially increase the impact of safe drinking water programs for people around the world.

Now a Division of East Meets West, Blue Planet Network has four primary programs that serve its global community of more than 100 expert water and sanitation organizations operating in 26 countries on four continents.


Blue Planet Network was founded in 2002 by Jin Zidell, an industrialist, philanthropist and environmentalist. In 2013, Blue Planet Network, an award-winning organization headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, merged with East Meets West (EMW) to accelerate innovation across the water sector, drive learning and visibility, and deliver improved clean drinking water and sanitation solutions to more people around the globe.
