About this webinar

Water is one of the most critical components on planet earth for life to exist. Humans can only survive three days without water! All the water the planet will ever have is already here, yet we have been abusing this precious and finite resource through waste, contamination and pollution.

As global populations continue to rise exponentially, the demand for water, sanitation and water management is also increasing exponentially; especially in developing countries. In order to create sustainable societies, water is most likely one of, if not the MOST, critical factors. Join us to learn how new water strategies can change the built world.
