Voices of Water

Voices of Water
for Climate

global research on the role of water in cooling our planet

Global restoration of natural water cycles is absolutely
essential for biodiversity and climate restoration.


Rehydrating the continents to restore natural water cycles and climate.


Educating globally to empower people to act locally to renew natural small water cycles to aid climate recovery


Jan Lambert and Dr. Michal Kravčík founded VOW in 2017 after working together for several years to bring his research to a broader audience.  In 2021 VOW became a program of Bio4Climate.

Our Scientists

Michal Kravc’ik

Author of a New Water Paradigm, water management engineer, hydrologist, He co-founded Water Holistic, providing integrated land and water management and consulting and educational services on effective strategies for sustainable river basins and landscape restoration.

Dr. Anastassia Makarieva

Researcher at Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute’s Theoretical Physics Division, researching life-environment interactions based on Prof. Victor Gorshkov’s biotic regulation concept, recently awarded Anna Boysken Fellowship at theTechnical University of Munich, Germany. She co-formulated the biotic pump theory (2007), contributed to a study on life’s metabolic optimum (2008). Her current focus is on the physics of ecosystem impacts on water cycles and moisture transport.

Jan Pokorny

Associate Professor Jan Pokorný works in the field of environmental protection and soil and atmospheric sciences. His main scientific interest lies in evaluating solar energy and evapotranspiration in connection with plant ecophysiology, wetlands management, heat island research, and climate change.
