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 fourth year in a row, Cobalt Water Global will host an official Climate Week NYC event - 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, and inform citizens on how they can better use water to help mitigate climate change.
Thus far 2021 has been a climate crisis wake up call. Therefore, this Climate Week NYC is as important as ever to inspire climate action.
You do not want to miss this year's activities:
- On Friday September 24 (10-10:30 AM EST; 4:00-4:30 PM CET) will be a hosting a water charity Water and Climate Kahoot Speed Trivia Competition on Zoom.
- Throughout the Climate Week NYC week, we will also be hosting a series of brief talks/keynotes from global leaders who are helping to kickstart climate action in the water sector. Stay tuned here or make sure to follow us on social media for schedule announcing when the pre-recorded talks will go live. Catch the opening keynote by our Founder and CEO, Jose Porro which is now live here.
To register for the Trivia Zoom event, as either a viewer or competitor, please use this link. Instructions will be given for joining the competition if you wish to compete, but it is quite simple, you simply go to the www.kahoot.it site and enter the code given for each round during the Zoom session. If you just want to observe the fun, all you have to do is sit in the Zoom session. Winner of the open round will receive a framed photo of one of NYC's iconic water towers, which symbolize opportunity for climate action with water, by everyone.
Our annual NYC Water and Climate water charity event helps Water for People deliver safe drinking water and sanitation in developing countries, where lack of safe drinking water can be exacerbated by climate change. Giving back to those impacted by water scarcity and climate change is very important to us at Cobalt Water Global. As we continue our work in the water sector focusing on Climate Action with AI and inspiring others to take Climate Action, we will always support bringing clean water and sanitation to communities lacking these basic needs. We will always #givebackwater.
If you will be joining us virtually during Climate Week NYC, we ask that you please help Water for People and make a small donation here ($10 USD suggested but can be more or less). Donations go directly to Water for People. Make sure to type #givebackwater in the comments.
