Taking the Water Conservation Cause to San Francisco’s BlueTech Forum
As a green building and sustainability consultant, when I wrote my book, Dry Run: Preventing the Next Urban Water Crisis, I fully envisioned a future in which new technologies, systems and applications would help reduce urban water use to the point where we could avoid future “water wars,” not only in the US but elsewhere in the world.
When I was asked to keynote the BlueTech Forum next week in San Francisco, I was excited to discover this kind of action-oriented group. Rarely have I had the opportunity to speak to an existing forum for investors, entrepreneurs and established water technology companies who share this kind of commitment.
As most of you know, I give green building keynotes all over the world. I love the opportunity to step things up a notch for groups who have a basic understanding of what needs to be done. In this presentation, I want to convey the broad range of water issues currently being faced by the developed countries, as well as the new opportunities for businesses of all kinds to step forward and engage with sustainability skills and mind sets.
I’m particularly excited about sharing my knowledge of sustainable water strategies that will lower the “water footprint” of the built environment through creative green building design and whole systems thinking.
When it comes to water, there’s no “1% vs. 99%”: we’re all in this together!
