Revaluing Water – Live interactive broadcast
When: February 28, 2017 8:00am PT – 11:00am ET – 4:00pm GMT
Join noted architect and thought-leader William McDonough, and Circle of Blue director J. Carl Ganter for a timely interactive broadcast to reimagine how the world can respond more effectively to its water crises. Global water crises – from drought in the world’s most productive farmlands to the hundreds of millions of people without access to safe drinking water – are among the biggest threats facing the planet over the next decade. Bring your voice and participate in this virtual, interactive town hall on February 28, 2017, to share ideas about how our values about water can inform water value. Your input — in special breakout group discussions — will inform this urgent global conversation from the human right to water to valuing ecosystems. The stakes are high as the nation seeks context, debate and guidance. Your participation will also help set the agenda for Watershed: World Water Day, at the Vatican March 22, 2017.
