Water! Taken For Granted, Necessary For Life! Finite & Irreplaceable, Let's Chat About Clean Water & Sanitation For All!

PAST EVENT

Water! Sustainability! Join us in a waste water treatment plant above London's Beckton Sewage Treatment Works (largest in Europe) during Water Smart Innovations, to discuss how can we help manage our water use, and the many fascinating technologies available to make our use of water more efficient and effective. UN: "Water is at the core of sustainable development and is critical for socio-economic development, healthy ecosystems and for human survival itself. It is vital for reducing the global burden of disease and improving the health, welfare and productivity of populations. It is central to the production and preservation of a host of benefits and services for people. Water is also at the heart of adaptation to climate change, serving as the crucial link between the climate system, human society and the environment. Water is a finite and irreplaceable resource that is fundamental to human well-being. It is only renewable if well managed." (United Nations, Water & Sustainability) Our informal online meetup in social virtual reality is unaffiliated with Water Smart Innovations 2021.
