The climate crisis is a water crisis, and the run-up to COP26 is the ideal time for the water sector to collaborate on climate change. Never before has the world been in such agreement on the need for action.
On Tuesday 5, 12 and 19 October at 09:00 BST, we will be gathering to collaborate on the climate crisis.
Join us to add your voice to the Water Climate Call to Action, raising the voice of the water sector for COP26. We will define a complete hierarchy of water climate issues, brainstorm solutions, and publish the Call to Action for water professionals and policy makers.
The Water Climate Discussion conference has two main aims - to come together with one voice for COP26, and to link together individuals with shared climate interests.
We will be joining together to produce the Water Climate Call to Action for water professionals and policy-makers and be linking together with others who share our specific climate interests. Allowing us to support each other with a host of different potential solutions.
