NYC WATER AND CLIMATE III
CLIMATE CHANGE AND WATER ARE INEXTRICABLY LINKED. What we do with water in cities can impact climate change, and climate change can impact water and exacerbate water scarcity in cities where people are already lacking access to safe drinking water. For the third year in a row, we are hosting a water charity event to make these links, help those without access to safe drinking water and sanitation, share with the community what is being done in NYC and globally in terms of climate action in the water sector, illuminate the importance of the topic in meeting UN Sustainable Development Goal 6, and inform citizens on how they can better use water to help mitigate climate change.
Join us for a virtual afternoon as we celebrate Climate Week NYC with our 3rd annual NYC Water and Climate event. It will be a fun-filled evening with a panel discussion followed by a virtual dance party and Live DJ sponsored by Visual Conductor, experiential design studio / virtual events. (bring dancing shoes and the family)!
This is a charity event to help Water for People deliver safe drinking water and sanitation in developing countries, where lack of safe drinking water can be exacerbated by climate change. So, working in the water sector and focusing on Climate Action with AI, this is our way of giving back!
