Water is life. Yet, the confluence of a wide variety of unhealthy activities has imperiled water all around the world. From fresh water resources to the vast oceans, life is threatened. By 2025, 1.8 billion people will suffer water shortages. Two-thirds of the world’s population could face stressed water conditions. Our panel will address important pieces of the global threat to water and describe unexpected partnerships and unique efforts to restore health to our waters and ourselves.
