Life without water: What happens when the glass is empty?
Water is critical to nearly all of the Sustainable Development Goals, yet research suggests that we have already surpassed our limit for freshwater consumption. What’s the way forward?
Join environmental journalist from the Guardian, Karl Mathiesen as he interviews the 2015 Stockholm Water Prize Laureate Shri Rajendra Singh. Rajendra Singh received the Prize for his innovative water restoration efforts, improving water security in rural India, and for showing extraordinary courage and determination in his quest to improve the living conditions for those most in need.
This will be followed by a presentation by Stockholm University Postdoctoral Researcher Fernando Jaramillo, whose recent study raised the global human freshwater footprint to a higher level than was previously thought, a dynamic debate-style panel and audience Q&A.
